Benefits of Pomegranate Tea
It has anti-ageing benefits
Pomegranates are a powerhouse of antioxidants, which are incredibly beneficial for your skin. These antioxidants fight free radicals in your cells to remove wrinkles, age spots, scars, blemishes and improve your skin’s elasticity and overall health. To reap more benefits for your skin, here’s what you can do while sipping your pomegranate tea – apply a pomegranate sheet mask. While the tea will work its magic from the inside, the Garnier Hydra Bomb Pomegranate Serum Sheet Mask will work on your skin from the outside, leaving it hydrated, soft and supple.
Protects against harmful UV rays
Another benefit of consuming pomegranates is that it protects your skin against the harsh UV rays. Further, it helps prevent skin cancer and reduce the occurrence of signs of sun damage. However, this does not mean that you start stocking up on the fruit or tea bags and stop applying sunscreen. Whether you drink pomegranate tea or not, sunscreen will continue to be one of the most important skincare tips. Make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen that has SPF over 30. You can try the Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum Cream with SPF 40/PA+++. Infused with Yuzu lemon extracts and vitamin C serum, this cream protects your skin against skin tanning, dark spots and sunburns.
It’s rich in Vitamin C
Vitamin C boosts your skin’s collagen production, fights against sun damage, lightens and reduces the dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and enhances your skin’s radiance and glow. Vitamin C is nothing short of a miracle vitamin for our skin and pomegranates have an abundance of this vitamin. So, it won’t be completely wrong if we vote the pomegranate tea as the ‘best tea for glowing skin’. To give your skin an additional boost of vitamin C, you can also apply the Garnier Bright Complete Vitamin C Serum. This antioxidant-rich serum reduces dark spots and acne marks and gives you an even-toned skin.
Aids weight loss
Pomegranate tea is said to boost your metabolism, which helps expedite your weight loss process. How? Improved metabolism means you can burn more calories in a day. Hence, you lose weight faster.
Improves heart health
Pomegranate tea can lower your blood pressure levels, in turn boosting the heart health. Its regular consumption is also said to reduce inflammation, cholesterol and increase oxygen levels in your blood.
How to Make Pomegranate Tea
Method 1: Boil two cups of water in a saucepan and add half a cup of dried pomegranate flowers in the boiling water. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes. Strain and drink hot.
Method 2: In the boiling water, add pomegranate concentrate and green tea or black tea. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes and strain.
