Antioxidant-rich fruit juice can boost your immune system and protect the body from all sorts of illness, including sun damage. Pomegranate juice has a higher concentration of antioxidants than juices like apple, orange and cranberry and also contains polyphenol antioxidants.
And now a team at the Department of Dermatology at the University of Wisconsin has found that pomegranate juice and oils protect the skin from UV damage.
Further research at the Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, also found pomegranate juice may help to redistribute fat away from the abdominal area - so may help improve your bikini body, too.
Pomegranate juice brands, such as Pomegreat, are available in supermarkets.
Adam Pritchard, Pomegreat CEO said: “Of course, the best way to stay safe in the sun is to wear plenty of high factor sunscreen and to stay in the shade.
“But we can all take care of ourselves from the inside as well as the outside, and we’re delighted that pomegranate juice gives us added sun safety.”
