Certain compounds present in pomegranates stop the enzymes from breaking down collagen, thus maintaining skin health.

Furthermore, this fruit stimulates proliferation of keratinocytes, the cells that form the outermost layer of your skin. The increase in the number of these cells enables your skin to repair itself better.
