As the cold season approaches, we start wondering what natural skin creams we should use. Dryness and dullness are the main challenges in winter and are mainly caused by harsh weather. Amongst the most important natural skin care tips is the fact that you should mix and match natural oils in order to achieve the best natural face cream.  Nevertheless, the best vegan friendly skin care recipe is the one that includes natural pomegranate, sweet almond oil and raspberry oil. Here is why a combination of these three elements will help your skin stay healthy even in the cold weather.

 The core benefits of pomegranate, sweet almond oil and raspberry oil

  • Pomegranate has one of the most powerful antioxidants you can find that not only they nourish the skin, but also prevent damage caused by free radicals. It acts as an anti-ageing product because of the high content of Vitamin C and it has an important role in the production of collagen. Organic pomegranate juice is a powerful moisturizer that softens the skin.
  • The sweet almond oil is a promoter of flawless skin. It was proven that almond oil is mild and it features hypoallergenic properties which make it suitable for sensitive skin. It is rich in Vitamin E, an antioxidant that will help your skin cells to regenerate quickly. Furthermore, regular use of almond oil will help your skin combat stress and UV damage.
  • Raspberry seed oil is popular because of its anti-ageing effects supported by the high content of ellegic acid. Various studies have proven that this antioxidant reduces the destruction of collagen and inflammatory response, both of which are the main cause of the appearance of wrinkles. It is also rich in Vitamin E which prevents oxidative damage.

How to use a homemade pomegranate, sweet almond and raspberry oil

So, let`s see how to achieve the best natural oil for face nourishment! You will need 4 tablespoons of natural pomegranate seed oil, 4 tablespoons of raspberry seed oil and 4 tablespoons of sweet almond oil. Mix the oils and transfer to a small jar for storage. It is best to use it when it reaches room temperature due to the fact that colder or hotter oil might cause unwanted reactions on your skin.

After cleansing or before putting makeup on, you should apply some Pomegranate seed oil, raspberry seed oil, and sweet almond oil. Use 3-6 drops of the oil mixture in your palms, rub together to warm the oils and then use your fingertips. Gently press the warm oil into the dry areas of your face or where you see fine lines and wrinkles. This technique will help the oil to be absorbed quickly into your skin.


There are no documented precaution regarding this recipe of natural oils, but it is best to not overuse the mixture. Applying the oil once or twice a day is more than enough due to the fact that those oils moisturize from a cellular level. In some cases, applying more oil than recommended can lead to the appearance of acne, red spots or pimples. Using it carefully will act as a natural facelift cream, which will make your skin healthy and nourished.
