FYI Beauty Secrets – Pomegranates

If you’ve ever tried, you’ll know how difficult is to get to the delicious seeds. I’ve tried numerous times and ended up with pomegranate juice everywhere. Then I learned this amazing secret:

  2. Score the rind with four separate cuts, but do not cut so deep you hit the seeds.
  3. Soak the pomegranate for about 5 minutes in water.
  4. Break it apart.
  5. Remove the rind and membranes.
  6. Remove the seeds to a dish.

Okay, now that you know how to get to the seeds, you’ll want to try this amazing face and body scrub.
