Yuzu Lemon Skin Care Benefits:
Yuzu lemon, also known as Citrus junos, originally comes from central China and Tibet. The citrus fruit then found its way to Japan and Korea where it gained publicity as a highly regarded skin care ingredient. Due to its composition of hydrocarbons, limonene, and linalool, the yuzu fruit provides a very strong aromatic, which can be incorporated into a variety of skin care products. 1 Yuzu skin benefits are also known to include antioxidant protection, which can help to promote anti-aging and rejuvenation for a more youthful appearance.
Antioxidant protection works to neutralize harmful free radicals present in the environment as well as inside the body. Oxidative stress, such as glycation, contributes towards aging by damaging the skin. The phytochemicals in yuzu essential oil, which include anthocyanins, carotenoids, flavanones, and flavonoids, have been recognized as antioxidant agents that can exhibit great antiglycation activity. 2 As a result, yuzu lemon is widely implemented in anti-aging formulations for its ability to help protect skin integrity and quality when formulated at a meaningful level.
Furthermore, topical application of yuzu seed extract has been found to help thicken the epidermis or top surface layer of skin. It works by promoting skin cell proliferation, thereby encouraging skin cell turnover. In doing so, yuzu seed extract helps to rejuvenate these top layers, which can lead to an overall softening effect for the skin. 3 Given its marketable fragrance and desirable skin care benefits, yuzu benefits can be found in a diverse number of products ranging from massage oils to anti-aging creams, masks and lotions.
