Yuzu is a kind of orange that are often used in Japanese and Korean makeup products
If you’re into Japanese and Korean skincare, you’ve surely heard about the yuzu fruit. Yuzu fruit (or yuja, in Korean), is a fragrant citrus fruit - sort of like a cross between an orange and a lemon - often used in Asian skincare. Known as the Japanese grapefruit, its fresh fragrance, and high vitamin C content makes yuzu one of the top trending skincare ingredients. Do you know what sort of benefits that yuzu can provide that makes it such a popular ingredient among beauty addicts?
Yuzu has a ton of benefits! First, the high content of vitamin C in yuzu means the fruit is rich in antioxidants. That means yuzu can improve skin immunity and protect the skin against cancer causing free radicals. Yuzu also helps protect against skin infections, acne, and bacteria growth. Lastly, Yuzu has an anti-aging property known to boost the production of collagen, thus making the skin firm and reduce wrinkles and other fine lines.
