One hot ingredient we’re seeing everywhere in Seoul lately is skin-brightening, Vitamin-C packed Yuja – a type of Korean fruit.
If you’re curious about it, here’s the need to know about Yuja in skincare.
WHAT IS IT?
Yuja is a type of citrus fruit that’s popular in Korea and other parts of Eastern Asia.
In Japan, it’s commonly referred to as ‘Yuzu’. It’s been used medicinally and as a skincare ingredient in Asian beauty products for centuries.
It is known to help soothe and soften dry, irritated skin and the refreshing scent makes it perfect for fruit oils. Koreans also drink it as a refreshing tea – Yuja Cha.
WHY IS IT A GOOD SKINCARE INGREDIENT?
Packed full of natural Vitamin C, Yuja is an ideal skin brightening ingredient. It is perfect for those suffering from dull skin, post-acne marks and dark spots.
With 3 times more Vitamin C than lemons, it is a potent antioxidant that can fight against free radicals, which are a cause of premature aging.
WHO SHOULD USE YUJA?
Yuja is a perfect skincare ingredient for those that:
- Have skin that looks oily on the surface, but is dehydrated inside
- Are concerned about dull-looking skin or dark spots
- Want glowing skin
- Are looking to hydrate and brighten skin at the same time
