Native to Asia, yuja is a citrus fruit that resembles a cross between a lemon and an orange. The fruit is small and spherical, with a thin, yellow-orange skin, and it has been used in Korean and Chinese medicine for centuries.
Recently, yuja has gained popularity as an ingredient in skincare products. In this sense, this citrus fruit is full of oh-so-amazing vitamin C, having anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, brightening, and collagen-boosting properties that will make your complexion look glowy and healthy. In fact, it is often compared to lemons and oranges in terms of effectiveness!
Yuja is a natural fruit, so it is considered to be a clean and safe ingredient to use on the skin. However, if it is your first time using this goodie, it is important to do a patch test before.
