Lime Oil- Ingredient of the Month
What is it?
Lime Oil is extracted from the Lime fruit, either by expression or by distillation. With expression, it’s only the peel of the unripe lime skin, whereas with distillation, the peel and /or the whole ripe fruit is used. Lime Oil has a sharp, citrus peel smell and is pale yellow to light olive in colour.
Many years ago, ships would transport Lime Oil/Juice. These were called 'lime juicers' and ship crews depended on the oil/juice to prevent scurvy, because of the high vitamin C content.
Limes, like lemons, are full of antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins.
How can Lime Oil help my skin?
There are many benefits when using citrus fruits on the skin and lime is no exception.
Lime oil has wonderful skin lightening properties and is very effective at lightening dark areas on the skin. Skin will look brighter and luminous, creating an even skin tone.
As we age, melanin can build up and accumulate in your skin, creating dark spots and other key signs of ageing. Lime Oil helps to inhibit melanin production, slowing down the build-up of age spots, reducing this age related hyper-pigmentation.
Minimises Open Pores
Lime Oil possesses astringent properties, which can be used to tighten pores and temporarily reduce oil production to provide a brighter and flawless complexion.
Helps to Treats Acne and Blemishes
Lime Oil is one of the most effective natural ingredients for clearing acne and it’s scars. This is due to the rich vitamin C content and flavonoids found within the oil. Skin will be detoxified and cleansed, inhibiting the growth of the acne causing bacteria.
The citric acid present in Lime Oil can slough off dead skin cells, leaving the new ones exposed. This will improve not only skin tone and texture, but will improve the absorption of skincare products, making them far more effective.
Energy for Mind and Body
Lime Oil has a refreshing, rejuvenating, revitalising and uplifting effect on the body.
