The pleasant scent and unique taste of bergamot can be attributed to its source. Bergamot is extracted from the rinds of the fruit and leaves that grow on bergamot orange trees. It adds a pleasant and some say calming, citrus scent to beauty and health care products. Yet, the benefits of bergamot are not all aesthetic. This powerhouse ingredient can help improve the appearance of skin and reduce acne.
Bergamot oil contains anti-bacterial properties as well as limonene, a powerful anti-oxidant. These extracts soothe the skin, reduce inflammation and balance skin oil making it an effective natural ally in fighting blemishes. By balancing skin oil production, Bergamot oil lowers the chances of future clogged pores which cause visible acne. It also has the potential to reduce sebum production around acne. Reducing the amount of sebum around foreign particles under the skin reduces redness and irritation caused by acne.
Bergamot oil’s natural ability to prevent acne from forming by balancing oil production, combined with its ability to reduce the appearance of active blemishes made it a clear winner for our blisanni Naturals Toner and our blissani Naturals Clear line of natural luxury beauty products. Note: the anti-aging benefits caused by the high powered anti-oxidants in bergamot oil are an added bonus.
