Tangelo: The Trending Skincare Ingredient for Best Complexion

We all know citrus fruit is good for us, especially when it comes to our skin. Mandarins, oranges, grapefruit, lemons and more are an amazing source of vitamin C, are rich in antioxidants, and can simultaneously give you a gorgeous glow and boost your skin health. Here to do all that (and then some) is a skincare ingredient you perhaps haven’t heard of just yet, but should be number one on your routine radar – introducing tangelo. 

A juicy hybrid between tangerines and pomelos (AKA grapefruit), the tangelo is packed full of nourishing benefits, making it skincare’s next big multi-hyphenate ingredient. So, what is tangelo actually made up of – and how can you use it to turbocharge your skincare routine? Let’s find out… 

What are the benefits of tangelo? 

Like most citrus fruits, the tangelo’s benefits are ample, and can be harnessed to address a broad range of skin concerns. The most prominent benefit of any citrus fruit-based skincare is the vitamin C content, which is practically off the charts in this kind of natural ingredient. Vitamin C is a must-use skincare ingredient for all skin types, as it’s gentle but provides maximum results, working to reduce uneven tone and texture, minimise dark circles, hydrate the skin, and control acne and blemishes. Vitamin C also promotes collagen production, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to maintain youthful, plump skin and combat the physical signs of ageing. 

Tangelos also contain vitamin A, which like vitamin C, is full of fantastic skin health properties. These include improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production, evening out the skin’s tone, and addressing acne by gently resurfacing the skin. 

If they didn’t already achieve enough, vitamins C and A are also both antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Antioxidants are a crucial part of any skincare routine, as they help to prevent free radical damage that we experience in daily life, and consequently, can prolong physical ageing signs like wrinkles, and stave off hyperpigmentation and dullness. The anti-inflammatory properties of vitamins C and A mean that tangelo is a super effective protector against the elements and can reduce the potential for irritation when used regularly. 

Finally, the last ingredient of note in tangelo is citric acid. Citric acid is an alpha hydroxy acid, AKA an AHA, making it a superstar chemical exfoliator. AHAs work by breaking down the bonds between skin cells to free up dead ones that can then be gently sloughed away, revealing a brighter, more even, and glowier complexion. 

Who should use tangelo skincare? 

As a natural ingredient, tangelo is an equal opportunity skin booster – that is, it’ll be gentle yet effective enough for skin type. As we’ve mentioned, tangelo has heaps of juicy benefits, including combating fine lines and wrinkles in mature skin types, hydrating dry skin, soothing and clearing acne-prone skin, and protecting every complexion against environmental damage, which is a must regardless of your concerns. 

Of course, no matter your skin type – but especially if you’re sensitive! – you should test out any new product before you completely integrate it into your routine to ensure you don’t experience any irritation.
