Studies Determine that Lemon Bioflavonoids Containing Hesperidin and Proanthocyanidins Reduce Skin Inflammation and Aid in Skin Maintenance
A study performed for Anticancer Research determined the preventative effects of hesperidin, a citrus bioflavonoid, against inflammation in mouse skin caused by a tumor promoter. A further study conducted for Bordeaux Médical found that proanthocyanidins have been shown to strengthen capillaries.
Hesperidin is classified as a citrus bioflavonoid and can be found in fruits such as lemons, oranges and tangelos. Lemon bioflavonoids contain hesperidin as well as proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyandins are defined as a class of nutrients that belong to the flavonoid family. A further study conducted for Bordeaux Médical found that proanthocyanidins have been shown to strengthen capillaries. They also play an important role in the maintenance of elastin and the stabilization of collagen.
These important elements of lemon bioflavonoids make them outstanding to use in skin products for the reduction of external inflammation, building stronger capillaries and aiding Vitamin C in rebuilding collagen. The BioFlavonoid Toner formulated by Tiffany Lauren® contains lemon bioflavonoids coupled with Vitamin C, which provide quick, gentle relief for reddened or couperose skin. Furthermore, all of the products developed by Tiffany Lauren® are drug-free and avoid the use of additives such as lanolin, mineral oil and petroleum.
Reddish skin with swollen capillaries can be calmed with the use of lemon bioflavonoids that naturally contain healing proanthocyanidins and hesperidin. Therefore, bioflavonoids increase the skin's overall natural healing abilities. ChinaDollSkin distributes a BioFlavonoid Toner that effectively cleanses and calms couperose skin.
