Finger Lime Fruit is amazingly Zingy and fights wrinkles - apparently.

Working outside a lot and being no spring chicken means I have my fair share of creases and folds so it's a toss up next time we get some finger lime fruit as to whether I put it in a salad or rub it on my face.

"Scientists discover fruit that fights WRINKLES

Anti-ageing power of ‘citrus caviar’ found in finger limes become the latest must-have cosmetic for those trying to hold back the years.

Finger limes known as ‘citrus caviar’ contain a high concentration of vitamin C

Tiny pearls of flesh found in finger limes resemble fish roe are latest must have.

After scientists discovered the anti-ageing power of ‘citrus caviar’ – the tiny pearls of flesh found in finger limes which resemble fish roe – the fruit has become the latest must-have cosmetic for those trying to hold back the years.


Finger limes contain a high concentration of vitamin C – 44 times greater than the amount found in blueberries. Vitamin C is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.


The high concentration of acid in the lime also breaks down dead skin cells, apparently leaving it softer and smoother."
