It’s almost prickly pear season, and it won’t come a moment too soon. For those unfamiliar with the cactus fruit, don’t be misguided by its prickly exterior. Its inside promises a juicy smooth pulp, tasting like a hybrid of a sweet mango and tangy apple.
The good news is that if you aren’t fond of the fruit itself, you can still reap its goodness in skincare. Prickly pear seed oil has taken the world by storm, let’s call it the Argan oil of the decade. The fruit itself is filled with nature’s wonders, amino acids, vitamin B, calcium, beta-carotene, magnesium and iron.
The prickly pear seed oil is good for all skin types, even the most sensitive. It serves as an anti-inflammatory calming and healing irritated and sensitive skin.
The concentrate is also known for its anti-aging properties which has made it a favorite among the ladies. Thanks to its high potency, nourishing and regenerating ingredients including a super-powerful source of antioxidants this concentrate is being adopted in the anti-aging world of skincare. Thanks to its additional anti-inflammatory properties, it is as potent as it is safe and kind to the skin.
The above properties also means that it is a brilliant pick-me-upper, adding brightness and elasticity to dull and tired skin. Its high concentration of anti-oxidants also means that it is great at smoothing the skin.
Simply put, it is one of nature’s miracles in a bottle.. Perhaps the point to take into consideration is its overall, general goodness. It is a well-rounded oil that will heal, nourish and protect the skin, body and hair. Will it alleviate all of your specific issues, such as sun spots and wrinkles, certainly not, but it will aid in your general overall beauty effort. Enjoy!
