We're willing to put just about anything on our faces in pursuit of glowing, youthful skin (snail slime comes to mind), but when we heard that people were harnessing the power of the humble cactus, we were concerned. (Does it, umm, hurt?)
Don't worry, it's not the prickly parts of cacti, it's cactus water, which is derived from the fruit that grows on the prickly pear cactus. The fruit is juiced and turned into a puree that has a bunch of health benefits. It’s rich in the amino acid taurine, which helps stop free radicals and muscle tissue damage, and it’s high in a rare form of antioxidants called betalains, which have hydrating and antiaging properties.
"boscia explained that the Cactus Water Moisturizer is formulated with Queen of the Night cactus. The unique ingredient actually adapts to drastic climate conditions and rebounds from intense dehydration. Now, it offers the same benefits to skin in the moisturizer including hydrating and rejuvenation. Other ingredients include Aloe Vera, South African resurrection plant and a repairing peptide complexion. Together, the combination smooths, boosts elasticity, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and helps skin stay moisturized for longer. If you’re looking for a lightweight moisturizer in the summer, this one is a great option. It’s also fast absorbing and lightweight, but still delivers ample hydration and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive." - www.thegloss.com 🌵💧#justaddcactuswater #cactuswater @sephora
