“If there were such a thing as the fountain of youth, you’d think it would spring forth from a lush and sunny tropical paradise. But beauty secrets are often found in less hospitable places.”
The article goes on to highlight natural beauty-boosting ingredients found in extreme climates (such as the arctic, the mountains, and the desert) and recommends skin care products that feature them. One of these ingredients is prickly pear, the desert fruit that is “intensely hydrating and rich in betalains, a type of antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation and speed cellular removal.”
Where to find this ultra-hydrating cactus pear? Why, in our very own Hydrating Cactus Mask, of course! Along with prickly pear, this mask contains soothing blue agave to ease discomfort and signs of redness – while deeply hydrating and preventing moisture loss. Protection is further enhanced with smithsonite and malachite stone extracts to shield against environmental stress and pollution.
