It can be hard to keep up with the newest skincare trends and this one totally flew under our radar until recently. Cactus water has become a trendy skincare ingredient. The cool thing about cactus water is that the reason it is so beneficial to skin is genetic. Cacti live in very dry conditions and require little water. They hold onto hydration and contain more electrolytes than other plants out of sheer necessity.

So how can cactus water help my skin?

Although “cactus water” is the phrase du jour, it’s not just the water that has a lot of the skincare benefits. Cactus oil is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E. It is also a good source of vitamins A, D and K. What does this mean? Well, fatty acids are essential for protecting our skin’s moisture barrier, which helps maintain elasticity. Vitamins D, E and K are antioxidants. Vitamin A maintains collagen production.

Of course, cactus water or cactus essence are also beneficial as it’s the water that carries super hydrating electrolytes. And look specifically for prickly pear cactus products as it has the best combination of vitamins, antioxidants and electrolytes.

How else can I get the effects of cactus water?

So glad you asked! Well, you can’t jump on the bandwagon of every skincare trend, can you? Neither can we.
