The prickly pear cacti have developed highly effective moisture-retention abilities and resistance to UV-A radiation, which are characteristics that are incredibly beneficial for our skin. Prickly Pear stem extract is made from extracts of the prickly pear fruit and stem, and has been found to be an effective ingredient for skin hydration, nourishment, and protection. Aqua Cacteen is being called the next generation Aloe Vera. This ultra refined aloe vera elixiris rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins to protect, soothe, and moisturize the skin. It also protects against environmental stressors that we are bombarded with every day to firm and deeply hydrate the skin.Skin Benefits of Prickly Pear

A new ailment to add to these pandemic-times…. MASKNE!
What is it? Mask acne (aka maskne) is a real thing, and it’s plaguing a lot of us wearing masks on our faces everyday for work, errand running, and day to day outings. It is especially stubborn and relentless during these hot summer months. Breakouts and blemishes are happening on our faces along the areas where the protective material is sitting on our face, by trapping dirt, oil, and sweat. But the solution is not to stop wearing that mask! It’s imperative to protect yourselves and others during these times. What you CAN do is take some steps to minimize the not so fun side effects of facial coverings.
