Skin Benefits

 

In Peru and Mexico, paintings dating as far as over 10,000 years old found in the ancient ruins depict various human encounters with the cactus plant.   Through these ancient paintings, you can discover that various types of cactus plants have been used for over centuries as a food, ornament, medicine, and some specific types used for its psychoactive properties.

If you ever had the chance to live or visit some of the desert states of the U.S. like Arizona or even parts of Mexico, you will be able to endlessly encounter a variety of cactus plants. And the Prickly Pear Cactus is an especially common type of cactus you will find along these regions.

Prickly pear cactus plants are a common part of the diet in Mexican and Mexican-American cultures, but only the younger prickly pear cacti are eaten as the older plants become too tough to eat.  They can and have also been used for medicine. Various researches done on the prickly pear cactus have shown that the plant may help decrease cholesterol levels and help fight viruses in the body.  High amounts of pectin and fiber in the prickly pear cactus have shown to help lower blood glucose.

Apart from the great health benefits, prickly pear cactus are amazing for promoting healthy skin.  It is abundant in amino acids, vitamin B, calcium, beta-carotene, magnesium, and iron which delivers incredible anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin.

In the recent years, prickly pear cactus has been receiving a lot of attention in the beauty community for its amazing skincare benefits. There has been an increasing popularity from the major beauty publications about the amazing skincare and beauty benefits of the prickly pear cactus as well as skincare products featuring the prickly pear cactus ingredient such as the Neogen Dermalogy Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask.

BIO-PEEL GAUZE PEELING WINE
Review by Stella Thai

I was so, so ridiculously excited to try out this peeling pad because it’s been so hyped and so many have given amazing reviews for it. It’s been everywhere on Youtube, Instagram, blogs… so I figured that it was about time for me to hop on board of this train too and see what the hype is about. I did have to choose between the yellow (lemon) and purple (wine) but I ended up going with this one, for the very superficial fact that it would have looked prettier in photos. I know, I’m not very scientific, am I?

Foam Cleanser Green Tea & Day Light Sunscreen Review by Tristen Zaryn

This gentle cleanser made with natural green tea is definitely one of the best natural cleansers for sensitive skin on the market. I am very acne-prone so to put my confidence in a product like this is a huge win. I feel like it can draw out dirt and impurities as effectively as any other cleanser out there. The foam helps lather up the product quickly and soothes my easily-irritated skin. I usually use this in the morning to help feel more awake, pampered and ready to take on the day. It also does not leave my skin feeling stripped or damaged in any way, which I love!

NEO I SPOTLIGHT
The moisturizers you need to keep on your skincare cabinet all winter long

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... and to feel a lot like winter. Let's face it, winter is quickly approaching and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. #guilty

I remember the old days when I used to think moisture was just about looking dewy and keeping my skin hydrated. I had no idea how important it was to keep my skin moisturized in order to avoid wrinkles, acne, rosacea and even oiliness. Thankfully  I learned my lesson and nowadays moisturizing is an essential step of my everyday life.
