Nature is amazing!
She produced prickly pear oil, which is just too awesome for words!
I recently discovered prickly pear oil and instantly fell in love with it's fresh, cucumber, grass like scent. I am always hooked when something naturally smells good.
I started to investigate further and it is no surprise that prickly pear oil is fast becoming a sought after ingredient in luxury skincare treatments.
I decided to base my own Luxury Anti-Ageing Serum around this incredible oil and it is already a personal firm favourite for my own use. The soft, gentle spring time scent carries me away momentarily as I apply my luxury anti-ageing serum. It is a vitamin and nutrient rich elixir containing prickly pear oil, camellia seed oil, cucumber oil and watermelon oil.
I thought I would share with you 6 top skin benefits of this luxurious skin oil.
Top Skin Benefit Number 1
Prickly Pear Oil contains 150% more vitamin E than Argan oil. This is the highest amount than any other beauty oil on the market. Basically vitamin E protects your skin against free radicals. Free radicals come in the form of pollution, sun damage, chemicals etc and if not tackled can increase the formation of wrinkles and ageing of the skin. Vitamin E works to protect your skin against all these things. And prickly pear oil has a whopping amount of vitamin E in it!
Top Skin Benefit Number 2
Prickly Pear Oil contains 60.5% linoleic acid. This is a natural fatty acid that strengthens and repairs the skin allowing it to better retain moisture. This gives the appearance of ironing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Top Skin Benefit Number 3
Prickly Pear Oil contains potent anti-oxidants called called betalains. There are more anti-oxidants in prickly pear oil than you would find in the anti-oxidant rich beetroot and acai. These anti-oxidants are powerful protectors against ageing.
Top Skin Benefit Number 4
Prickly Pear Oil contains amino acids. Amino acids stimulate collagen production. Collagen productions gives the appearance of gently plumping out the skin, giving that youthful look.
Top Skin Benefit Number 5
Prickly Pear Oil prevents blocked pores. This is due to the high levels of linoleic acid. The linoleic acid stops sebum from hardening and therefore works to combat blocked pores.
Top Skin Benefit Number 6
Prickly Pear Oil has natural anti-Inflammatory properties. This wonder oil is fabulous therfore for skin conditions like rosacea.
