To look at nature for the best in the beauty ingredients is not just new. We personally climbed everything from carrots to roses over our bodies in the pursuit of flawless skin. However, a plant that seems to have a while in the industry is the cactus. These spotted little plants do not scream exactly "life" because they tend to grow in dry, dusty environments. But the big thing about the cactus is that it's almost invincible. It stays full and full of life while maintaining moisture in the driest and toughest conditions – which is exactly what we want for our skin, right? So it makes sense for us to turn to this unstoppable plant for our skin care routine.
Why is cactus water so good for you?
It is full of electrolytes: Cactus water can be used in a number of different ways. To give you an inner love, daily drinking cactus water can give your body a serious increase. Cactus water, also known as spotted pearl water, is filled with a high concentration of electrolytes.
Electrolytes are naturally present in our blood and help us balance the amount of water we have in our body. If we are not hydrated properly, and we sweat or send urine, we lose electrolytes, which may make us feel sluggish and drained. Energy drinks help restore electrolytes, making cactus water a good natural option, even if you only drink it. Electrolytes are crucial for our skin and hair as well, as they give us the wonderful, foggy, healthy glow.
Cactus water contains antioxidants: Cactus water also contains antioxidants that can help flush out your system and skin on all toxins. The mixture of electrolytes, antioxidants and vitamins found in cactus oil helps to protect your skin from aging, sun damage and even to replenish the skin's collagen content.
Why do we love cactus water!
It's good for your skin: Cactus water is ideal for your skin, especially if you suffer from dryness because it injects moisture back into the skin. In general, we are least hydrated during the winter because, when the weather cools, we forget to drink water. Plus, the cool air can really drain the moisture from your skin, which is why we double the moisturizer during the cooler seasons. However, cactus water is antibacterial, which helps fight acne and other skin feelings caused by bacteria.
It gives your hair a wonderful shine: Cactus water is not only good for your skin, it is also great for your hair. If you have dry, damaged, hairy hair that can really use a drink, cactus water will safely save your hair's life. Due to its moisturizing properties, cactus water gives your hair the hydration needed, as well as immediate shine. A large number of skin care products follow the latest trend, with a host of water cactus products. So, you can easily access all prickly action super easily by adding cactus water to your daily beauty routine.
We love the super affordable HASK Cactus Water Hair Care Collection, but you can also use Catcus water directly in your hair. After shampooing and conditioning, pour cactus water over the hair, allow it to sit for a few minutes and then rinse it.
