We are all looking for that one magical product or ingredient that will solve all of our problems. Unfortunately, when it comes to skin care, there really is no magical cure in a single bottle. However, you can get very close. Prickly Pear Seed Oil also known as Barbary Fig Seed Oil has benefits that make other skin care solutions obsolete. As the skincare market focuses on organic and natural solutions, people are starting to take note about this new beneficial skin oil.
Both Argan Oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil are native to Morocco. For centuries, the people of Morocco have been perfecting the use of natural oils for dry skin. They prefer Prickly Pear Seed Oil for its amazing skin hydration properties and its ability to repair skin damaged by the intense Moroccan sun. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is created by painstakingly extracting the seeds of the Opuntia Ficus Indica cactus also known as the Prickly Pear cactus. These seeds are cold pressed to extract very little amounts of oil. Although it’s very time consuming to create this oil, the benefits are well worth it.
Benefit 1: Crazy amounts of Vitamin E
If your skin is craving vitamin E, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is like giving Niagara Falls to a thirsty person lost in the desert. This skin care oil has 150% more vitamin E than any other skin care product on the market. Nature truly had our dry skin in mind when it created the Prickly Pear cactus.
Vitamin E is fat-soluble and aids in the immune system development, cell function, and skin health. It’s an essential component needed to heal skin with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that defends the body from free radicals that are created within the body and from the environment we live in.
When you are exposed to a lot of UV light, it’s important to apply products high in vitamin E. During your time out in the sun, your body uses up its vitamin E reserves to repair your skin. When you can’t keep up with the sun, that’s when sunburns happen. Giving your skin Prickly Pear Seed Oil gives you the best line of defence against the sun and free radicals.
Benefit 2: Crazy amounts of Essential Fatty Acids
Your skin needs fatty acids. Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains a huge amount of Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9 fatty acids that are essential for skin cell membrane health. When the internal workings of the skin cell is well protected, the cell can function effectively. That outer part of the skin cell needs to be strong and effective at keeping unwanted harmful elements from entering the cell. These fatty acids are important in creating a natural oil barrier on the outside of your skin that keeps your skin looking fuller and hydrated which makes skin look younger.
When you are deprived of these acids, your skin can actually start to develop acne. Whiteheads and blackheads are a result of your body’s inability to protect itself from harmful outside elements. Lack of essential fatty acids can also inflame and dry out your skin. People prone to redness may also want to increase their essential fatty acid intake. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a natural way to give your skin the fatty acids it needs to produce beautiful younger looking skin.
Benefit 3: Prickly Pear Seed Oil absorbs into the skin quickly
I’m sure a lot of us have had similar experiences with cheap lotions. It can leave a slimy greasy film over the skin after you apply it. A good skin care product should absorb quickly into the skin which should leave your skin feel silky.
A lot of cheap lotions are comedogenic. Comedogenic is a fancy term for things that give you blackheads and whiteheads; basically things that clog the pores. Prickly Pear Seed Oil is non-comedogenic. It will absorb into all skin types without clogging your pores and leaves your skin silky smooth. It affects the skin at a much deeper layer that promotes healthy skin much further down than just the top layer.
Benefit 4: It’s a Natural Facelift
When it comes to a natural facelift, skin elasticity is the name of the game. Prickly Pear seed oil increases the elasticity around the eyes dramatically reducing crows feet. Fine lines around the mouth and forehead seamlessly disappear during a consistent routine. But unlike facelift, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is applied without needles or expensive procedures.
Facelift and other surgical procedures are an unnatural procedure that actually kills nerves effectively paralyzing the small muscles around the skin. Sure, your skin will look smoother because your skin is “relaxed” but you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your facial expressions for beautiful skin. Prickly Pear Seed Oil tightens the skin by promoting the growth of healthy skin cells. Why not look younger by having younger skin cells?… Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a great substitution to actual Facelifting.
Benefit 5: Reverses the Signs of Aging
When it comes to skin, there are certain signs that can give away a person’s age. Lack of sleep and dehydration are easy fixes but some signs come from years of bad habits. Smoking, exposure to sun, and a bad diet can prematurely add years to your skin. Obviously, getting rid of those bad habits can help a great deal to reverse these signs of aging. But sometimes your body needs a little help. Fine wrinkles can be due to dry damaged skin. A skin routine high in vitamin E can be a powerful weapon against fine wrinkles by speeding up cell growth which adds to a fuller hydrated look.
Benefit 6: Promotes Collagen Growth
Collagen is the main protein that connects human skin tissue. It gives your skin its structure. When your body produces enough collagen, it can firm up areas on your face. It has the ability to fill in deep wrinkles and adds to smoother looking skin. Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high amount of vitamin K. Vitamin K helps to heal damaged and bruised areas while while helping to protect the skin’s collagen.
The amino acids in Prickly Pear Seed Oil are required by the body to create rich dense collagen in the skin. Building the core structure with the best building materials will assure the the best results for beautiful looking skin.
Benefit 7: Minimizes Pores
As a side effect of having plenty of collagen in your skin, pores are smaller. Thanks to the essential fatty acids found in Prickly Pear Seed Oil, pores are kept healthy which translates to tight hydrated pores that appear small. Skin that lacks elasticity will have the disadvantage of having larger pores that are susceptible to clogged and suffocated pores.
Benefit 8: Say Goodbye to Acne
Prickly Pear Seed Oil has anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. As stated before, this oil will reduce the size of pores which reduces clogged pores. Acne in adults is usually an amino acid imbalance. When someone has higher levels of oleic acid than linoleic acid, they are much more likely to have acne. Compound that with having dry skin, acne is almost a certainty. That is why it is important that these individuals use an oil skin care product high in linoleic acid to counteract the effects of acne.
Benefit 9: Softens Skin
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is high in linoleic acid. That also helps sebum from solidifying which otherwise can lead to clogged pores and dry skin. Sebum is a substance that your body develops to protect the outer layer of your skin. When this substance is abundant and soft, your skin has a natural defence against outside elements that can damage and dehydrate your skin. Prickly Pear Seed Oil has what the skin needs to stay elastic yet soft.
Benefit 10: Reduces Unwanted Dark Spots
Because Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high concentration vitamin K, it will affect areas with uneven pigment concentration. It is also known to reduce the appearance of spider veins. Prickly Pear Seed Oil rich in antioxidant and is the best source for lightening, smoothing, and reducing the dark spots on the skin especially around sensitive areas such as the eyes. Hyperpigmentation is when patches of skin appear darker due to a culmination of melanin. Prickly Pear Seed Oil can reduce the melanin in those areas giving your skin a smoother more unified look.
