Succulents: Newest Skincare Trend
Ever receive a plant as a gift? Oh yeah and forget to water it for a while, run over to it randomly to check on it, and notice that it is still very much alive… those are most likely succulents. These desert thriving plants have the beauty industry going crazy right now! Just about all the top brands have come out with a beauty product that’s in honor of these low maintenance plants. If only our beauty routine could be low maintenance, am I right ladies?
Why Are They So Good?
Cactus extract is packed with antioxidants that can calm inflammation- sound familiar? I’ll give you a hint… Aloe! Cactus plants also have oils that are great for hydration. Succulents have strong, ample leaves that endure some harsh weather and many days without moisture. The ingredients involved in keeping them alive during these tough periods are what the beauty industry is raving about! If you are planning to spend a lot of time outdoors this summer then you too will need to lock in all that moisture.
