Cactus has been seeping into a number of beauty products as of late. Turns out, the prickly plant actually has a number of skin-saving benefits including anti-inflammatory properties and a high level of antioxidants. Plus, cacti’s ability to thrive in dry climates and retain moisture is something skin and hair could benefit from.
