The pandemic meant many people had to significantly change how they live their lives, and our beauty regimens were no different, as many people looked for more authentic, natural approaches to beauty and preventive care. As we look forward to the next 12 months, making health and beauty resolutions and fine-tuning your makeup routines, we have a look at two of the natural ingredients you can expect to find in some of the products inspired by age-old remedies. Prickly pear and its anti-ageing properties The prickly pear, found in Mexico and the Maghreb, or more specifically, prickly pear oil is renowned for its anti-ageing properties, and it can now be found in numerous cosmetics. Prickly pear oil is rich in vitamin E, polyunsaturated fatty acids and sterols, not only reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but can also improve skin tone and fight premature ageing. There is a growing number of cosmetics based on prickly pear, including creams and masks for the skin and hair. Flax to soothe and nourish The environmental qualities of flax have made it a key textile for the fashion world in 2021, but its benefits for the skin are not as well known. However, the powers of its flowers and seeds have been embraced by cosmetic brands, using flax in their serums, creams, and oils. The most sensitive skins will appreciate the soothing, anti-inflammatory and emollient powers of flax, which, as a bonus, has regenerating and repairing properties. You can also find flax in the moisturising section since it has nourishing virtues while improving the elasticity and tonicity of the skin. Like prickly pear, flax is also a top choice for mature skin because it would help delay skin relaxation and sagging. Additionally, it is not to be outdone when it comes to boosting hair in need of strength and thickness.
