Whether you like to use it on its own or if you like to mix and match different ingredients to create your very own safe and natural skincare products, such as this this prickly pear seed oil mask we’ll get to in a second, although not as popular as other oils available on the market today, prickly pear is definitely one that your skin will thank you for later.

This oil has tons of great benefits for the skin. To keep things short, it is all-around anti-aging. But if you want to get into the details a bit more, this oil helps reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps even out skin tone and gives you a fresh, natural, youthful glow. Prickly pear seed oil also has a really high concentration of vitamin K, which is actually what sets this oil apart from others. This ingredient makes it much more effective in brightening under-eye circles with continuous use, of course. Another one is Vitamin E. And as you probably already know, Vitamin E is one superstar skincare ingredient. It can help lighten sunspots and other sun-induced hyperpigmentation. This makes it a great moisturizer that actually lowers water loss, and seals the moisture in.

But if you want to be more creative and you’ve got some time on your hands, then this prickly pear seed oil mask is definitely worth a try.

What You Need:

What To Do: 

Making homemade face masks is really simple. In fact, gathering all the ingredients you need is probably the hardest part. The same goes for this one. So once you have everything ready, simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Keep on mixing until you have a nice, smooth consistency. Once you achieve that, then you have your very own prickly pear seed oil mask.

How To Apply:

When you want to apply a face mask, you should always start with a clean base—this means you should wash your face as your normally would then pat dry with a towel. You don’t want to let your face mask sit on dirty skin.

Next, either with a brush or even just your fingertips, whichever you prefer, simply spread the mask evenly all over your face. Of course, you want to avoid getting it into your eyes and mouth (although, you can rest assured that this mask is not toxic at all—nothing but safe ingredients here.)

Once you have your face covered, you can let it sit for a good 15 to 20 minutes. You can actually use this time to clean up what you used to make this mask or you can just kick your feet up, sit back, and relax.

After the 15 to 20 minutes, rinse off completely and then you can follow up with the rest of your regular skincare routine (moisturizer, etc.)
