Tips for using organic prickly pear oil 

Ayda reveals its secrets to you

Then apply damask rose water on your skin. Therefore, the skin is toned and hydrated due to the damask rose, rich in antioxidant.

Finally, without drying your skin, pour 1 to 2 pressures of prickly pear oil in the palm of your hand. After that, you need to heat the oil by rubbing your hands quickly together for about 3 seconds. So it can penetrate the skin more easily. Following this, it only remains to gently massage your face for 1 minute.

Prickly pear seed oil for your evening skincare routine

It should be noted that this skincare routine is to be preferred in the evening, before going to bed.

Indeed, it is at night that the cell renewal process is most effective. During the day, our skin fights against all external aggressions: pollution, sun, cold, stress … It is when we are at home, sheltered from all these aggressions, that our skin regenerates best.

Therefore, it is more expedient to use fig oil at this time.
