Cactus belong to a family of plants called Cactaceae a family with 127 genres. Cacti the plural form for cactus is know for its moisturizing and  skin smoothing pulp interior.  Cactus exist mostly in places with drought. They exist in dessert even in Atacama dessert the driest place on earth. They have the ability to store water. They are always found succulent compared to where they are found.

Just as cactus prevent evaporation of moisture for itself so it does the same for the skin and nothing keeps the skin healthy and vibrant than moisture in the skin. Cacti also works as an antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals and also protect the skin from dessert sun burn. Because of the cooling nature of cactus, it can help to soothe irritated and red skin.
