If you have never used jojoba oil, you have been missing a lot of benefits. From hair to skin, you can profit from this super nourishing oil. Here’s why!
Let's start by saying it: Jojoba oil is good for your skin, lips and hair. It is rich in vitamin A, E and D and it is also packed with antioxidants and fatty acids –this is because it has very similar properties to those of our skin sebum, therefore it can penetrate deeply and reach beyond the surface of the skin.
Jojoba is a powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, analgesic anti-inflammatory oil, and it can be used in all types of skin.
How can you include it in your beauty routine?
As a skin moisturizer
You can try adding as the final step of your moisturizing routine, to seal the moisture and as it mimics your skin’s sebum it is going to nourish your skin.
As a makeup remover
As oil dissolves oil it can be used to remove makeup. Just add a few drops in a reusable makeup removal pad and gently wipe your makeup.
Use it along with your SPF
The plant of jojoba can protect itself from sun damage, so if you layer it with your SPF, it can provide extra protection.
Use it for breakouts
When the skin is too dry –sometimes because you are over-cleansing– the sebaceous glands may overproduce sebum. Jojoba may reset this overproduction cycle.
For your lips
Jojoba is an amazing option to hydrate chronically dry lips. Its antioxidants will calm the skin and the fatty acids soften and protect the outer layer of your skin.
As a cuticle conditioner
It is great to soften the skin around your nails on top of that, its antibacterial and antifungal properties will add protection.
Hair conditioner or treatment
Jojoba oil works wonder as hot oil or pre-wash mask –especially for dry hair or itchy scalp. And if you use it as a leave-in conditioner, it will act as a heat protectant and help manage frizz. If your problem is dandruff, jojoba has antifungal properties and might help fight the yeast-like fungus responsible for causing dandruff.
