Since we’re not entirely out of the woods for winter weather, let’s talk about the greatness of the oh-so-protective and moisturizing jojoba oil! From the Buxaceae plant family, this gem is very underrated when it comes to its benefits.
Rated E for Everyone:
Jojoba oil can be used on all skin types, including mature skin, sensitive skin, and acne prone skin. It’s great for those that suffer from rashes, eczema, psoriasis, and skin infections. Even if you’re just looking to to soothe and condition your skin, jojoba is for you, as it quickly absorbs in the skin.
Fight Oil with Oil:
Many times, our skin produces excess oil because there are environmental factors that pulls the moisture from our faces. As it closely resembles human sebum in skin, jojoba oil is delicate enough to be used on the face to help fight oily skin. Don’t worry, jojoba oil is noncomedogenic, which means it does not clog pores!
Nourishing, balancing, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-infectious are just a few of the many things this super oil can do. Jojoba oil also acts as a protective barrier to prevent loss of moisture in your skin. Its anti-bacterial properties also reduces acne breakouts.
Why So Serious(ly Effective):
What makes this oil so great? Perhaps it’s the vitamin E it contains, which helps with healing the skin from scars or acne while also acting as an antioxidant. The omega 3, omega 6, and omega 9 fatty acids in it, working alongside minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, all help to heal, protect, and soothe the skin. You can find it in many body and face oils, creams, lotions, and ointments that boast the same benefits.
Don’t let the winter cold get you and your skin down! Spring soon come and with the help of jojoba oil, soft and moisturized skin can be on the way as well!
