With so many different oils out there, it can be overwhelming when it comes to choosing which is right for you. We decided Jojoba Oil deserves its moment in the spotlight, and we'll tell you why!
Continue reading to find out more about this magical, versatile oil, and why you should be adding it into your routine!
Firstly, what is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil is derived from the seeds of the jojoba shrub, a perennial native to the North American deserts. The oil is extracted by cold-pressing, a process that helps maintain the rich nutritional value of the oil.
If you choose to slather it on your face face, jojoba oil mimics the skin’s sebum and balances out your complexion, adding more sebum where it’s needed, and winding down production where it’s not. As for your hair? Sebum also naturally coats your strands, so applying jojoba where you need it the most can make your hair feel soft and even boost shine. Now that we've teased you with some of the benefits, let's dive in further!
Jojoba Oil Soothes Dry Skin
Similar to other facial oils, Jojoba Oil soothes and prevents dry and/or irritated skin. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help calm complexion while also providing the hydration it needs to restore itself back to balance. Use a few drops of Jojoba Oil after cleansing or mix it into your favourite moisturizer to elevate its effectiveness!
Delays Signs Of Skin Aging
Potent in Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil can help the skin defend itself from damaging free-radicals that can cause premature aging and/or skin damage. This powerful oil is also rich in amino acids, which are the building blocks of collagen. The result? Improvement in the skin's tone, texture and elasticity!
Naturally removes makeup
Jojoba Oil makes for a great makeup remover, since it’s lightweight and non-greasy. As a result, it effortlessly removes your makeup without tugging at the skin! Massage a few drops onto your face, and let it sit for about a minute. Wet a soft washcloth with warm water and gently wipe your makeup off, leaving your eye makeup until last so the oil has more time to do its thing. Lightly pat your skin dry, then continue on with your skincare routine!
Ditch Hair Dandruff
When Jojoba Oil is massaged into the scalp, the added hydration can help prevent dandruff or an itchy scalp. As mentioned above, this oil is very skilled when it comes to balancing out the skin, so ongoing use on the scalp may also keep those pesky flakes from returning.
Promote Hair Thickness And Growth
The various vitamins and minerals found in Jojoba Oil (Vitamins E, B and C, zinc and copper) provide a rich nourishment when applied to the hair, and help encourage those locks to grow thick, long and strong! Jojoba oil is recommended for anyone suffering with hair loss, or any major hair growth goals. Apply a few drops to the hair shaft when wet, and then style. Not only will your hair feel strong, but it will feel smoother than ever too!
