Jojoba Oil For Gorgeous Skin and 6 Ways To Use It

jojoba oil in glass jar with yellow flower - jojoba oil for gorgeous skin

Jojoba oil (pronounced ho ho ba) is a natural beauty and anti-aging skin care ingredient suitable for all skin types with many benefits for our gorgeous selves.

Updated 3-2021

You can look for jojoba oil in already prepared beauty products, or you can use it straight away, right out of the bottle.

I add it to our Jojoba Creme Scrub because it helps:

  • to promote skin suppleness and elasticity

  • to prevent skin dehydration

  • to balance oil (sebum) production of the skin

  • it's anti-bacterial
  • it's an anti-oxidant

Actually, It's Not Really An Oil

Jojoba oil  is not an oil, but a liquid wax ester.

It closely resembles that of our own skins natural oil (sebum), and so has a natural affinity to the skin, thus easily penetrating without feeling greasy or tacky.

It is also non-comedogenic. 

Since it is non-greasy & non-comedogenic, it is well tolerated by those with acne and it can break down sebum in already clogged pores.

Ways to use Jojoba Oil (Olive oil can be used in much the same way)

  1. Eye makeup remover - dampen a cotton pad (to avoid cotton fibers from going into your eyes as well as preventing the pad from soaking up too much oil), add oil to pad and swipe across eyelids, and massage into eye lashes gently to remove mascara. Alternatively, if you love a non-oily eye makeup remover, our 3 in One Wash Away is a wonder. 

  2. Face makeup remover - same as above, swiping across face and throat to remove facial makeup. Follow with a gentle cleanser. Removing your makeup is NOT the same as cleansing your facial skin. 

  3. Body lotion - pour a few drops into moist hands and massage over body damp, just out of the shower skin (exfoliate first for best results).

  4. Hair heat protectant & conditioner - add a few drops to the palm of your hands and massage into the ends of your hair before blow drying to protect your tresses. Be sure not to use too much, just enough to penetrate the hair shaft and condition.

  5. Nail cuticle conditioner - pour oil into a small dish or bowl, dip fingers into it while relaxing. Let them soak for several minutes while your nails and your cuticles become deeply softened.

  6. Shave creme - pour into hands and massage onto legs for a lovely, smooth shave.

Jojoba oil; a superb multi-tasking, long-lasting, stable oil, good for all skin types, oily, mature, dehydrated and even balanced.

Jojoba oil is a staple for everyone to enjoy.
