5 ways to use jojoba oil for beautiful skin

If you’ve been searching high and low for a magical skincare ingredient to restore your skin’s natural beauty, you might want to include jojoba oil in your daily routine. Apart from the numerous benefits it has for your skin, it’s completely versatile and can be used for your hair too. Double win! Consider it the skin care superhero you never knew you needed. Whilst there may be an abundance of beauty oils out there that all promise the same results, there’s something extra special about jojoba oil.

Jojoba oil comes from the seeds of a perennial jojoba plant native to North America. The seeds are cold-pressed and oil is extracted from the seed. Unrefined jojoba oil is gold in colour with a slight nutty scent, whilst refined jojoba oil is colourless and odourless. Since the 18th century, jojoba oil has been used as ‘medication’ to treat and protect skin and hair.

Considering adding jojoba oil to your beauty regime? Here are our top five ways to use jojoba oil to achieve healthy, beautiful skin.

Face and body moisturiser

One of the major benefits of jojoba oil is its intense moisturising abilities. If you have dry, dull and flaky skin, jojoba oil creams and lotions will become your new BFF. It’s been said that jojoba oil can mimic our skin’s natural oils and balance out our skin’s natural oil (sebum) production.

Face and body creams infused with jojoba oil are your gateway to healthy, supple skin. Dawn’s Special Musk & Jojoba Oil Body Cream is specially formulated to hydrate and revive your skin to give you that natural, beautiful glow you’ve been searching for. Thanks to the rich benefits of jojoba oil, our body cream delivers up to 48 hours of moisturisation, leaving you with irresistible silky-smooth skin.

 

Makeup Remover

It’s time to throw out those overpriced makeup removers and make way for jojoba oil. There are no side effects to applying jojoba oil directly onto your skin as it is a naturally safe ingredient. It is also non comedogenic, meaning that the oil is highly unlikely to clog your pores. So, you are less likely to breakout in spots or acne caused by clogged pores

Acne Treatment

Acne is caused by a variety of factors. Be it genetics, diet, environmental or puberty, suffering with acne can push our self-esteem levels to an all-time low. Lightly dab jojoba oil onto your acne or pimples and allow it to absorb into your skin. It has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which can help soothe skin. Jojoba oil is also rich in antioxidants, so it can help fight off oxidative stress caused by things like air pollution.


Cleanser

Another fantastic benefit of using jojoba oil-infused cleansers is that it controls the amount of sebum production. Our skin produces oils naturally and sometimes, too much of that sebum can clog the pores, which leads to breakouts. Washing your face with jojoba oil not only provides the added benefit of hydration, it also helps regulate oil production. 


Face Mask and Scrub

Why not take jojoba oil to another level by creating face masks and body scrubs? DIY scrubs are super easy and simple to make. Take two tablespoons of sugar, add about two tablespoons of jojoba oil and a splash of honey and voila, your very own homemade body scrub. It is perfectly safe to use directly on skin however, if you have sensitive skin, you might experience side effects to using jojoba oil such as skin irritation, redness, and hives.

Always conduct a patch test before using a new product. Even though jojoba oil is considered safe for all skin types, if you experience any irritation, it’s best to stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist.
