3 ways jojoba oil can help skin

3 ways jojoba oil can help skin
  • favoris

A popular naturally occurring skincare ingredient, jojoba oil isn’t just great for nourishing skin. It’s also a great makeup remover, as well as an anti-inflammatory. Read on to find out more.

1 - Jojoba oil: nature’s makeup remover


Many women use jojoba oil as a makeup remover thanks to its silky texture. Pure jojoba oil is also non-comedogenic, making it an ideal cleanser for oily or imperfection-prone skin.[1]

2 - Jojoba oil: ideal for inflamed skin


As well as acting as a great natural cleanser, jojoba oil has also been shown to help with wound healing and skin recovery[2].
Research indicates that when applied to scratch wounds in its liquid-wax form, jojoba oil has a positive impact on the skin’s ability to deal with inflammation[3].
Intriguingly, the same study also found that jojoba wax has the potential to stimulate collagen production, making it ideal for helping to soothe small cuts and grazes.

3 - Jojoba oil: an excellent skin nourisher


Jojoba oil is packed with complex fatty acids, making it a great moisturizer for skin prone to dryness. The reason for this? As well as these fatty acids and nutrients, jojoba oil’s natural texture mimics that of sebum - the oils naturally produced by our skin to keep it hydrated. Studies have shown that when combined with glycerin - another extremely effective moisturizer - jojoba oil has the potential to improve skin’s moisture levels for up to 24 hours by preventing dehydration.[4] Jojoba is also a great natural emollient, trapping water within the skin by forming a protective layer across the epidermis.
