Jojoba Oil (Not just a moisturizer)
Moisturizer – Because jojoba oil closely resembles human sebum, our skin accepts it very well without threat of breakouts or reactions. If you have oily or combination skin and are afraid of putting any oil on your face, rest easy. Jojoba oil actually helps to balance skin’s sebum, so it moisturizes dry skins and eases the oil production in oily skin. Apply jojoba oil by mixing two drops of it in your moisturizer, or use it sparingly on its own.
Make-up remover – Jojoba oil is not an eye irritant, nor allergenic, so you can use it to remove eye makeup. Soak a cotton pad or ball, and swipe over your eye shadow, liner, and mascara. Not only will your eye makeup be gently and completely removed, you’ll find your lashes lush and conditioned, too.
Cleansing Oil – Another soaked cotton ball will easily dissolve your blush, foundation, and lipstick. To remove oil completely, use a damp tissue or washcloth.
Lip balm – Put a few drops of jojoba oil on your finger and apply to your lips. Lots of lip balms used today tend to clog the pores with comedogenic ingredients, so jojoba oil is a good alternative.
Hair conditioner – Mix a few drops of jojoba oil into your current hair conditioner or use it on its own. You can also add it to damp hair before it dries. You can massage a few drops onto dry hair to promote shine. Jojoba oil moisturizes the scalp, helping to prevent dandruff. The jojoba oil also strengthens the hair and heals split ends.
Shave Preparation – Put a generous amount of jojoba oil on your beard area beneath the shaving cream or use it on its own. The jojoba oil will help prevent razor burn and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft.
Massage Oil – A little jojoba oil goes a long way in massage. It also will prevent breakouts that other massage oils can cause. It softens the skin, helps to clear stretch marks, and will help those suffering from eczema or psoriasis.
Cuticle Oil – A small amount of jojoba oil, rubbed into the cuticles on a regular basis helps keep them soft and strengthened.
How you can use jojoba oil: As a leave-in conditioner, place a small amount in your hair, rub your hands together and wipe the oil though your hair. You can either leave it in or wash it out with a mild shampoo. You can also add 2 tbsp. of jojoba oil into the bottle of your favorite shampoo.
