Let’s get straight to it. Jojoba oil is a natural oil that has *so* many benefits for your skin. Never heard of this miracle oil? Here’s the lowdown.
What is jojoba oil?
Jojoba oil comes from the seed of the jojoba plant that’s located in the Southwest region of the United States and the northern regions of Mexico. It’s been used to heal skin wounds and sores since the dawn of time. (Sort of. I mean, we’re skincare experts, not history buffs! But it has been a medicinal ointment for a really long time.)
If you're new to using oils on your skin, you might be afraid of adding oil to oily skin. Maybe you're worried that jojoba oil will make you break out. Don’t fret—that’s not the case. Here’s the scoop on why jojoba oil should show up in your skincare routine (whether your skin is dry or oily).
Let’s get down to business: What are the jojoba oil benefits?
One of the biggest reasons jojoba oil is beneficial for your skin is the fact that it closely resembles sebum. Sebum is a substance that we produce all on our own with the help of our skin glands—but sometimes we need an extra boost. Jojoba oil’s waxy qualities make it a natural conditioner for your skin. Doesn’t nature rock?
That’s not all. Jojoba oil contains antioxidants like Vitamin E and B, as well as iodine. The antioxidants help soothe wrinkles by slowing down the natural process of aging.
Let’s not forget the iodine. It helps combat harmful bacteria that would lead to breakups and oily skin. Plus, jojoba oil has antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. That makes it extremely helpful for speeding up the healing process for minor wounds and sores.
Oh, did we mention that the oil is hypoallergenic? Jojoba oil is a multitasking machine.
What about jojoba oil for acne?
Due to all of the benefits listed above, you might’ve gathered that jojoba oil can be used for acne treatment. Thanks to its heavy concentration of iodine, close resemblance to sebum, and anti-inflammatory elements, you might consider trying skincare products with jojoba oil for acne treatment.
Because of its sebum-like qualities, jojoba oil helps convince your skin that it’s produced enough oil. Oftentimes, too much oil production causes acne. Jojoba oil is a natural ingredient that can help control oil production and reduce breakouts.
