Beauty oils are under spotlight! From essential oils to hair and face oils, they are everywhere! While we might have found our favourite oil, there’s always a new product grabbing limelight. Today, let’s talk about this multi-purpose, skin-loving beauty oil that’s created enough buzz in the industry—Jojoba oil.
Derived from the Jojoba seeds, it has long shelf-life and resistance to high temperatures. Jojoba oil has been long used as one of the ingredients in skin and hair care products but it can also be used by itself. It is regarded as a wonder oil for both, hair and skin.
Here’s why you should consider including it in your skincare routine:
Emollient For Dry Skin And Hair: Jojoba oil keeps the skin nourished as it balances the body’s natural oil production by acting like its natural oil. Also, the fatty acids present in it act as a treatment for dry hair. Just massage onto dry strands and leave it overnight.
It Is Non-Comedogenic: This property is a blessing for those whose skin is prone to breakouts. Non-comedogenic means the product doesn’t block the skin pores which causes pimples and blackheads. While you may love face oils and elixirs for the natural sheen they give, not all of them are non-comedogenic. Jojoba oil’s composition is the same as skin’s sebum, thus it doesn’t clog pores.
Promotes Hair Growth: Jojoba oil is a rich source of vitamin B and E which promotes hair growth and thickness. It also contains zinc and copper which help boost hair growth preventing hair fall.
With Anti-Ageing And Antibacterial Properties: As mentioned above, it contains vitamin B and E. While former helps fight free radicals, latter helps boost collagen production in the skin making it a good anti-ageing product.Moreover, it has high amount of iodine that fights pimple-causing bacteria on skin preventing breakouts and acne.
Boosts Skin Glow: The skin starts to look dull when dehydrated and jojoba oil is a good source of hydration. When the skin is properly hydrated, the glow comes up naturally. Add it to your AM and PM skincare routine after cleansing or mix a few drops with your regular face moisturiser.
