Jojoba oil can be your beauty secret. Rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins, jojoba oil is indeed an elixir for your nails, hair and skin.
This product is actually a liquid wax obtained from jojoba seeds although it is most commonly known under the name of oil.
Let’s see some of its benefits for beauty, and why you should use it every day.
1. Maintains Your Skin Elasticity
Jojoba oil is excellent for maintaining your skin elasticity. With age, your body produces less and less collagen and elastin that causes the skin to lose its firmness.
Jojoba oil is rich in Vitamin E thus preventing the loss of skin elasticity, especially when it is applied regularly on the skin.
2. Softens and Moisturizes Your Skin
Jojoba oil can also be used as body lotion. After each shower, massage jojoba oil on your skin and you will notice that after a few days it will become smoother and brighter. Once applied, jojoba oil moisturizes the skin down to the deeper layers of them.
3. Treat Acne
Jojoba oil seems to have been designed specifically to treat this skin condition, although it is well known that acne does not respond very well to all kinds of oil.
The explanation is in fact, very simple: Jojoba oil has a composition similar to naturally sebum produced by the sebaceous glands of your skin (sebum is composed of mono wax, like jojoba oil). Once applied to the skin, this amazing oil tricks the sebaceous glands and inhibits the excessive production of sebum that causes acne.
4. Strengthens Your Nails
If you have brittle nails that easily exfoliate, use every two days, a few drops of jojoba oil. Rub oil on your nails after you previously soaked them in warm water.
5. It Is an Excellent Cleanser
Often the cleansers that you buy in the store contain chemicals that can irritate your eyes and even the facial skin. Jojoba oil does not irritate the skin, is non-toxic and non-allergenic. Therefore, you can safely use it as a normal cleanser, including the eyes. After cleansing, your skin will be soft and deep cleaning without having an oily texture.
6. Helps Your Hair to Grow
Use jojoba oil if you want your hair to grow faster, be more resistant and shine. You can use a specific solution prepared by you:
- – 4-5 tsp of jojoba oil
- – 1 avocado well pressed
The solution is applied to wet or dry hair, including the scalp. For best effects, let it work all the night.
Another way that you can use jojoba oil on your hair is to heat a few tablespoons of oil and apply evenly amount the entire length of hair, and scalp. After half an hour, rinse and shampoo your hair as usual.
7. Moisturizes Your Lips
Lip membrane is so fine that it can easily peel off when the weather is cold, windy or when your body is not properly hydrated. Exfoliate your lips with a little honey mixed with granulated sugar, then apply jojoba oil as a moisturizer.
