Here's one of my favorite oils!

Jojoba oil is a very safe and natural emollient with a long list of benefits for hair, face and body. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 👩‍💻 ⁣I've read tons of studies on plant oils. And many studies have demonstrated that jojoba oil, when applied topically, mostly remain at the surface of skin, without deep penetration into the first upper layers of the stratum corneum. ⁣⁣ ⁣ However, even without penetrating deeper into the epidermis, the occlusive effect of the plant oil topical application decreases the loss of water from the stratum corneum. So there is no harm in making it a part of your daily skincare routine! And one of the biggest benefits of jojoba oil is that it is extremely stable! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ▫️It's moisturisering: Jojoba oil is a humectant ingredient. This means that it works to seal your skin with a protective barrier to keep it from losing moisture. This may help prevent bacterial infections, acne, and dandruff from forming.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It’s antibacterial: Jojoba oil contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties. While lab tests found that jojoba oil doesn’t kill all bacterial or fungal species, it does kill certain bacteria and fungi that can cause salmonella, an E. coli infection, and candida.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It’s an antioxidant: Jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E. This vitamin works with your skin as an antioxidant. This means that jojoba oil can help your skin fight oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and other toxins.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It’s noncomedogenic: Although jojoba oil is a botanical substance, its makeup is so similar to the oil (sebum) your body naturally produces that your skin can’t tell the difference.⁣ This makes it less likely to build up on your skin and clog your pores, leading to fewer breakouts and less severe acne.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It’s hypoallergenic: On a molecular level, jojoba oil is a wax. Although it can be absorbed into your skin, its waxy nature allows it to create a soothing seal on the surface.⁣ Unlike other botanical essential oils, jojoba oil is typically nonirritating. Allergic reaction is rare.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It helps control sebum production: Jojoba oil regulates sebum production because it’s so similar to the sebum that your body produces naturally.⁣ When you put jojoba oil on your skin, your skin is soothed and moisturized. This sends a signal to your hair and sweat follicles that your skin doesn’t need additional sebum for hydration.⁣ This keeps skin from looking oily and helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It may help promote collagen synthesis: The antioxidants in jojoba oil may help your body produce collagen. Collagen is a protein that’s in your skin and joints as well as the parts of your body made of cartilage.⁣ Collagen levels decrease as you get older. This is part of the reason your facial structure changes as you age. At least one study links antioxidants applied to the skin to improved collagen synthesis.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It may help soothe eczema, psoriasis, and other drying skin conditions: Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Topical application may help relieve dryness, flaking, itching, and related symptoms.⁣ People who have inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema may find jojoba oil especially beneficial.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It may help treat acne: At least one clinical trial indicates that jojoba oil can help keep acne at bay. Jojoba oil has soothing anti-inflammatory agents, healing properties, is moisturizing, and is a natural antimicrobial.⁣ These properties suggest that jojoba oil could help you avoid breakouts as well as promote healing for mild acne.⁣ ⁣ ▫️It may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Oxidative stress can be linked to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. There’s no research that links jojoba to treating wrinkles and fine lines directly, but other plant products with antioxidant properties have been shown to improve the elasticity of skin.⁣ This means that the antioxidant power of jojoba oil may help slow the signs of aging when used on your skin.⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣Let me know if you use jojoba oil in your skincare routine! 😊⁣ If you visit my Amazon shop you will find my FAVOURITE oil ♡
