When it comes to choosing beauty products, it can be quite a hassle, especially with the wide variety available out there. Oils, in general, are easy to use. Just apply one or two drops onto the skin and you are good to go.
But do you know which oils are good for your skin? Now, that’s tough! Worry not, here is a guide to break down the nitty-gritty details on skincare, particularly related to Jojoba oil.
Suitable for all skin types, this peculiar oil has a special property – its wax ester! In other words, it is able to replicate the skin’s sebum and helps in balancing your complexion.
With this ability, it can either add more sebum to your skin when necessary or slow down the production when the skin does not require extra sebum. This, in turn, maximises nourishment as this oil is able to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. It can also complement other active ingredients, such as retinol to be better absorbed into the skin.
Rich in antioxidants, fatty acid, and vitamins A, E and D, Jojoba oil is able to help with the following skin concerns:
- Mild acne:
Acne breakouts occur when the skin is stripped from its natural sebum from causes, such as using a cleanser that is not pH balanced. This makes the glands go into overdrive, which causes an overproduction of oil to be formed. This may lead to more facial cleansing sessions, causing skin sensitivity, resulting in unwanted acne breakouts.
Jojoba oil can help as it can act as an antioxidant and protect the skin from an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body. It also has antimicrobial properties that can stop the growth or kill the microorganisms.

- Sun damage:
UV rays from the sun can cause your skin to be dehydrated and flaking. Jojoba oil can add moisture to your skin while restoring vitamin E. It also soothes the skin from sunburns.
