Some benefits of Jojoba oil are:
1. Skin Moisturising:
Jojoba oil is a strong moisturiser as when applied to the skin, it absorbs in the skin as much as the way the natural sebum (glands excretion) does. Jojoba is well suited for every type of skin, including dry, oily or normal skin. Jojoba oil is used in a number of cosmetics and can be applied on wrinkles or scratch marks.
2. Skin Cleanser:
Jojoba oil is quite similar in properties to sebum and it does not clog in the skin pores. So it is easy to cleanse the skin with Jojoba oil. It can be applied as a makeup remover without the skin getting dry. Just apply the oil drops on a cotton bud and swipe on the skin.
3. Hair Oil:
Jojoba oil is very versatile in its functioning. For frizzy and rough hair, apply the Jojoba oil and it will hydrate and moisturise the hair roots and hence it helps in making the hair strong and smooth. It can also be used as beard oil. Jojoba oil is used as an ingredient in several hair conditioners.
4. Sunburn Treatment:
Using oil on a Sunburn skin is not a favourable idea, as the oil blocks the skin pores and traps the heat inside the skin, but Jojoba oil is beneficial in this case, as it does not clog inside the pores of skin and provides healing effects. Jojoba oil contains Vitamin E, which heals the Sunburn skin.
5. Acne Treatment:
One of the main causes of Acne is the clogging of oils and dirt particles in the skin pores. So, the Jojoba oil helps to remove the trapped dirt particles and oil from the skin pores. The oil also has key minerals, which help the skin healing from the Acne as well as the scar scratches etc.
6. Massage Oil:
Normally, some oils provide resistance when we rub them on the skin as massage oil and hence it causes burn and rash. So the Jojoba oil is quite smooth and provides no resistance to the skin and it also have relaxing effects; hence it is used as massage oil.
7. Lip Balm:
Due to its moisturising effects, Jojoba oil is an ingredient in homemade lip balms. When the lips rupture, applying Jojoba oil provides healing effects.
Jojoba oil has Vitamin E as an essential ingredient, which works with the skin as an antioxidant. So the Jojoba oil helps to fight the oxidative stresses caused by the exposure of skin to pollution and smoke.
