Benefits of Jojoba Oil
Benefits of Jojoba Oil
The skin is the body’s largest organ and is constantly exposed to the harsh environment, irritants, pollutants and, pathogens, which means that it often gets inflamed, both from outside and inside. Jojoba oil can be applied to the irritated, swollen, itchy or inflamed skin, and can quickly soothe those cells, thanks to the emollient qualities of this oil’s active ingredients. It can also be used as a body oil.
Treats Chapped Lips
Jojoba oil can also be applied to chapped lips in order to bring back their moisture and give them a soft and lush look. This can be attributed to its protectant nature. You can also prepare a jojoba lip balm by mixing jojoba oil with beeswax.
If you suffer from a chronic condition, such as psoriasis, eczema or rosacea, regular use of jojoba oil can attack the underlying fungal, viral or  bacterial infection and neutralize it quickly.
Speeds up Wound Healing
For wounds, scrapes, cuts, and scratches, applying this oil (typically diluted) can help speed up the healing process, while also protecting against infection. The antioxidants found in this oil, including vitamin E, can stimulate blood flow to these areas and speed  production of healthy new cells.
Effective Makeup Remover
Being hypoallergenic, this oil can be used to remove makeup, dirt, and bacteria from the skin naturally. So, instead of using cosmetic make-up removers that are high in chemicals, switch to jojoba oil. You can also use this oil to remove eye makeup.
Protects from Sunburn
When applying jojoba oil to sunburned areas of your skin, you are placing a protective shield over the affected area, where vitamin E and B complexes can speed up the healing process  without further damage or water loss as a result of solar radiation.
Prevents Razor Burns
Jojoba oil can also be used in place of shaving creams and aftershave lotions, as it has healing and natural moisturizing properties. It also reduces the risk of cutting and scraping while shaving and gives a smooth surface to the skin.
For people worried about premature aging, including the wrinkles, age spots, and blemishes that accompany them, the antioxidant compounds in jojoba oil can increase skin elasticity, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and provide a youthful glow to your skin.
