The oil from the seeds of the desert shrub Jojoba has found numerous uses since a very long time. The uniqueness of Jojoba lies in the fact that its molecular structure matches that of the hair and skin oil (sebum). Thus, it renders a perfect oil balance in the skin. Considering the busy and chaotic lives these days, a few drops of Jojoba oil can be the perfect beauty regime for you. Here are 5 ways in which you can benefit from the use of jojoba oil.
1. Complete skin care
Jojoba oil can work as the best moisturizer for your skin. No wonder it tops the popularity charts in the Beauty world. While a drop or two is perfect for your face, it will work best as a body moisturizer, if you apply it right after you take a shower. This will leave your skin soft and smooth for the rest of the day. Also, a few drops of the oil, followed by water can be a great way to cleanse your skin.
2. Lip balm
Jojoba oil can provide a solution for chapped lips. Being quickly absorbed by the skin and lips, it successfully removes all the flakes and prevents ageing in the long run. All in all, it serves as an excellent overnight treatment.
3. Super hair care
For strong, shiny and healthy hair, all you need to do is: mix a few drops of Jojoba to your conditioner. Besides, if you want to blow dry or straighten your hair, but are scared of the heat-damage and the increasing split ends, simply add a drop or so of the oil to the ends of your hair before the heat treatment.
Also, the oil on your hair ends will get rid of crazy frizzy hair and give you soft, shiny and strong hair. Regular hot Jojoba oil treatment will help you maintain your wonderful, strong hair. Also, for all you swimmers and beach lovers, make sure you dab a few drops of the oil onto your hair before you dive in. It is the best bet to prevent harmful chemicals from damaging your hair.
4. Make-Up Remover
Its non allergenic and non-irritant properties make Jojoba a make-up remover. Dabbing Jojoba oil beneath your shaving cream can prevent razor burns.
5. Perfect Massage Oil
Lastly, if you are tired and craving for a body massage, make sure your therapist or masseuse uses Jojoba. It will give you a soft and supple skin.
