Then read on because we’ve gathered our favourite jojoba-infused essentials just for you!

The amazing beauty benefits of jojoba oil

The jojoba plant thrives in hot and harsh climates

First, let’s take a closer look at the beauty benefits of jojoba oil. Since it is chemically similar to our natural sebum, it is non-comedogenic and is unlikely to clog our pores after use. Because of its humectant and waxy nature, it is able to form a protective layer on our skin and hair to lock moisture in place. This in turn gives your skin and hair a healthy sheen and helps to keep frizz at bay. In addition to being hypoallergenic, jojoba oil also has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties to combat acne-causing bacteria and skin infections.

How to apply it onto your skin and hair

2 to 3 drops are all you need for your face and neck

The best way to apply a jojoba oil onto your skin is right after your shower when your skin is still slightly damp. This helps to lock in any moisture while preventing transepidermal water loss. 2 to 3 drops are all you need for your entire face and neck. On the other hand, you can be a little more generous when it comes to applying it onto your hair. This is because the oil will act as a protective barrier to prevent moisture in the air from getting into the hair and causing frizz. Besides applying it onto your skin and hair, you can also use jojoba oil as an intensive lip or nail treatment.
