7 Ways to Use Jojoba Oil

By Yumi Sakugawa, Intent

Being mildly obsessed with all things DIY beauty, I am always on the hunt for Do-It-Yourself beauty tips and tricks that are 100 percent natural, easy to do, and way cheaper than the store-brought equivalent. Using one parts apple cider vinegar and water as a natural facial toner? Check. Lemon juice as an acne-fighting facial mask? Check. Olive oil for pretty much… everything? Check!

My new favorite DIY beauty product is jojoba oil. Sold at Trader Joe’s, most natural health food stores, some drug stores and online, jojoba oil is a pure and natural plant extract produced in the seed of the jojoba tree that is native to Southern Arizona, Southern California and Northern Mexico.

Though this botanical liquid extract is commonly referred to as “oil,” jojoba oil is technically a liquid wax ester that is very similar to the properties of human skin oil (sebum).

Translation: putting jojoba oil on your face, especially if you are prone to oily to combo skin, means that you can “trick” your human skin into producing less oil, thus reducing your face’s shiny appearance without extra layers of make-up that can further aggravate your sensitive skin.

In addition to helping your face with oil control, jojoba oil can also be used for your hair and the rest of the body. Here are 7 common uses of jojoba oil:

I have found that jojoba oil works great for me as a facial moisturizer. I stopped using some of the other pricey facial products such as Proactive and Dermalogica, and just started using more natural ingredients such as raw honey as a facial wash and jojoba oil as a moisturizer! My skin is LOVING it.

Jojoba oil is probably the best way to get rid of oily skin by stopping sebum production. If you want to read more check out the article http://acne-pimples.net/ it's titled "Jojoba Oil For Acne: Softer Skin Today"

I use jojoba that I get from this website www.purejojoba.com. It is organic, which is important to me, because I've gotten some oil from other places and it was cloudy and smelled weird. But yah this is the best jojoba oil I have come across.
