What is Jojoba Oil?
The image below is a jojoba plant, found in desert areas of California, Arizona and Mexico. It is a plant that can grow up to 15 feet high and the oil is pressed from the seeds/nuts that grow on the tree. Jojoba oil is not actually an oil, but a liquid wax.
Why it's Good For Your Skin
Jojoba oil is known as the oil (wax) that mostly closely resembles human sebum, so the uses and benefits to skin and hair are high.
For People with Oily Skin: Though it may sound scary to put an oil on your skin if you already have a problem with oily skin, jojoba oil can help regulate the amount of sebum (what you see as oil) your skin makes, creating less oil.
As a Moisturizer: You can use jojoba head-to-toe as a body or facial moisturizer. A little goes a long way!
As a Makeup Remover: Jojoba oil applied directly to your face on a cotton ball is a great makeup remover - especially for waterproof eye makeup.
As a Cuticle Cream: A drop of jojoba rubbed into the nail bed makes for a great moisturizing treatment for dry cuticles.
For Dry Hair: A warm oil treatment prior to washing or a bit applied to hair after washing for dry hair - jojoba oil can be used any way you'd use any other products for dry hair.
