Jojoba is rich in beneficial ingredients which are amazing for a number of problem areas on your body…read on to learn more about the health benefits of Jojoba oil and the 5 ways in which your body can recover from minor irritations with it’s help.
Makeup remover: Treat your skin as it needs to be treated by using an all natural makeup remover. Jojoba oil is non-greasy and unlike many commercially sold makeup removers it is free from harsh perfumes. You need only a few drops on a cotton ball to successfully remove even the thickest of makeup and without dragging or rubbing. It won’t cause breakouts because it won’t clog your pores so your skin will benefit from being clean and makeup free and there will be no nasty residue left over.
Moisturizer: For your face and for your body Jojoba oil makes a great moisturizer and will nourish your skin and calm dry or flaky patches down. Massage it into your driest areas straight after a shower when your skin is still moist and if you make a habit of this, within a week you will notice a huge difference in softness and flexibility.
Deep conditioning treatment: If your hair is dry due to over processing or regular dye applications, then use Jojoba oil as a recovery aid. Dampen your hair and then apply a blob of oil and massage it in… leave it to work over an hour before washing out…you’ll find your hair is softer and shiner than ever.
Hand and foot treatment: Massage Jojoba oil into your hands and feet, pop on some socks and some cotton gloves and relax for an hour; when you remove them the oil will have conditioned your skin and nails.
Lip conditioner: Use Jojoba oil instead of thick, greasy lip balms…in the winter or summer months it will moisturize and protect at the same time.
Natural oils are pure and free from chemicals….and chemicals are often the cause of sensitive or red skin. Don’t use over the counter treatments unless you must. All-natural Jojoba oil can perform so many miracles on the health of your skin, hair and nails that it really is a wonder-oil!
Jojoba oil is inexpensive and you know there are nothing but natural ingredients in it; give it a try…your body will thank you for it and you should see an improvement in your problem areas with a week or two.
