Let’s put this rumor to rest once and for all: using skin oils won’t make your skin oily—provided that it’s the right oil. Jojoba oil is definitely the right oil. This amazing and powerful oil can help moisturize dry skin, balance oily skin, soothe sensitive skin, and even fight off acne and signs of aging.
You can find jojoba oil as a key ingredient in hair, nail, and skincare products all across the beauty aisles. It’s earned its spot as a top player in the beauty scene. Check out why we think jojoba oil is a holy grail skincare product.
What is Jojoba Oil?
Pronounced ho-ho-ba, jojoba oil comes from the jojoba plant, a bushy shrub native to the arid regions of the Southwest United States. Native Americans recognized the jojoba plant’s healing qualities early on and used it to treat sores and wounds as early as the 1400s. Modern research confirms jojoba oil’s healing properties. It can help you heal from sunburns, and help wounds heal faster. But that’s just the beginning of jojoba’s benefits.
Jojoba Oil for Skincare
Jojoba oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory. Basically, anti-everything you don’t want in your skin. There’s a reason it’s one of three ingredients we trust in our Hello Jojoba facial oil. It’s a fantastic way to promote healthy skin for all skin types. Yes, even the oily ones. Here’s why jojoba oil is a worthy addition to your skincare routine, no matter what your skin type is.
Fights Acne and Scarring
Because jojoba oil has antimicrobial properties, clinical trials have shown promise in using jojoba oil to treat acne. It’s also hypoallergenic with a naturally waxy nature, so jojoba oil is gentle and non-irritating for sensitive skin. Oh, and remember how jojoba oil can help heal wounds? That makes jojoba oil awesome for healing and fading acne scars from past breakouts.
Combats Signs of Aging
We’re all exposed to toxins in our everyday lives. Environmental pollutants, toxins, and other oxidative substances can stress out and damage your skin, causing you to look older than you actually do with sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Jojoba is a natural source of vitamin E, which works as an antioxidant in your skin. That means jojoba oil can help fight off oxidative stress and potentially reduce the appearance of aging. It’s literally a breath of fresh air for your face.
May Restore Collagen
The anti-aging benefits of jojoba oil don’t stop there. The antioxidants in jojoba oil may stimulate collagen production in your body—you know, the protein that keeps your skin looking youthful and firm. Studies have linked the antioxidants in jojoba oil to improved collagen synthesis in the skin. It’s just one of many ways jojoba oil can keep you looking young.
Moisturizes and Protects Skin
Jojoba oil is full of nourishing vitamin E, which can bring moisture and life back to your skin. It’s a natural humectant, which means that it attracts water to the top layer of your skin. It can provide the one-two punch of keeping your skin hydrated, and providing a waxy seal that prevents harmful substances from seeping beneath the surface.
Can Help with Eczema, Psoriasis, and Other Skin Conditions
Jojoba oil’s natural anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and healing properties can relieve flaky and itchy skin. That makes it ideal for anyone dealing with chronic dryness from a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis. Jojoba oil will be your new best friend.
Can Soothe Sunburns and Sun Damage
That same hydrating power can also relieve the flakiness caused by sunburns. Some studies suggest that the vitamin E and antioxidants in jojoba oil can protect your skin from sun damage. There’s a reason why it’s often used as an ingredient in natural sunscreens.
And if you’re dealing with the dryness and flakiness of a sunburn, jojoba oil’s wound-healing properties can help with that too.
Balances Oil Production
On a chemical level, jojoba oil is technically a wax. That means it won’t clog pores or cause greasiness like other oils. Jojoba oil is similar to the natural sebum your skin produces. Using it can help your skin balance its natural oil production, which can even help those with oily skin find relief.
