Skincare Benefits of Jojoba Oil: 10 Things to Expect

Jojoba oil is made from a perennial plant native to North America. The plant has some pretty impressive characteristics. Hear what “Healthline” says “jojoba oil doesn’t just thrive in a harsh desert climate that could kill most living things, but it also produces nuts with many healing properties.” Impressive, don’t you think? Is it then any wonder that people now go for jojoba as part of their skincare routine?

You can start using it too, if you haven’t already. Here are 10 benefits of jojoba oil to the skin that make it so much sought for.

1. Moisturizer

Humectants help to seal in moisture into the skin. They provide your skin’s protective barrier with what it needs to keep it from losing moisture. And jojoba oil happens to be a humectant. If you have a dry skin, you should try it out.

2. Antibacterial

Jojoba oil’s antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it an efficient killer of certain bacteria and fungi that can lead to infections like Escherichia coli infection, salmonella, and candida (source: “Healthline”).

3. Antioxidant

Jojoba oil contains vitamin E, an essential nutrient the skin needs to fight oxidative stress caused by daily exposure to toxic substances and pollutants.

4. Hypoallergenic

Jojoba oil’s hypoallergenic nature makes it suitable on hypersensitive skin. It also makes it gentle and safe enough for everyday use. It sooths the skin and can be used to calm symptoms of allergic reactions.

5. Non-comedogenic

Jojoba oil contains ingredients that mimic sebum on the skin. That means it tricks the skin into not producing more oil. It mimic oil but it is not oil, and that means there won’t be a case of clogged pores or oil buildup on skin. Good news for oily skin!

6. Sebum Production Regulator

Because it mimics skin oil, the sebaceous glands receive the signal to stop producing oil because there’s already enough. As a result, you skin is preserved from appearing too oily and from more serious skin conditions like acne.

7. Collagen Production

The skin produces collagen; it is a protein that provides the skin with elasticity. As we grow older, collagen production reduces. Jojoba oil’s antioxidant property aids the skin into producing collagen. This stalls the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of old age.

8. Wound Healing

Jojoba oil contains vitamin E which helps improve your skin’s connective tissues thereby helping split cells to bind together once again after the have been separated by an injury. This also makes it effective in treating acne.

9. Soothing Balm

Jojoba oil helps sooth skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis caused by dryness via its anti-inflammatory properties. Applying regularly can bring an end to itchiness, flaking, dryness, and other symptoms.

10. Sun Damage Protection

Its antioxidant properties combine with vitamin E and provide the skin with a protective barrier against sun damage.
