How to Use Jojoba Oil on Your Face
When applied topically jojoba oil forms barriers over skin protecting it from infection causing bacteria and moistures skin. Spirit Demerson (beauty expert) of Spiritbeautylounge.com says jojoba oil tricks the skin to produce less sebum. Eventually it treats acne scars and breakouts. She recommends going for only 100% pure jojoba oil.
For people with dry skin, she suggests to apply this innate oil right after shower when the skin is still damp. This keeps your skin moist for longer time. Applying excess jojoba liquid wax may make your skin oily, so take no more than 6 drops of undiluted oil. You can also add it with any aromatic essential oil or moisturizer. And if you’ve your own facial regimen then include this natural oil as an ingredient. It does wonders on your face. (For jojoba oil face mask, click here)
