Another fad beauty product you say? Nope! Not this time.
Oils are great all year round but they are an even greater addition to your winter skincare routine. During the colder months, our skin is exposed to artificial heating and cold dry air so here is everything you need to know about this “Ancient super ingredient,” says Vicki Engsall, co-founder of The Jojoba Company.
What is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil is an “Ancient super ingredient which has been 200 years in the making,” says Vicki Engsall. Jojoba oil is extracted from the jojoba bean, being the only plant to store liquid wax in its seed while sharing “The same molecular structure as the natural oils found in healthy human skin.”
Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t block our pores but “Helps to balance oil production and encourages the skin to behave as it was always designed to do,” says Tammy Green, founder of Press Beauty.
How Does It Work?
As jojoba oil shares the same molecular structure as the naturally produced oils in our skin, it is “Able to activate your skin’s natural intelligence to allow the skin to help itself,” says Vicki.
Jojoba oil is sebum balancing oil, packed full of antioxidants, omegas 6 and 9, and Vitamins A, D and E.
What Skin Type Is It Best Suited To?
Jojoba oil is suitable for all skin types or any skin concern “It is able to help the skin to help itself with anything that is going on,” adds Vicki, whatever your concern may be, dry, oily, or sensitive skin.
“Jojoba oil has been shown to improve acne, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, irritation and dryness,” says Tammy Green.
If you have very sensitive skin or are new to facial oils Tammy Green “Highly recommends trying Mr. Rose and seeing how it can benefit what is typically very inflamed, unbalanced skin.”
When In Our Routine Do We Use It?
We always recommend going from thinnest to thickest, in this case, jojoba oil is to be used “After cleansing and serum and before moisturising,” adds Vicki.
“Jojoba is a multi-tasking product that can be used in so many different ways.”
Vicki recommends adding it to your moisturiser, even your shampoo or conditioner for added moisturisation benefits or to your foundation for extra glow.
How Often Should We Use It?
“Either morning and night, or just at night. We recommend using as a preventative treatment to keep your skin looking balanced and healthy all year round,” recommends Tammy Green.
