Let me tell you about one of my most favorite things…jojoba oil. Natural jojoba oil (pronounced hoho-ba) is an incredible oil that is so skin-loving. It is good for so many things, including skin, hair and nails. It is a healthy ingredient that is 100% natural and 100% fantastic.
I have been using skin care products made with jojoba oil for over a year now and just love it. I have combination to oily skin – the thought of putting oil on my face sounded counterproductive to me. Adding oil to my already oily face? But surprisingly, it’s not oily at all. It penetrates deep into the skin with absolutely no greasy feel. It’s pretty amazing.
So, here’s the low down on jojoba oil and why it is good…it’s all natural of course, which is great. It is non-comedogenic and non-allergenic, so no clogged or blocked pores. And that means less chance of breakouts. It is an antioxidant that protects against free radicals. It mimics our skin’s natural oils, working to balance, soften and hydrate for a younger look.
I use The Jojoba Company’s Absolute Serum and Cucumber and Guava Firming Eye Balm. I apply the serum in the morning. It feels silky and fresh and has anti-agers that fight off my wrinkles. I use the eye balm, which is really more of a cream, day and night. It helps reduce my puffiness and fine lines. I recently added the Intense Overnight Renewal Cream into my routine. It has marine collagen and CoQ10 along with jojoba and is another weapon in keeping my skin nourished and healthy.
If you’re curious about jojoba oil, now is the perfect time to try it. With any purchase from The Jojoba Company line, you get a free 15ml bottle of 100% Natural Ultimate Jojoba Youth Potion.
