product of the week

This week's product of the week is another skincare favorite, jojoba oil! A lot of people are under the assumption that if you put oil on your face you are going to break out, and it will do more harm that good. The reality is oil can be amazing for your skin. Of course you want to be mindful of what you are putting on your skin, I wouldn't suggest using just any oil on your face, but you can rest assured that jojoba oil carries many benefits for your skin, hair, and body!

One of the most fascinating facts about jojoba oil is that it is one of the few oils that actually mimics that natural oils that our skin produces, which is called sebum. Is your skin feeling really dry? Use jojoba oil! Is your skin really oily? Use jojoba oil! Jojoba oil helps to regulate the sebum your body is producing, making it a very versatile product depending on what your skin is needing.

Here are some other benefits of using jojoba oil:
-deeply moisturizing, great for eczema and dry skin
-anti-aging, helps fade fine lines and wrinkles
-anti-acnegenic, won't clog your pores
-a natural source of vitamin E which can help to soothe burns, rashes, cuts, etc.
-helps to fade and heal scars
-can be used as a moisturizing hair treatment
Jojoba oil can be used on it's own or it can be used as a "carrier oil" meaning you can use it in conjunction with essential oils to dilute them and make them safe to put directly on your face or body. Most nights I use rosehip oil on my face, and I love using jojoba oil on my neck and decolletage. On nights when my skin is especially irritated or dry then I will use jojoba oil on my face as well.  I also make a great facial spray that I love to travel with using jojoba oil. Check out how I make it here!

The brand I use is from the company NOW, they offer a high quality oil at an affordable price! If you check out this product be sure to let me know what you think! I am sure you will love it 💛
