Jojoba oil isn’t really an oil at all it’s actually a type of liquid wax. The substance is very similar to oil in human skin, also called sebum. It may seem counter intuitive to smear oil on your face, especially if you’re prone to breakouts, but jojoba might actually make greasy skin better. Jojoba oil moisturizes skin all day, so it’s ideal for dry faces, too. Jojoba is very mild, and you can apply it directly to your face. It also mixes well with other oils, such as grape seed or tea tree oil.
