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.

Uses of jojoba oil

Moisturizer – After dispensing any facial moisturizer onto your palm, try adding 5-6 drops of jojoba oil to make it into a super-moisturizer. Flakiness will subside and the moisturizer will have an improved feel on your skin.

Make-up remover – Since jojoba oil is not an eye irritant, nor allergenic, you can use it to remove eye makeup. It also easily removes foundation, blush, and lipstick.

Lip balm – Apply a few drops onto your finger and apply to your lips for an extra-light alternative to lip balm. Lots of lip balms tend to contain comedogenic (clogs pores) ingredients, so jojoba oil is a nice alternative. As a side note, if you need major help with dry lips, pure petroleum jelly (Vaseline) or Aquafor (petroleum jelly + mineral oil, ceresin, and lanolin alcohol) are non-comedogenic and work very well.

Hair conditioner – You can mix a few drops of jojoba oil into your current conditioner or use jojoba oil on its own in the shower.* You can also add it to damp hair before drying. Also, you can add it to dry hair to promote shine. Jojoba oil also moisturizes the scalp, helping prevent dandruff.

Shave prep – For men, put 8-10 drops or more of jojoba oil on your beard area beneath your shaving cream (lather from your cleanser or other non-comedogenic shaving cream) for a more comfortable shave. This helps prevent razor burn and leaves your skin feeling nice and soft.

Massage oil – Jojoba oil is perhaps the best massage oil on earth. A little goes a long way and for people with body acne is a welcome non-comedogenic option.
