What is Jojoba oil?
Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) oil is a waxy substance extracted from the Simmondsia chinensis plant, which is native to southern Arizona, southern California, and Northwestern Mexico. Due to its hydrating properties and jojoba oil benefits it has gained great popularity in the cosmetic and skincare industry and is found in many lotions, creams, and hair care products. Read all about using jojoba oil for skin & body care, hair nourishment, acne prevention, and even scar healing in this informative post all about the Amazing Benefits of Jojoba Oil.
Benefits of Jojoba Oil
Although jojoba oil may be best known as a remedy for dry skin, it does so much more! Read more to learn about the benefits of jojoba oil for your skin.
As you age, fine lines and wrinkles emerge on your face. Crow’s feet, laugh lines, lip lines and those infamous elevens between your eyes all seem to take over what was once such a youthful looking face. This is due to a loss of collagen and increased damage to skin cells. Below the skin lies a protein called collagen which plumps up the skin. As you age, collagen naturally begins to decrease and as a result, your skin begins to sag and wrinkle. What is the miracle that can increase the production of collagen? You guessed it – jojoba oil! By increasing collagen, jojoba oil keeps your skin looking and feeling firm and supple. Also incredibly hydrating, jojoba oil makes your skin glow, making you look fresh and young.
Another benefit of jojoba oil for your skin – it is an excellent choice for battling acne. Not only is it non comedogenic, which means it will not clog your pores, jojoba oil regulates sebum production. This keeps skin from looking oily and helps prevent breakouts.
Reduces appearance of scars and accelerates healing
Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory agents and healing properties. The Vitamin E present in jojoba oil helps to fade scars from acne or other injuries. This also accelerates the healing process for sunburns, eczema, and psoriasis. Have a cold sore? Smear on some jojoba oil. Jojoba contains docosanol, which is an ingredient in common drug store cold sore ointments.
Jojoba oil has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin, taking other active ingredients with it. Pairing it with retinol, serums, and moisturizers will allow them to reach the deeper layers of your skin, allowing them to work their wonders!
Who should use jojoba oil? Jojoba oil for skin care?
If you want beautiful, healthy, glowing and smooth skin you should use jojoba oil! Do you suffer from acne, eczema, psoriasis, or other skin conditions? Is your skin dry and faded? You should use jojoba oil! This little treasure may very well become your skin’s best friend.
Maritime Naturals, making this easy for you: A Beautiful Skincare Routine
Maritime Naturals is happy to offer some best practices for youthful and amazing looking skin, using products that maximize jojoba oil.
Begin and end your day with a clean face. Cleansing in the morning clears away toxins, dead skin cells and excess oils that may occur as you sleep. Cleansing at night will remove makeup, sweat, impurities in the environment, and unwanted skin cells from your face. This cleansing boosts hydration and prepares the face to be receptive to the rest of the skincare routine. We recommend Maritime Naturals Vitamin C Cleanser.
Next, apply Maritime Naturals Vitamin C Serum. This serum is thin and will penetrate deeply into the skin where it can do the most good. It works wonderfully for specific concerns like acne, dry skin, dullness, and wrinkles. This L-ascorbic acid serum also contains jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E – an excellent antioxidant combination.
Because retinol is known as a powerhouse in anti-aging and supports your skin’s elasticity, add Maritime Naturals Retinol Serum into your routine. Apply after the Vitamin C Serum.
Serum and moisturizer should be used in combination with each other. The rule of thumb is to always follow your serum with moisturizer. Maritime Naturals Retinol Moisturizer is a best seller. This anti-aging moisturizer is formulated with retinol to improve elasticity, giving you radiant, youthful, plump skin. This anti-wrinkle pH balanced hydrating formula includes ingredients such as jojoba oil, shea butter, vitamin E and loads of unique active botanicals to promote firmness.
Using Maritime Naturals Exfoliating Face Scrub 2-3 times per week is also a great way to keep your skin looking bright and refreshed. This advanced formula is made with jojoba, shea butter, avocado, grapeseed and vitamin E.
Finally, and most importantly, use a good quality sunscreen. This is your BEST defence against slowing down the aging process.
Tip: Many of these products can be purchased in a bundle. If you are just starting out and wishing to begin building this routine, we recommend starting with Maritime Naturals Best Selling Trio of Cleanser, Vitamin C Serum, and Retinol Moisturizer.
