Modern medical science can work wonders for health and beauty, but oftentimes the old ways still have plenty to offer. As more and more people become suspicious about the chemical nasties poured into beauty products, they’re turning to treatments with deep roots in the past.

Jojoba oil is one of these natural remedies. It comes from a plant that grows natively in the lands where California, Arizona, and Mexico meet, and has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to improve skin and hair health. What could this all-natural oil do for you?

Makeup Remover

Makeup may make you feel more attractive and confident, but it’s punishing on your skin. This is especially true if you use harsh chemical makeup removers every day. Using jojoba oil avoids that. It’s a natural cleanser and clears all traces of cosmetics without any irritation or damage.

Simply add a few drops of oil onto a cotton ball and gently rub off your makeup with small circular motions. When you’re done, the jojoba oil traces can be wiped off with a fresh cotton ball dampened with warm water.

Hair Color Protection

If you use coloring on your hair, massage in a little jojoba oil after your shower. This will help to preserve its tint, reducing the fading effects of strong sunlight or swimming pools treated with chlorine.

Dandruff Protection

Massaging jojoba into your scalp will help keep it supple and elastic, reducing the dryness and flakiness that leads to dandruff. What’s more, the gentle cleansing and antiseptic actions will help keep your hair follicles strong for full, shiny, healthy hair.

Reduces Wrinkles

Jojoba oil is packed with two vitamins, E and B complex, both of which act as powerful antioxidants. This means they work to repair the skin cell damage caused by sunlight, pollution, and the passing years.

When you apply jojoba oil to your skin, the vitamins help strengthen the epidermis, speed up cell regeneration, and improve elasticity. All of this helps to ward off wrinkles and maintain a smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Softens Chapped Skin

If you have a problem area of chapped skin on your hands, neck, or feet, jojoba oil will soften and strengthen the skin quickly and effectively. Simply massage it in generously, and leave for an hour before rinsing with warm water. Repeat every second day until you see the desired results.

Fights Fungal Infections

The oil also boasts antifungal and anti-inflammatory agents. These can reduce acne breakouts, minimize warts, treat athlete’s foot, and also help heal fungal nail infections.

Full-Body Hydration

Massaging jojoba oil into your skin before or after bathing will help it retain moisture far better than any expensive skin cream. What’s more, its non-greasy texture and appealing smell will leave you feeling totally clean and fresh.

If the beauty shelves of your local health store are filled with chemical-based products, you may wonder about the long-term effects of using them too often. If you’d like to take a more traditional approach, jojoba oil makes an ideal choice. It’s totally natural, easily available, free from side effects, and can provide remarkably good benefits for your skin and hair.

8 Skills Every Solo Female Traveler Has To Master

So you want to strike out as a solo traveler, but you’re still a little apprehensive. Maybe you haven’t traveled much before, or you usually go away with friends. Perhaps this trip is just more daunting, for whatever reason. Nerves are a natural part of solo travel, particularly if you’re a woman – we’ve all had the experience of feeling less confident or safe than our male counterparts in certain situations. But how can you equip yourself to master solo travel and become a fearless female explorer? There’s no perfect recipe for easy solo travel, but these skills will certainly help.

Packing Light

When there’s no one else to carry your baggage for you, the weight really starts to matter (there’s a life lesson in there somewhere…!). Be realistic about what you’ll wear, read, and use, and leave the rest behind.

Acting Confident

Chances are, you’ll encounter some questionable situations when traveling. If you’re out there alone, you need to give off the impression that you are strong, determined, and not to be messed with. And guess what? Once you’ve started acting that way, it’s basically true.

Planning Ahead

You can’t rely on anyone else to make the plans for you, so you need to spend some time figuring out transportation and directions when you’re on the move. This is the perfect excuse to flex your planning skills, or to finally develop some!

Trusting Your Instincts

This bar feels dodgy? You don’t like the guy who’s sat next to you on the train? Trust your instincts; find a safe crowd, or get out of there. Politeness doesn’t matter when you’re traveling solo, so learn to trust your instincts.

Adapting To New Situations

Here are things you will find when you’re traveling: Food that seems weird. Bathrooms that seem weird. Customs that seem weird. Adapting and making the best of odd situations is part of solo travel, and it really will make you richer.

Talking To Strangers

If you’ve always been shy about talking to strangers, or prefer to let others handle it, solo travel will really flex your social muscles. Checking in, ordering at restaurants, and asking for directions, often in another language…this is your chance to learn to socialize and negotiate for yourself.

Saying No

As a single female traveler, you’re an easy target for salespeople, hopeful men, and other travelers who want to socialize. That can be great, but it can also lead to a lot of uncomfortable situations if you don’t learn how to firmly and clearly say no when you don’t want to do something.

Saying Yes

On the flipside, when you’re traveling alone, people want to get to know you. On top of that, every day can be spent exactly how you want to spend it, so learn to say yes to new things! Take that tour, hang out with the locals, and accept me-time when you need it.

Solo travel can be eye-opening, energizing, terrifying, and hilarious, often all at the same time. Once you’re in the swing of it, you’ll forget that you ever even worried, but getting to grips with these skills will help you take the first few steps.
