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.

Beautiful Hair All Winter Long

Each time winter winds blow through your hair, some of its natural moisture is removed. As a result, your strands become more brittle and less resilient, making them prone to breakage.

Here are a few handy tips to keep your hair looking so beautiful that you won’t feel like hiding it under a hat or scarf.

Conditioning Products

Be sure to identify your main issues with your hair and read the labels thoroughly to help you find the best product for your needs.

Styling Devices

Ideally, you should limit the number of times you use a styling device on your hair each week to avoid creating unnecessary damage. For example, if you are just going to hang out at home on the weekend, why not allow your hair to dry naturally? Alternatively, you can allow your hair to partially dry before using your styling devices.

Dying and Perming Your Hair

It is important not to have your hair dyed or permed too frequently if you want to keep your its gorgeous looks. In particular, you should never complete both types of treatments at the same time if you want to avoid hair damage.

Hydrating Products

Caring for your hair is an ongoing task that should task place every day. During the winter, however, it is even more important to follow a few tips to help keep your tresses looking their best. If you do so, your hair should look soft and feel manageable all year long. Don’t let cold air and low humidity destroy your hair’s beauty this winter. Pay attention to how it looks and take steps to maintain its natural appearance every day.
