Jojoba oil has some amazing properties often used in superior skincare and cosmetic products.
Jojoba oil is suitable for all skin types and will penetrate skin readily. It is excellent to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles while promoting skin suppleness and elasticity. It helps prevent skin dehydration and balance oil production of the skin.
Jojoba oil is well tolerated by people with skin problems and does not aggravate acne, and also helps to break down sebum in plugged-up pores. In dermatological tests done by Dr.'s Christensen and Packman, it was shown that jojoba oil increases the skin's suppleness by 45% and after 8 hours the effect was still present.
It was also found that jojoba oil softens and smoothes the skin with fine line reduction and in one test done, 20 women's skin suppleness increased with 37% after 30 minutes and remained so for a hour.
Continued use of jojoba oil results in reducing superficial facial lines. In a test, the reduction of lines were 26%, 18% and 11% after 1, 4 and 8 hours.
It has also been tested for hypoallergenic reactions and 2 out of 50 people with known allergic skin types showed a reaction, but this reaction cleared completely after 24 hours.

Cold weather is here and that means your skin is in for a change. Unless you live someplace tropical, the winter months can really impact your complexion. You can protect your skin by making these simple changes to your beauty routine.
1. Much needed ingredients
Pay attention to the ingredients and opt for a boost of antioxidants to jump start collagen production. Look for products containing vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea, peptides, lipoic acid, and CoQ enzymes. Antioxidants help regulate melanin formation, increase the skin's repair rate, and encourage circulation.
2. Moisturize your air
Dry air is one of the biggest contributors to dull winter skin. Keep skin hydrated by humidifying the air around you in both your home and your office. Our skin feels balanced at 60 percent or above relative humidity, below that your skin starts to get dehydrated. Sleep with a humidifier in the bedroom or put dishes of water nearby.
3. Use cream vs. lotions
When choosing a moisturizer for the winter, look for products that come in a jar rather than a pump. "A pump and pour bottle has a higher water content and PH base that can dry out skin," says Dr. Brooke Jackson, board certified dermatologist. The thicker formula is better suited for skin parched by chilly winter conditions.
