Skin Care Tip: Jojoba - best home oil (DIY)

submitted by Karen, Chicago area, IL US

Jojoba oil is one of the best oils for preventing dryness of the skin (and hair, too) It is similar to natural sebum which drier skin lacks to hold in natural moisture. Apply after cleasing face, while still damp. It's great around eyes. Because it is really a wax, not an oil, it is not subject to going rancid, like vegetable oils are. It is very cost effective because it is concentrated, yet it feels light, not thick. Jojoba oil is available in health food stores. It can be used in any DIY recipe calling for "oil."

Skin feels less tight, tiny lines around eyes and smile look smoother. Jojoba oil leaves no shine and has no scent!
