It is always important to hydrate your skin – but besides using a good cream, adding jojoba oil to your regime can really up the effectiveness of your skincare.  Jojoba oil can be used in so many ways, containing a cocktail of nutrients and antioxidants. Helping to soothe skin, calm inflammation and control acne breakouts, it is even known to heal sunburns. Since it is non-comedogenic, (it does not cause blackheads or clog pores) it’s ideal for oily and acne-prone skin. Apart from creams or serums, you can even find the ingredient in oil-based cleansers or makeup removers.
