Wrinkles – Can Jojoba Oil Help?
Wrinkles – whilst they can give character to a face, most of us would sooner they were not as prevalent as they are as we age. Crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines along the forehead or laughter lines around the mouth are all signs of ageing that most of us feel we could do without. Those who are particularly concerned about their appearance look for beauty skin care products that can reduce the impact of facial wrinkles on their appearance. Jojoba oil has been suggested as a possible natural candidate.
Jojoba oil is often quoted as having a very similar composition to the sebum of the skin which is why some skin care professionals suggest it for treating wrinkles. Wrinkles can form over time if the skin is not sufficiently moisturised and one of the main attributes of jojoba oil is that it is a great moisturiser. It has been said that jojoba oil can do what sebum can do for the skin…and more.
Water based moisturisers tend to evaporate which decreases their effectiveness to keep the skin moisturised and supple. When jojoba oil is applied, it is readily absorbed by the skin without any greasy or pore clogging sensations. Nor does it make the skin feel tacky or sticky. It encourages the skin to remain supple and on a micro scale it may even promote some skin rejuvenation although this may be a contentious issue amongst experts in the field.
Vitamin E is present in significant amounts in jojoba oil and there is evidence that suggests Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, maintains good skin health and assists in the prevention of the formation of wrinkles.
If you are looking for a natural skin care product for the maintenance of your skin condition then it may well be worthwhile trying out jojoba oil for yourself. If you check online forums discussing its use then you will find that there are many women who claim that it has improved the quality of their skin and reduced the appearance of their wrinkles in a relatively short period of time (and compared with many of the proprietary products, the best organic jojoba oils are relatively inexpensive). Some of the comments made that it causes the skin and pores to tighten up a little which leads to current wrinkles gradually fading.
As with anything that you are ingesting or putting onto your skin you should be mindful of a reactions or side-effects that may occur. Having said that, reported allergic skin reactions to pure and organic jojoba oil are considered to be relatively uncommon particularly compared with other ingredients that are often incorporated within expensive beauty products.
