Jojoba oil is derived from the seed of the jojoba plant. It is a waxy liquid and is easily absorbed by the skin. It is a rich source of microelements and nutrients like Zinc, Iodine, Silicon and Vitamins E and B. Its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory property makes it a good adjunct in acne treatments. When applied on the skin surface, it mimics the skins own sebum secretion, thereby reducing the activity of the sebaceous glands. When washed, it removes the grime and sebum trapped in pores. It thus helps in controlling acne breakouts naturally and effectively. Further its anti-oxidant property helps in maintaining the skins youthful glow and elasticity. It can be applied on the skin in the form of a cleanser or in the form of face packs. However, it may not suit all skin types and one must rule out allergies. Furthermore, moderate to severe acne may not respond merely to surface applications of jojoba and one may still need a course of internal medication for better control of acne.
