2. Skin Moisturizer
Our skin is the largest organ, and it’s the only organ that receives exposure to the elements. Just like any other organ, it requires maintenance, and without an adequate moisturizing program, you can expect health issues to start occurring with the epidermis. Unlike other organs, we have a visual cue for our skin, and we know when it’s dry or infected.
Using jojoba oil on your skin provides it with a restorative and cleansing effect that leaves a lasting glow. The epidermis contains sebaceous glands that secrete oils to lubricate the skin and keep it moist. When our skin is in poor health, or we find ourselves in an arid climate, the sebaceous secretions are not enough to meet the demand for the oils, resulting in dry, flaky skin that’s prone to injury and infection.
Jojoba oil has very similar characteristics to the sebaceous oils that moisturize the skin, making it an excellent supplement for optimal epidermal health.
