Jojoba Oil Treats Acne August 15, 2012 21:59 1 Comment
How jojoba oil effectively treats acne
Acne. Oh so painful. A prevalent theory to why jojoba oil is so effective in treating acne is because since it is so similar to sebum, it tricks the skin into believing that it has already produced enough. This way, the production of sebum decreases and balances out and so does acne. Over time you will be left with a less oily face, but equally moisturized and protected and more importantly, no further clogging of pores.
Another reason why it treats acne so efficiently is because of its antibacterial properties. It kills the bacteria on the skin that cause acne.
Porterspa Jojoba oil is deep acting and cleanses out your pores, pushing clogged dirt up to the surface. When first used, something called“purging” occurs whereby all the non-inflamed acne like whiteheads are brought to the surface. These will pop naturally, releasing pus, bacteria and dirt. Its soothing property can also calm redness on your skin due to acne.
Here are a few tips if you decide to use jojoba oil to treat your acne.
1. Cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser. This will remove any dirt or oil, promoting the absorption of jojoba oil into the pores.
2. Pet your skin to dry gently and apply jojoba oil immediately after cleansing. Scrubbing too hard might aggravate and further inflame your acne.
3. Use generous amounts of jojoba oil and apply gently to skin. Overusing might cause your face to look shiny.
Continue for a few weeks and you will see tremendous results. Do not get let down by the purging process. Once that passes, you’ll be glad you read this on Porterspa! Also since jojoba oil is natural and chemical free, you can be assured your skin is in good hands. All Porterspa Jojoba Oil is 100% Organic as well.
