Jojoba oil is a non-pore-clogging oil that can be used to effectively treat acne and blemishes, as well as cleanse, treat and moisturize the skin, making it a highly useful and beneficial oil to add to any skincare regime.
Since jojoba oil is non-comedogenic, it can be rubbed onto the skin without causing acne. Simply rub 1 tsp. pure jojoba oil on the skin affected with acne, using more pressure on areas that have the most breakouts. The jojoba oil will stick to the impurities and sebum. Continue to rub in the oil for one to two minutes. In order to pull the oils back out, the pores must be opened by applying hot water to the skin. Apply a hot, steaming cloth to the face until it cools, then wipe away the rest of the oil.
Use jojoba oil to treat acne spots. To spot treat acne breakouts, mix 1 tsp. of jojoba oil with five drops of tea tree oil. Pour the oils into a glass container, seal the container and store it in a refrigerator. When you want to use the oil on pimples, dip a cotton swab into the container and apply the oil to the skin where the breakout occurs. There's no need to apply the oil to unaffected areas—only apply it to the blemish. Repeat up to three times per day.
Jojoba oil can be used to condition skin that's both oily and dry. It loosens and melts sebum, making in an effective moisturizer for acne-prone skin. Place three to four drops in your hands and rub them together well. Gently smooth the oil onto clean skin, massaging the oil in carefully until it's absorbed. Use jojoba oil on the skin twice per day, in the morning and at night.
