Jojoba winter facial - Nourish the skin with natural moisturizer

This jojoba winter facial was sent to us by Sarah. Jojoba is perfect for the winter as it is a great moisturizer. Jojoba oil is recommended for sensitive skin because it can moisturize and soften the skin up without causing any overt reactions. It has antibacterial properties so it is considered a good ingredients for skin care recipes targeting acne and skin infections.

This jojoba oil recipe includes a facial steam that opens up the clogged pores allowing the impurities to get out and moisture from the oil to get into the skin.

Jojoba Winter Facial

You will need:

  • A wash cloth
  • A clean towel
  • A veggie steamer
  • Your favorite face scrub
  • A 4 oz bottle of jojoba oil with 20 drops of tea tree oil added to the bottle (this will last many facial)
  • Witch hazel
  • Cotton balls
  • To use:

    1. You can put wet washcloths in a veggie steamer and get them nice and hot. Make sure you cool them a little by shaking them in the air and test the heat on your arm skin. If you can put on your arm with out it burning then slowly try your face skin. Steam your face with this hot wash cloth or hold your head over a bowl steaming water with a towel covering your head to trap steam. Let steam for a good minute.

    2. Now take a wet washcloth, you can use the same one, and scrub the dead skin from your face. You can use a face scrub now as well.

    3. Rinse well.

    4. Now wash face with the jojoba oil mix, really massage it into your pores and into dry areas. It pulls toxins from the pores.

    5. Next, rinse the skin. You can use a washcloth to remove oil and more dead skin and impurities.

    6. Dry your face with a clean towel.
