Dr. Mercola Organic Jojoba Oil Description

  • Dr. Mercola® Healthy Skin
  • Simmondsia chinensis
  • Organic Moisturizing Oil from the Jojoba Seed
  • Product of Israel
  • USDA Organic

Benefits: Hydrates and moisturizes skin, hair and scalp without leaving an oily residue.

 

Jojoba oil is one of the most popular personal care oils available today, but for optimal benefits, you only want to purchase 100% pure jojoba oil, not a synthetic or refined version.

 

Jojoba oil is rarely sold in its pure form, as 95% of Jojoba plants grown in the United States end up in personal care products blended with other ingredients.

 

So how can you tell if jojoba oil is Truly pure and organic? It's all about the color. Pure jojoba oil has a bright golden hue, while the processed version is clear and transparent.

 

Dr. Mercola's pure Organic Jojoba Oil is derived from the seed of the Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) shrub, and contains many nutritional compounds, including long-chain essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols. It is ideal for all skin and hair types, and can be used to promote softer hair and skin. The good news is that since it's non-allergenic and non-comedogenic, it will not block your pores.

 

You can try Dr. Mercola's Organic Jojoba Oil as a treatment for dry skin or scalp, as a hair moisturizer or pre-shave oil, or for makeup removal. The convenient dropper bottle makes it easy to apply the perfect amount, and you'll absolutely love the blissful scent.

 

My Jojoba Oil also makes the perfect carrier oil for all the organic essential oils. Simply combine Jojoba oil with a few drops of one (or a few) of the Organic Essential Oils and massage into your skin for a totally organic, invigorating experience.

 

As an added benefit, you can store Dr. Mercola's Jojoba Oil for long periods of time since it does not oxidize easily, and will not turn rancid compared to other oils. Clearly, Dr. Mercola's Organic Jojoba Oil is a great addition to your health regimen and a product that you can use in many different ways. Order your bottle today and begin your journey to healthier skin and hair.

4 Mistakes to Avoid When Removing Makeup, According to a Dermatologist

Makeup is a great way to help your skin look fresh and flawless, and – of course – it’s fun to play with different styles and looks. But if you’re not removing makeup properly at the end of the day, you could be jeopardizing your skin’s health and appearance. Closeup View of Hands with Cotton Round and Pink Bottle of Toner to Represent How to Remove Makeup | Vitacost.com/blog It’s tempting sometimes to just go to bed without cleansing your face or fully removing eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara. On occasions when we skip the makeup removal process, it’s not uncommon to see new blemishes pop up soon after. This happens because pores become clogged, bacteria breeds and breakouts result. Beyond simply not cleansing your face, you also might be making some mistakes with makeup removal that can jeopardize your complexion, causing irritation, encouraging fine lines and wrinkles, and more. Luckily, it’s easy to remove makeup the right way. Take a look at these common errors and simple fixes, recommended by a dermatologist.

How to Remove Makeup: Mistakes to Avoid

Makeup removal mistake #1: You’re using wipes daily

Beauty Without Cruelty Eye and Face MakeUp Remover Extra Gentle | Vitacost.com/blogWhile it’s not a problem to use makeup removal wipes when you’re on the go, after a workout or occasionally sleeping away from home, they should not be used as your primary makeup removal method at the end of every day. “I routinely see persistent redness, irritation, dry skin around the eyes and base of neck and itching from makeup wipes, and the patch testing I have performed in these cases tends to reveal preservative allergies,” says Erum N. Ilyas, MD, MBE, FAAD, board certified dermatologist and CEO and founder of AmberNoon. Instead, use a makeup removal cleanser, such as Beauty Without Cruelty Extra Gentle Eye and Face Makeup Remover, with ingredients designed to nourish and protect your skin. Alternately, you can use cold cream or petroleum jelly products (such as Vaseline) and a cotton ball to wipe away makeup before cleansing. It’s always a good idea to have your skin analyzed by an esthetician or dermatologist, and to discuss the best makeup removal methods for you.

Makeup removal mistake #2: You’re scrubbing too hard

If makeup does not wash easily with soap and water, chances are the oil or wax bases of your makeup products may require a different method for removal. Instead of scrubbing, try wiping away residue using a cotton ball and micellar water. “There are some that have a tendency to think they need to ‘scrub’ the remaining makeup residue from their skin, but inevitably if you resort to manual exfoliation to remove makeup, you will likely take some skin with it,” Ilyas says. Instead, try hydrophilic- and hydrophobic-based products instead. Hydrophilic or water based products will wash easily with soap and water. “Hydrophobic or oil-based products will need a product that is similar to help remove it, and this is where a petroleum jelly-based product or moisturizer will work better with less irritation to remove these products,” Ilyas suggests.

Makeup removal mistake #3: You use alcohol-based toners or astringents

For everyday makeup removal, it’s best to skip astringent products that can be drying or irritating. Toners and “tingling” products may offer a satisfying “clean feeling” – but they are not intended for removing a face full of makeup every night. “It can feel good to use these products at times and that there is a satisfaction of sorts from seeing dirt come off the skin and lingering on a cotton ball; however, alcohol based astringents will likely begin to irritate the skin or run the risk of altering the pH of the skin and lead to further irritation,” Ilyas says.

Makeup removal mistake #4: You forget to moisturize

After removing makeup, it’s natural for some superficial skin cells to be lost to the process. To keep your skin nourished and properly hydrated, it’s a good idea to follow up with a high-quality facial moisturizer. Keep in mind that skin is an organ and serves as a barrier to the environment. Rehydrating after makeup removal not only helps restore and protect skin, but it contributes to skin’s overall health and wellness.
