Re: Looking for success stories of jojoba oil healing dry skin and acne
I have adult acne on and off in the last 15 years. it started flaring up again three months ago. I have tried different moisturizers, topical antibiotics, etc; spent $$$ on them! Finally six weeks ago, I ditched all commercial moisturizers, and Cetaphil and started using jojoba oil (Desert Essence brand)on my face at night after I wash with Purpose bar. I wash my face once a day only otherwise my face starts getting very dry and just looks plain irritated. Anyhow, so far so good. My acne is calming down, jojoba oil is making my skin looks younger and radiant. Somedays, I feel I need more moisturizing and I also plan on getting some Vitamin E oil and making my own 10% Vitamin E oil 90% jojoba oil facial mositurizer. I hope that Vitamin E oil will not break me out. I think it is worth a try since so many people on these boards got satisfactory outcome.
Editing to say, the other day after I came back from swimming I put jojoba oil on my body all over and then used my regular moisturizer. My skin has never felt so soft.
