How much should I use?

Between 1-2 drops for face and neck.

How to apply it?

  • You can apply the oil directly to clean, dry or slightly damp skin — for example after spraying a toning lotion.
  • You can enrich your serum or cream by mixing 1-2 drops. Or apply the oil with gentle touches all over the face at the end of the routine, that is, after the serum and/or cream.
  • For the body, you can also use them directly on the areas you are interested in treating or mixed with your usual moisturizing cream or lotion.
  • For hair, apply 3-5 drops from mid-lengths to ends, then wrap it in a towel and wait at least half an hour. After the exposure time, you wash it with your usual shampoo and that's it. You will see how your hair becomes soft and silky. If your hair is dyed or damaged, it is preferable that you use a conditioner and/or mask depending on the hair needs you have at the moment.

Can I use it if I have oily skin or acne?

Yes, in fact, thanks to its similar composition to the skin's natural sebum, it is highly recommended to help regulate sebum and provide the skin with essential fatty acids (omega 6) without leaving a greasy sensation.

Can I use it as a makeup remover?

Yes, both to remove makeup from eyes and lips and face. If you do double cleansing, jojoba oil would be the first step, and as a second step you can use a light milk, foam, gel or syndet soap.
