It is a surprise to many people that Jojoba Oil is used to treat acne because it is oil. People automatically assume that oils will clog the pores and make acne worse, but because of the unique structure of Jojoba Oil, that does not occur. Studies have shown that Jojoba Oil can actually help to unblock the pores and also they can prevent further clogging later on too. Jojoba Oil actually works, basically it is a little like the sebum in our skin in structure. This means that when it is absorbed into the body, it can easily mix with the natural sebum and stop it from clogging up the pores. It is the result of too much sebum which causes acne in the first place, so when the Jojoba Oil helps to unclog the pores and keep Sebum levels controlled; it automatically relieves the acne problem.
The Jojoba Oil manages to trick the body into thinking that it is Sebum. So if the body thinks it is Sebum, it will then not produce as much as it would usually do. As well as helping to control the sebum, Jojoba Oil also helps to moisturize the skin and minimize the risk of flaking.
So overall Jojoba oil is definitely one of the best natural treatments for mild acne, but remember that if you have a more severe type of acne, it will need to be looked at by a doctor. Also not all natural treatments will work for everyone so do not expect miracles and always give the treatments that you do try, at least a couple of months to work.
