Benefits of Jojoba Oil

What Is Jojoba Oil?

Jojoba oil is a plant extract. It comes from jojoba plant (sometimes called goat nut and pignut), a shrub found throughout the Southwestern United States and parts of Mexico. The plant’s seeds produce oils and wax, which are extracted and used in a variety of applications. The earliest uses came from Native American cultures, who used jojoba oil to treat wounds.

What Are the Benefits of Jojoba Oil?

The list of reported benefits seems nearly endless. There are claims that it can regrow hair, prevent razor burn, and treat skin disorders. While we have no reason to doubt any of these, we’ll only be discussing a few of our favorite (and more researched) benefits.

Moisturizing Skin:

Jojoba oil’s chemical makeup is remarkably similar to the oil produced by the human skin (sebum). The similarity between sebum and jojoba oil allows your skin to absorb the oils naturally. Routinely applying jojoba oil can keep your skin hydrated and supple.

Fighting Wrinkles:

Antioxidants in jojoba oil, like vitamin E, help fight free radicals, a primary force in skin aging. The oil also contains linoleic acid which replenishes the skin by assisting with cell regeneration. A light application of jojoba oil may keep your skin looking and feeling firm.

Repairing Damage:

The same soothing properties that make jojoba a good moisturizer also make it an excellent healer. Jojoba oil soothes skin after overexposure to the sun, while also helping to alleviate redness and irritation. If you’ve been out in the sun too long or you’re experiencing cracked skin, try applying a jojoba product to problem areas.

How to Get the Most of Jojoba Oil

To take full advantage of jojoba oil, it’s recommended that you only use high-quality products. Some producers mix their oils with other chemicals, creating a solution that can be counterproductive and even be damaging the skin. However, getting your hands on pure jojoba oil can be difficult. If you do get a product you trust, figuring out the right ratio to use can be hard, and the application can be messy.

How to Stay True to Your Summer Goals

Did you give yourself summer goals? Maybe you promised to get in great shape, travel, or read more. You got started on your morning sit-ups, picked out the locations on a map, and created a reading list, but maybe you felt busy, distracted, or discouraged. Summer arrived and you felt like it was too late. We’ve all been there. The good news? You don’t have to give up on your summer goals. We’ve got some great tips for you on how to get back on track.

Remember Why You Started

Without purpose, your goals are just meaningless words that you’ll avoid. Write down your goals and underneath them, write down why they were essential to you when you came up with them. If any of these goals are no longer relevant to you, feel comfortable dropping them.

Remind yourself why you set your goals

Be Willing to Readjust Your Goals

It’s already late July, so if your plan was to make the Olympic team by fall, you might need to tweak your timeline a little. Kidding aside, there’s nothing wrong with updating your goals. Pushing dates back, or changing to a more attainable goal will be less discouraging. Ask yourself what you think you can realistically accomplish this summer. Create a feasible plan to meet those newly adjusted goals and press onward!

Find a Partner

Find someone that will keep you honest and hold you accountable. Choosing the right person is important. Some people may be motivated by choosing someone who crushes every goal. Feeding off their success can be a great source of positive energy. Others may find this person discouraging. If this is the case try finding someone who has similar goals, but also needs some motivation. Working together keeps you accountable without feeling discouraged.

Attaining Goals Is All About Positive Momentum

Take a look at your original goal, then try breaking it into a few smaller tasks. Make the first task something easy and attainable. When you accomplish this, your momentum and desire to continue will propel you forward into incrementally harder tasks.

Get Comfortable with Failure

You likely won’t accomplish every single thing you set about achieving this summer. That’s okay. Look for your small victories, then get comfortable with the fact that summer goals and goals, in general, don’t always happen on our timelines. If you can find a valuable lesson in one of your failures, that’s equally as valuable, if not more so.

It's okay to fail at your goals

Look Ahead

Identifying past failures is essential, but always remember that you need to look forward most of the time. Set up end of summer goals, fall goals, 2019 summer goals and remind yourself that if goals aren't a least a little scary or audacious, they might not be set quite high enough.
