Jojoba oil closely resembles the human sebum, therefore its uses in skin care are innumerable. It helps in removing excess oil from the skin and unclogging the pores. It has natural moisturizing and emollient properties, thereby preventing dry patches and irritations. When used regularly it helps in controlling acne because of its vitamin A and E content.
Papaya is rich in vitamin A and Papain enzyme, which help remove dead and damaged skin cells and increase cellular rejuvenation. Papain enzyme reduces wrinkles by controlling the collagen and elastic fibres in the skin dermis. Papaya has other strong antioxidants as well like Flavanoids, vitamin A and vitamin C which neutralize free radicals and help keep the skin looking young.
Rose water is a great toner and cleanser since it helps in unclogging pores of excess dirt and oil. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe irritated skin.
