Whats up everyone? 

Anyone else having any issues with jojoba oil?

 

I use only 3 drops with the moisturizer and when I put it on my face...damn...I just get the worst shine..I do not know why...otherwise it has certainly been great in terms of acting as an anti-inflammatory.  Anyone else had this same issue and have a solution of some sort?

Use CVS oil absorbing sheets. put 2 sheets on your forehead, 1 on each cheek, and 1 on your chin. Let it sit for like 2mins then pull them off.

I only use it in the morning because thats when people will see me. At night I dont use it.

I used to notice the same thing. But I did continue using the jojoba oil and found that over a few weeks, my skin wasn't as oily or shiny anymore. Perhaps it just takes a little getting used too. I even use 6 drops in my moisturizer.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

When you say you use 6 drops in your moisturizer, what do you mean? Do you mean that you put 6 drops of it into the entire bottle of moisturizer and mix? Or do you add 6 drops to each application of moisturizer?

Be really generous with it at night if you are super dry. It doesn't matter so much if you are shiny at night. And use a little less during the day if the shine is really bothersome. Also, after you apply the jojoba oil and moisturizer let it set a little while then blot off the excess shine if you need to.

I only used the jojoba oil in the first month of the regimen, it wasn't dans oil it was one I found at the store, but honestly I don't need it, I slathered on enough moisturizer and I was fine, I'm in my 3rd month of the regimen now and my skin has never felt this smooth and healthy, try using dans AHA+ after your 6th week it's great for moisture, and scarring as well.
