Our minds and bodies may be hard at work during the day, but our skin kicks into overdrive overnight. According to The Daily Mail, we spend close to one-third of our lives asleep - and these periods of slumber are prime time for our skin to repair and regenerate itself after a day spent fighting damaging environmental stressors. Luckily, Eminence Organics Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment is infused with hydrating jojoba oil to help your skin maintain its optimal health day and night. Here are four ways jojoba oil benefits your skin 24/7.
Contrary to its name, jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax that is structurally similar to sebum, the oil your body produces naturally to lubricate your skin. This similarity allows jojoba oil to “absorb easily and readily into your skin, making it a gentle, skin-softening moisturizer for all skin types.” The jojoba oil spheres in Eminence Organics Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment gently melt upon application and are thoroughly absorbed by the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and residue-free.
2. Helps Balance Oil Production
Jojoba oil not only mimics the structure of your skin’s natural oils, but it also imitates their activity. New York Magazine says: “With oily skin, these natural ingredients trick your skin into thinking it already has enough oil, shutting off sebum production and closing down the shine factory. In dry or blemished areas, the soothing plant materials also help to lock-in moisture by forming a protective barrier.” In this way, jojoba oil helps balance oil production so your skin doesn’t over - or under - do it.
3. Seals In Moisture
With age, the waxy esters that regulate your skin’s hydration and keep it plump begin to decline. To combat this, jojoba oil “replenishes your natural wax esters and helps keep the skin moisturized”. Since your skin loses more water when you sleep than it does when you’re awake, keeping it hydrated is key to maintaining a radiant complexion. Eminence Organics Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment works overtime to prevent water loss and reveal a refreshed complexion by morning. For skin that is particularly parched, add a layer of your favorite moisturizer before drifting off.
4. Creates A Protective Barrier
With pollutants that accelerate the signs of aging lurking around every corner, keeping your vulnerable skin protected throughout the day - and while you sleep - is ever more important. By sealing in moisture, the jojoba oil in the Lotus Detoxifying Overnight Treatment helps create a protective barrier against the aging effects of environmental stressors. This hydrating treatment renews the skin’s appearance overnight, preventing transepidermal water loss and protecting it from the look of fine lines and wrinkles caused by environmental dryness.
