Jojoba oil is the liquid produced in the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) plant, a shrub, which is native to southern Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico.
As many beauty products have become so expensive and sometimes ineffective, switching to natural products might be the best thing you could do for your body for many reasons, natural products are affordable and their effects show during a small period of time but of course never forget to do a patch test just to make sure you’re not allergic to the product you’re about to use .
Benefits of the Jojoba oil:
Jojoba oil could be highly beneficial for any types of hair, you can add it to your hair mask routine and you can also add a few drops to your conditioner which would go a long way, it also helps with fixing the damaged hair when combined with coconut oil and eruca oil and your favourite hair mask or simply apply the oils overnight and wash your hair in the morning if you prefer using them without any other products(you might need to cover your hair to avoid having oil patches on your pillow in the morning), you can also use it after showering to help with untangling your hair and giving it a healthy looking shine.
It can also be used by men to keep their beards healthy and smooth and shiny, because self care is gender neutral.
It can also be used to control oily skin, from my own experience having an oily skin and using oils like jojoba oil and sweet almond oil isn’t as bad as it might sound, i used to think that it was weird using oils on my skin but i was proven wrong, applying jojoba oil on a freshly washed face at night controls your oily skin and helps a lot with the oil control, rubbing it on the parts of your face that tends to be shiny like your forehead and nose will give wonderful results. surprisingly Jojoba oil can help reduce oiliness. This is by modulating the sebum production.
Jojoba oil works in several ways to stop acne formation. First, it acts as a deep cleanser. Secondly, Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties that help control bacterial growth it acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, soothing the irritated skin. When used regularly, Jojoba oil can control acne.

During that time every month when everything hurts and women feel excruciatingly tired of course all they need is some comfort in the products they use for their menstruation period, and while some famous products promise comfort and maximum protection then you end up feeling itchy and uncomfortable, other products do what they are supposedly marketing.
Always sanitary napkins are kind of the worse, they cause itchiness and some people complained from allergic reactions from using them, they also promise complete protection and claim that their products help with keeping you blood stains free, it doesn’t deliver on these promises from personal experience, although it’s an international company and their products are all around the world, it’s not a go to product for me.
On the other hand, another company located in Lebanon called Private produces the best sanitary napkins, you can actually go about your day not feeling bothered or agitated and you wouldn’t have to worry about blood stains or anything because their pads provide maximum protection and comfort as for all of their other products and different kinds of pads they do exactly as promised in the ads.
