Jojoba is also naturally perfect for hair care – goodbye dandruff and split ends. And for the guys there are tips on maintaining a smart, perfectly groomed beard.
Treating Cracked Heels Naturally with Jojoba Oil
Cracked heels can be really painful and don’t look great. Skin on our heels should to be very supple and ‘stretchy’ so it can expand to absorb pressure from walking and standing (particularly when you’re pregnant). If heels get dry and thick, they lose their elasticity and literally ‘crack’ under pressure. With regular foot care you’ll get smooth, flexible pain free heels. Pamper yourself with this home treatment.

Treating Dry, Cracked Cuticles: When to use jojoba oil
Split, cracked and bleeding cuticles are most often caused by very dry skin. Regular washing in harsh detergents, nail polish remover, and dry weather strip moisture from cuticles. To heal and prevent more damage do two simple things: Protect and Moisturise.
What is Jojoba - Naturally High in Vitamins A & E
Healing Split Cuticles
Painful cuticle splits and cracks need to be protected until completely healed. Cracked skin is where bacteria can enter your body and cause more serious problems. Use gloves and moisturise often until skin is back to normal – then keep using them to prevent flare-ups.
Remember, chronic cuticle infections or nail discoloration may also be a sign of an underling fungal or bacterial infection. A doctor can diagnose and treat this.

Natural Remedies for Dry Scalp & Dandruff
One of the most common causes of flaky dandruff is dry skin; another is a yeast-like fungus called malassezia. It is naturally occurring and only a problem when out of balance causing excessive shedding (flakes).

Dry Scalp – Intense Moisture Treatment
As you age, your scalp produces less oil and hair gets drier and duller. Try an intense jojoba oil hair treatment for deeply moisturising hair and scalp. Jojoba is naturally rich in vitamins A, D and E, and is naturally anti-fungal. The oil helps flatten hair cuticles, creating shine.

Best Beard Moisturisers – Natural Oils
For a beard to look smart, neat and smell great it needs a fair bit of TLC. Avoid ‘beardruff’ (beard dandruff) with regular moisture, brushing and cleaning.
Replace Lost Moisture
Natural sebum oil coating our skin and hair keeps a beard nourished in the early stages. As your beard gets longer, the naturally occurring sebum is going to need a boost to cover all that area.
Chemical Free Beard Care
‘Beardruff’ shouldn’t be treated with harsh chemical dandruff shampoos. Try oils that are tree or plant based, and a much gentler option for sensitive skin. Jojoba oil is fragrance free and is the only oil that mimics our own natural sebum; the closest thing to a natural skin moisture boost.
