How to Cleanse With Jojoba Oil
Clean your face using jojoba oil and a washcloth.

Jojoba oil can be used for facial cleansing. Oil only facial cleansing methods provide you with a natural alternative to harsh chemically-laden facial cleansers. Jojoba oil is an organic emollient that prevents moisture loss and skin dryness, according to U Healthy, a program run by the Northwestern Health Sciences University. The jojoba oil cleansing method can be used to clean the face and remove makeup. However, this method should not be used more than once per day.
