Castor oil is one of the best kept beauty secret. It has a low molecular weight, which means it is absorbed readily into skin providing nourishment and moisturizing effects. It penetrates deep into the skin, softens and hydrates it. The oil also helps stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, which help to delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
This not only repairs and softens your skin, but also delays the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, giving you a younger, smoother and softer look. Castor oil is the best inexpensive botox treatment you can get, and it works especially well for crow’s feet or dark circles around the eyes.
Castor oil is a moisturizing, wrinkle-reducing night cream. Apply it on your face immediately after you have washed your face and before going to bed, this will help the oil to be soaked into the skin easily.
You can mix castor oil with jojoba oil. Gently massage your face in the evening with the oil mix, then put slightly warm damp washcloth on your face for about a minute and take away the excess oil with a cotton pad. Your skin will be soft, nourished and hydrated.
Castor oil also can be used to moisturize the gentle under eye area. Mix castor oil with sweet almond oil in proportion and use it as an under eye cream.
Castor oil is also good at treating such problems as skin dryness. Just mix castor oil with a little coconut oil and apply to the affected area of your skin, leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse off and pat dry. Your skin will become softer and dryness will disappear.
