Back in school, an old friend met me purchasing regular castor oil. She immediately asked if I was going to use it on my face, as she’s heard that it is a really good makeup remover. I told her I intended using it for my hair. After we parted however, the inquisitive cat in me headed to Google to find out if truly, castor oil could be used for the skin. I found a lot of benefits of castor oil on the skin! Just read below😄
· FIGHTS AGING
Castor oil is said to be able to slow down the aging process. On application, castor oil penetrates the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These tend to soften and hydrate our skin, delaying the appearance of wrinkles. Add this to our daily doses of laughter and smiles and say hello to younger skin for longer!
· REDUCES ACNE
Applying castor oil after washing your face aids in reduction of acne occurrence. The ricinoleic acid found in castor oil penetrates the skin’s layers, fighting off all acne-causing bacteria.
· SKIN MOISTURISER
Castor oil is rich in fatty acids that find it easy penetrating the skin. This helps to reduce dryness. All you need is to apply it to your face right after washing. Castor oil is an all-natural inexpensive skin moisturizer!
· FADES SCARS
This may take some time and requires diligent application. The ever hardworking fatty acids in castor oil penetrate the skin, going deep into the scar tissues, taking them out, whilst at the same time encouraging the growth of healthy tissues in and around that perimeter.
