Why you should use castor oil on face..
The basic concept of this method of skin care is cleansing by applying castor oil on face. The oil is used to massage your skin, dissolve the oil that has hardened with impurities and trapped in the pores. Cleaning the face has never been so easy, practical and healthy as it is with the use of oils rich in nutrients that are accessible from your own kitchen.
Being clear, bright, smooth, free of blackheads and pimples, cysts and other imperfections, seems to be an elusive goal. However, the industry of skin care, makes us believe by stressing the need to remove fat from the skin thoroughly and apply chemicals that burn in order to avoid these imperfections with their recommendations. But do they ever work? The cycle seems endless. It’s exhausting, painful, embarrassing not to mention expensive.
Going back to basics when it comes to cleansing and moisturizing the skin, it is imperative that you consider the fact that oil dissolves oil. Your skin is naturally lubricated with oil, and as we are creatures that adapt, how can you believe that this is not the proper way to care for our body, as it has already been adapted this way to meet the need.
If you’ve been fighting for good skin for a long time, you’re probably backing away from the idea of applying some castor oil on face. Do not be afraid. The oil will not cause blemishes, pimples, cysts, whiteheads, etc. These are the result of several different factors, including hormones, bacteria, dead skin cells and accumulation of these factors. If the skin naturally produces oil, it is because it needs it. It is there for the benefit of your skin, allowing your largest organ to function properly. It is natural, also heals, protects and moisturizes your skin so that it can function properly. A properly functioning skin is beautiful, clear and bright. Learn to work with your skin, not against it, you will save a lot in the long run.

Castor oil on face
Castor oil has been the focus of many books and medical discussions for a long time, because of its seemingly “magical” healing properties.
We will need two oils. The first, and most important, is castor oil. If you do not have this food in your basic medical kit, it’s time to invest in some. It is easy to get a hold of, most health shops will have some. Castor oil has potent anti-inflammatory properties, but also has properties for healing and cleansing, so we are focusing on this oil as our main oil. Although it may be the most important oil in this recipe, you’re not going to be using it in a large quantity, as some castor oil can surprisingly leave you with dry skin.
Sunflower Seed oil Combination
Since castor oil is thick and its cleansing properties are strong, we have to dilute it with another oil, thinner in consistency, but no less rewarding for the skin. The sunflower seed oil or olive oil, are wonderful oils for application to the skin. However, sunflower seed oil is better for massage. It sinks into the skin better, helping the castor oil transport deeper into the pores and also helps to clean the dirt from the surface of the skin.
Essential fatty acids, while not occurring naturally in the body, are necessary for the health of our cell membranes. These acids help restore the skin’s natural moisture balance and help prevent unnecessary dryness.
The secondary oil you choose should be determined by the needs of your skin and the properties of the oil. Choose from natural vegetable oils that are cold pressed, as these have the nutrients, vitamins and fatty acids that mineral oil and other refined oils don’t. You can also replace sunflower seed oil with olive oil.
Castor oil and Sunflower Seed/Olive oil Ingredients and how to prepare
- 16 ounce bottle of sunflower seed oil – or olive oil
- 16 ounce bottle of castor oil
- Empty bottle
- Wash cloth
- essential oil (optional)
How to prepare:
- To make the solution, fill half an empty bottle with castor oil. The top of the bottle with either olive oil or sunflower seed oil, close the bottle and shake for 1 minute. (If you want to add essential oils like lavender or tea tree, add them before shaking.)
- Now that the solution is ready, use it. Put 1/4 tablespoon oil in your hand and rub the whole face dry for 1 minute. (For women, it will not be necessary to remove makeup, because the oil also serves as an excellent makeup remover.)
- After the face is completely saturated in oil, wet the cloth in hot water, squeeze and put on you for 30 seconds. This allows steam to help the castor oil release.
- Now rub the whole face cloth to remove the oil. No need for a moisturizer, but if you plan to go outside, remember to apply your sunscreen if you wear makeup that doesn’t have any.
- Do this once or twice a day and see great results in a week. If you only wish to apply it once, apply it at night.
