Castor Oil for Wrinkle Treatment

Wrinkles do come naturally with aging skin. However, dryness and sun exposure can aggravate how they appear and when they appear.

That’s because the molecules are often too large to seep in.

Step 1: Cleanse and tone skin. Make sure your face is rid of makeup and other impurities before putting on castor oil.

Step 2: Simply apply castor oil around your eyes to relieve and smoothen out your crows feet, wrinkles and fine lines. For better control, use q-tips to apply. Be careful not to get it into your eyes and wash your hands right after you’re done with application.

Step 3: Wait for about 15 to 20 minutes. By then, the castor oil will have penetrated your skin. Feel free to top off with your makeup or other skincare products after that.

Step 4: Repeat the process twice daily, once in the morning and once again at night to see visible results sooner.

Apply to the area of your scalp where you are experiencing unusual hair loss. Do the same if you need a few more strands on your eyebrows. It can also be used to moisturize the rest of your face, to soften thick calluses, and to relieve various forms of skin irritations and allergies.
