Can You Really Erase Wrinkles With Castor Oil?
By Ryan English Platinum Quality Author
Many people faced with the problem of wrinkles join the search for the best wrinkle treatment each day. Growing numbers of health and beauty conscious men and women are looking for the right treatment to help reduce and remove their wrinkles that are brought on by aging, stress and dry skin. They often have a hard time choosing from the many hundreds of available treatments for wrinkles, from creams to oils to injections.
Of the many anti-wrinkle treatments that are available commercially, many are formulated using a combination of natural ingredients and synthetic substances. These treatments are often viewed as being unnatural as they contain artificial ingredients and some people are unwilling to use such treatments. They prefer to use natural treatments instead. One of these natural treatments that is worth considering is the use of castor oil as an anti-wrinkle treatment.
Castor oil, which is produced from the seed of the castor plant, is usually taken as a health supplement. However, many people do not realize that it can be an effective form of wrinkle treatment as well. By simply applying castor oil to your skin, you help to soothe your skin, restoring its natural youthful appearance and helping to diminish unsightly wrinkles.
One of the properties of castor oil that makes it an effective form of anti-wrinkle treatment is that it is very effective at moisturizing your skin. Castor oil has many antioxidant properties and helps defend your skin against oxidizing agents. It also cleanses and heals your skin even as it hydrates your skin. Also, castor oil does not leave an oily feeling on your skin after you use it. Simply wash it off with some warm water or even some gentle facial cleanser and it will leave your skin feeling smooth and supple. People with dry skin will benefit greatly from the application of castor oil to areas of the skin affected by wrinkles.
Castor oil also helps increase the flow of blood to the skin that it is applied to. Increased blood flow means that the skin receives more nutrients and oxygen, making skin healthier and fuller, helping to erase wrinkles and fine lines. Even heavy wrinkles respond well to the increased circulation of blood and lessen or fade.
Many people who use castor oil on their skin on a regular basis report that the treatment leaves them feeling younger and their skin looking healthier. Castor oil also has a positive effect on wrinkles and fine lines, reducing the severity of wrinkling and also giving skin a natural healthy glow. While it must be said that no treatment available today can completely eliminate wrinkles, regular treatment with castor oil will help to keep wrinkles at bay, and to help reduce the formation of wrinkles, keeping you looking younger, longer.
I used this last night as with my fasting my face is starting to wrinkle, yuk. It works wonderfully. You face with fresh, alive and seems whiter, if that was possible. I did not wash it off and just let it set with massaging the oil upwards towards the hairline. I hope this helps you guys with wrinkles.
I use castor oil on my face with this harsh winter air. Taking a brisk winter walk is invigorating but can also be very damaging to skin. I also use castor oil on my hands after work because powdered gloves make my skin crack and bleed. Another good thing I do is smear a bunch of castor oil on my boobs in the sauna and put a little towel over them. It's a Cayce castor oil pack. It's not called the Palm of Christ oil for nothing. It really is a miracle oil (like olive oil).
Some people may get clogged pores from castor oil though. It is only jojoba and emu which won't clog pores.
One thing I use castor oil for is the thickening of eyelashes, and if needed eyebrows. I use the oil 3-4 times a week, at night. If oil accidently seeps into eyes, or very close, you'll have double vision, this is the only side effect. I am amazed, friends are amazed how my eyelashes have grown longer than before, how they thickened. Visible results in 2 short weeks. You actually put the oil on a Q tip, and apply on the roots of lashes, not straight on lashes. Much much cheaper than those overpriced, so-called eyelash growers, like Jan Marini for e.g.
wow, real good tips. I am new to this castor oil. With my juice fast and loosing weight I will wrinkle quickly so that is why I am using this. Actually I intend to get some black seed oil and use that instead but I have not gone to town yet.
Sara, with juice fast you should not wrinkle more quickly. In fact, the opposite. By the time you finish with it, you should look like you've had a face lift. Eating only fruit, and it's juice is very very good for skin. It exfoliates, gives you plenty of vitamin C, restores and boosts collagen. Honest! Plumps up skin. This is for the face. Well, for body, it's a different story. I've ended up with sagging skin, always had firm skin. Well, you know, now I can't remember which designer said, "Ladies, make up your mind. Which would you rather have? A big bum or wrinkles? LOL. I want small bum and smooth beautiful skin!! Oh, well, life isn't perfect.
Take care, Susan
