Remedy for acne – Say goodbye to acne and pimples with castor oil. After you’ve washed your face clean, dip a cotton ball in lukewarm water and dab a drop of castor oil on it. Massage this gently on the pimple. Let it stay overnight and wash your face the next morning with a cleanser.

Moisturize your skin type – To improve and hydrate dry skin, use a mixture of castor oil with sesame oil and massage it gently. Similarly, for normal skin, grape seed oil and castor oil would work great. For oily skin, mix it with jojoba oil.

Hydrate and moisturize lips – Moisturize and exfoliate your lips with castor oil. Do this as part of your beauty night care regime – massage your lips gently with castor oil and sugar. Wash this off the next morning.

Relieve dry, itchy skin – Mix castor oil with coconut oil and apply it all over the affected area. Massage for around 2-3 minutes and let it stay for 20 minutes. Wash thoroughly with cold water. This remedy is also useful in soothing burning skin.

Helps soothe sunburns: Castor oil has potent anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe the pain and discomfort caused due to excess time under the sun. It is also quite hydrating to the skin which also helps soothe the sunburnt skin. These properties also help prevent the peeling of the skin. All in all, massage some castor oil on your skin if you got sunburnt to get some quick relief.

Has anti-aging properties: Castor oil is a rich source of antioxidants which protect the skin from the attack of free radicals. These attacks speed up the aging of the skin which in turn speeds up the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Regular application of castor oil will protect the skin from such attacks and slow down the aging of the skin to a normal level.
