How to Use Castor Oil as a Beauty Aid. Castor oil is a highly emollient oil, often used in lipsticks and other beauty aids. Castor oil is the perfect skin care product as it is naturally rich in anti-oxidants and works as a deep conditioner to heal both skin and hair. Because of castor oil's healing qualities, it is often use to soothe skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis and can help to thicken hair and reduce hair loss.
Add a light layer of castor oil to your eyelashes and eyebrows every night before bed. Castor oil is an affordable beauty aid that will help thicken and shine brows and eyelashes, and aid your lashes in growing long.
Make a deep conditioning hair oil and scalp moisturizer with castor oil. Warm a few tablespoons of castor oil in the microwave for just a few seconds. Apply the oil to wet hair and cover with a bath cap, allowing the oil to set for at least 15 minutes before washing as normal. Castor oil is not only the perfect conditioning beauty aid for your hair, it is also a great skin care product that will moisturize your scalp, prevent dandruff and promote hair growth.
Use castor oil as a beauty aid for your hands. Apply a light layer of castor oil to your cuticles and nails every night before bed. Castor oil penetrates deeply into the cuticles, softening them and preventing cracking. The oil will also add a healthy luster to your nails and keep them moisturized to reduce chipping.
Keep your skin soft and supple with the most important skin care product of all; a good moisturizer. A light layer of castor oil will keep your entire body moisturized, and can also reduce painful dry skin, itching and calluses. For dry cracking feet, hands or elbows rub castor oil into the area before bed and cover with a bandage, cloth, socks or gloves. Wash away the oil in the morning with a gentle soap, or for calluses rub the area lightly with a pumice stone.
