Castor Oil for Wrinkles
Last updated on October 9, 2011
One of the oldest treatments for aging skin is castor oil. Even the ancient pharaohs in Egypt used it on their skin. In modern times, many people use castor oil without realizing it, because it is a popular ingredient in commercial skin moisturizers and other products. If you are looking for an effective anti-aging treatment, then castor oil for wrinkles is one of the best and most affordable options available.
When castor oil is applied to the skin it moisturizes and prevents dryness. Moisturized skin looks younger and fresh. Wrinkles will become more pronounced if the skin dries out.
Another reason that castor oil is beneficial for skin health is because it improves the circulation of the skin when it is applied. Improved blood flow allows the skin to get more oxygen and nutrients which help to prevent the signs of aging.
When you are using cold pressed castor oil, there are antioxidants available to fight free radicals in the skin cells. Free radicals have been linked to wrinkles, so castor oil is a great way to reduce and prevent wrinkles.
How to Apply Castor Oil
The best way to prevent and treat wrinkles with castor oil is by washing your face as normal and then applying the oil directly on your skin. It will soak into the skin and most people do not experience an oily skin surface after using the oil. Be sure to cover the wrinkled areas the best, focusing on areas such as the eyes, mouth, neck and forehead.
