Acne– Acne is caused due to a range of genetic to hormonal and from environmental to psychological factors. It is usually attributed to the excess secretion of sebum from sebaceous glands, which become active as both genders reach puberty.
Steps to follow for curing acne problems:
- Wash the infected part of the skin with lukewarm water so that it cleanses and opens up the pores. Then splash the infected part with cold water, which constricts them to the original form. If it’s your face then wash with warm water, then follow by cold.
- Take a clean cloth of soft surface and dampen with lukewarm water. Add to this moistened cloth two drops of castor oil. Dab this cloth with castor oil on your skin with circular motions. If you need more then you may add more drops of castor oil to dampen the cloth. Apply with caution on primary acne breakout zones as they may irritate the already inflamed skin.
- The application has to be left overnight so that castor oil can work its magic. Your skin shall absorb the amount of moisture that is required and the oil shall bind the dirt particles that were causing harm. In the morning, gently cleanse your skin and notice the difference in your skin.
- By using this application regularly, three to four times a week, you shall see visible results.
Caution if your skin feels irritated, discontinue use. But, this happens very rarely and this magic application is not right for you.
Overall, Castor oil is very beneficial and is used in many soaps and creams. It is also an important ingredient in hair care products because of its moisturising capacity.
