Castor Oil: What is it?
Castor oil is a very thick oil obtained by pressing castor seeds. It is yellow or clear in color and has a distinctive odor from the beaver’s perineal glands. For this reason, it is also called “castor oil. It is a grandmother’s medicine that is particularly noted for its efficacy. It is readily available at pharmacies and parapharmacies. Many herbal medicine stores carry it, and it can also be purchased online. Ideally, choose pure castor oil to enhance its effectiveness and avoid the risk of allergies. To be sure of its purity, look at the INCI (list of ingredients) on the package; the INCI should contain only one element, “Ricinus Communis Seed Oil.
Characteristics and Properties
Rich in vitamin E, castor oil is very effective and has several similarities to keratin, as it strengthens hair from the roots up, even though it contains no protein. In particular, castor oil, due to its restructuring and strengthening properties, protects and strengthens hair, eyelashes, and nails, eliminates split ends, is effective in fighting dandruff, and has the advantage of being a 100% natural product. However, it is essential not to overdo anything and to avoid contact with oil droplets in the delicate areas of the eyes and face. If irritation occurs in the sensitive areas around the eyes, it is recommended that the treatment be stopped immediately. The use of castor oil on eyelashes and eyebrows is not recommended during pregnancy or lactation.
Castor Oil for Longer, Thicker Lashes
If you start treating your lashes with castor oil, remember that your perseverance will eventually be rewarded with stronger, thicker, and longer lashes. Castor oil should be applied to a clean face after cleansing.
If makeup is left on the lashes, it will not penetrate well. After removing makeup, moisten your lashes with a small amount of water. Moistening will allow the castor oil to penetrate deeper and strengthen the lashes.
Now sprinkle a few drops on your upper and lower lashes and avoid blinking for a few minutes. This will allow the oil to be absorbed perfectly! To apply, dip an old mascara brush into a bottle and apply on your lashes.
However, after use, store it carefully covered with a toothbrush shell to prevent dust from collecting. If you want to wash your old mascara box well, castor oil can be added to make it very easy to apply. To ensure that mascara marks are removed, simply soak the case in warm water for a few hours. If you prefer, you may use a cotton swab instead of a brush to spread it on. The oil may get into your eyes this way. If your eyes or face feel hot, rinse well with lukewarm water.
The best time to apply is in the evening (every night!), before bed is ideal. This way, the castor oil will work throughout the night, and you will see the first results after 2 weeks, and after 6 months, you will enjoy the thicker, longer, and stronger lashes you have always dreamed of, with optimal results.
