The Ricinoleic Acid in castor oil works to inhibit many viruses and bacteria, and as castor oil is able to penetrate skin tissue deeply, this makes it an effective treatment for acne. Castor oil’s ability to penetrate more deeply than any other essential plant oil make it an excellent way to keep skin looking youthful and fresh.
I do not usually suffer from acne, but on occasion I will feel like my face has a mini breakout, so I usually mix in my hand a drop or two of castor oil, a few drops of coconut oil and place on my face for at least 20 minutes or more. Some people leave it on overnight. For me that’s too long. Then I rinse well with warm water. You can see the difference right away and your skin will feel so smooth.
