We have all had a phase where we have dealt with acne. Acne is caused mainly due to excess oil production on the surface of the skin. This leads to impurities and dirt clogging the pores that results in inflammations on the skin, i.e., acne.
When the healthy skin tissue is destroyed, the skin is left with acne scars which might seem to be stubborn to get rid off. There are various products available in the market that can treat these scars but here we'll be discussing castor oil as a remedy to remove acne scars.
The Omega-3 fatty acids in castor oil deeply penetrate the skin and thus help in healing scar tissues. It helps in moisturising the skin and regenerates the skin cells. Castor oil detoxifies the skin and also improves blood circulation.
Here are some remedies using castor oil to treat acne scars. Read on.
Castor Oil And Steam
The topical application of castor oil alone can help in reducing the inflammation on the skin effectively.
First, wash your face thoroughly with a face wash or a mild shampoo. Pat dry and steam your face for a few minutes. This will help in opening up the pores.
Now, apply a few drops of castor oil either on the whole face or just the affected areas. Massage it for a few minutes with the help of the fingertips for a few minutes. Leave it overnight and wash it off the next morning.
Castor Oil And Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E along with castor oil diminishes the appearance of acne scars. Take about 3-4 capsules of vitamin E oil. Extract the oil from the capsules and mix it with a tbsp of castor oil. Apply this on the areas where you have acne scars. Leave it on for a few minutes and then you can wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this remedy every day to get rid of acne scars faster.
Castor Oil And Lemon
This is more like a scrub that will help in exfoliating the dead skin cells and thus lightening the skin. The citric acid in lemon helps in brightening the skin. All you need to do is add 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice and 1 tbsp of castor oil in a clean bowl. Mix both the ingredients well. With the help of a cotton ball, apply this mixture on the affected areas. Let it stay for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off with normal water.
Castor Oil And Coconut Oil
The antioxidants in coconut help in rejuvenating and thus healing any kind of inflammations
and scars on the skin. In a clean bowl, add a few drops of coconut oil and castor oil. Mix both the oils well and apply it on the affected areas and gently massage for 1-2 minutes. Let it stay for another 15 minutes. Later, you can wash it off with warm water.
Castor Oil And Lavender Oil
This combination will help in soothing the skin and will reduce inflammations and scars on the skin.
Combine 1 tsp castor oil and a few drops of lavender oil. Apply this mixture on the acne scars and massage gently. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and later you can wash it off with water and pat dry. You can also do this every day before going to bed for faster results.
