Finally I can blog about something useful. When I was first told about this I had my doubts, but now, well, ok lets see what you think.
The other day while at the grocery store my youngest girl calls and tells me she needs a bottle of Castor Oil and a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Of course being the curious guy that I am, I asked why. She said it was for her face.
For the past couple of years now my daughter has had bad acne along her brow line. She is really embarrassed about it and always wore her bangs down to hide her forehead. We have spent a lot of money buying different facial products to help her out and nothing has worked. She finally got tired of it and took it upon herself to find something that worked.
So being the good dad that I am, I didn't argue with her oil request but I knew and told her you cannot put oil on your face as a cleaner but what do I know, I'm a guy. She corrected me by saying these oils mixed together will break down your skin oil and clean your pores.
This is what she did :
1 teaspoon of Castor Oil
3 teaspoons of EVOO
The dryer your skin is, you add a little more EVOO
The oilier your skin is, you add a little more Castor Oil.
Mix them together and rub on your dry face for one minute using your fingers. Do not wet your face before.
Then place a hot rag on your face to steam your pores.
After that, just wipe off and that's it.
The next day I was curious about how well this worked. She was so excited, every bit of the acne was gone. She said it would take up to three days, but it was a overnight success for her.
Now she wears her bangs back showing that beautiful face off like she should.
I bet you never figured on a post like this in a Rednecks blog hu? I didn't either.
