 According to Leiania House of Beauty, having long lashes and lovely eyebrows are sexy. Do you agree? I mean it's not like something that is unknown to the most of us. While we have these mascaras and eyebrow palettes ready for grabs to achieve glamorous eyes, it is still important to really take care of these precious hairs for that naturally long lashes and gorgeous brows.

If you are a beauty junkie like me, you've probably heard what Castor Oil is and what it is for. If not, then I tell you, you are missing a simple traditional beauty remedy that's cheap and easy to get from online shops like Leiania House of Beauty. So, what's the catch? Why are skin care junkies like me make a big fuss about Castor Oils?

First, what is Castor Oil? Castor Oil is a pale yellow oil obtained from castor beans, used as a purgative and a lubricant and in manufacturing oil-based products. But this medicinal concoction is more than just that. You might hate this forever once taken orally, but you should know that there are lots of uses that you can obtain from it without you tasting it.

Castor Oils might be forgotten due to the number of products nowadays that are more convenient to use but there are still lots of brands (especially hair care products) that incorporate the use of Castor Oils just because they are proven to be amazing for hair and skin use with its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties with lots of vitamins, minerals and is high in Omega 6 essential fatty acids that provides protection and nourishment for the hair. No wonder why it's been widely used for skin and hair care routines up to this date.


Pure and raw castor oils are beneficial on its own (minus the harmful chemicals)! Anyway, here's a short breakdown of the basic uses of Castor Oil for our skin and hair which I have been experimenting these days!

1. IMPROVES HAIR GROWTH.

Castor Oils are widely in-demand because of its primary and infamous capability to increase and improve hair growth. And by hair growth, it meant your mane, you lashes and brow. While you are feeling hopeless with that short lashes and accidentally stripped brows, know that you have a backup here! Just apply a drop of the oil to these parts everyday, preferably every night and see the results after weeks of continuous use! Just let it stay overnight and allow the oil to soak in and work its wonder on your skin and hair!

2. REDUCES PUFFY AND TIRED EYES.

Say bye to the power of concealers when you have castor oil (or at least your demand for concealers will be minimized) because it helps you reduce tired and puffy eyes so you wake up with a fresher-looking and well-rested eyes. I guarantee you that this works for me! When you apply it on your brows and lashes, include the eye area too and you can skip off eye creams just like that!

3. HAIR AND SCALP TREATMENT.

Castor Oils in my research has the thickest consistency among other oils, thus, felt greasy when applied to skin surface. I know, dear, you want to avoid that greasy hair feels that weigh down your hair's volume but I've got a better idea for this: mix sufficient castor oil with your hair treatment, massage through hair and scalp, leave it jut as long as you ant and rinse! There you go, dear, enjoy your dandruff-free scalp and soft hair! Easy peasy, right? Do this at least twice a week and see how much your hair grows inches in only a short period of time!

4. SKIN MOISTURIZER/SOFTENER.

Castor Oils are humectant, meaning they seal in moisture on your skin making it a good moisturizer especially to dry skin. I personally use this every night on my hands and feet where I have the driest skin. All you have to do is squeeze a few drops and apply the oil to the parts where you need moisturizing. Just don't over-squeeze and end up with greasy skin. You don't want it on a super hot weather, do you?

5. RELIEVES CALLUSES.

When applied topically, Castor Oils can relieve calluses and other uncomfortable skin feeling. Just rub and massage sufficient amount to affected areas for a period of time and notice how it soothes the skin and alleviate bumps and make them disappear over time.

6. SOOTHES DRY LIPS.

I never knew Castor Oil works great for the lips until I ran out of my favorite lip balm that I use overnight to repair my dry and chapped lips that's been acting up so badly this summer. So I was massaging some to my lashes and brows and I don't want to waste the oil so what I do is apply it on my moisture-hungry lips, making sure I never taste it. The next day, I was surprised to see that my lips felt smoother and softer--felt like I had my lip balm on overnight! Amazing!

7. ACNE TREATMENT.

With its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Castor Oil helps relieve deep cystic acne. Just pat an ample amount of the oil on affected area and leave it overnight. I know, you may be skeptical about trying this technique out since usually, oils aren't really friendly to breakouts. Believe it or not, I am, too, myself. But it's only through trying that you figure out it really works!

8. HEALS SPLIT ENDS.

As a DIY hack, yes, you can actually mix Castor Oil to hair treatment but you can also apply it directly on you hair ends in very small amount after you rinse your hair. In fact, it can be an alternative to leave-on conditioners. The oil penetrates through the hair strands making sure your ends stays more beautiful and stronger than ever! As a result, you get less breakage and hair fall.

9. NAIL MOISTURIZER.

Having weak and dry nails mainly results from too much mani-pedis. Don't be afraid to take a break and treat your nails with some moisturizing oils like Castor Oil to bring back that smooth, strong nails that looks amazing even when bare!
