I'm on my first week on castor oil for my age spot on my cheek and I have to tell you guys that it is indeed vanishing. I guess a week or two more I wont be seeing this age spot again.

Thank you so much for the tip!

I am 43 years old and I have begun to develop strange brown raised bumps on my hands and arms. I began applying pure castor oil on the most obvious spots. They were much lighter by the next morning. When I repeated the application this evening, I had to struggle to find the spots.

I am now going to do the same to all spots on my chest and legs.

I have read that castor oil (hexane free) is a great cure for many things. I used it in my hair for the first time this evening, and started using it as eyedrops for my dry eye as well. The eye is not clearing up as fast as the skin, but the irritation in my eye has stopped.

I'm in my late 30s and a few years ago, after my first pregnancy, I started get a number of small sun/age spots/freckles on my face. About a year ago, I got two on the top of my checkbones under my eyes, where my glasses rest. They are big in comparison and made me look much older than I am (at least to me!) Ive been very hesitant to use any medical or chemical procedures - prescriptions, laser treatments, etc. I read here and on one other site about caster oil and thought Id give it a shot before spending way too much money on natural beauty products on the market (one was for over $40, vs the $5 castor oil!). Its been a little over a week now, dipping a cotton swab into the oil and applying twice daily after washing my face. I rub it in a little and wait about 10 minutes before applying daily or nighttime lotion. The spots have lightened DRAMATICALLY! I barely have to use any coverup on them when before I had to cake it on. I cant wait to see what they look like in a month! My skin where i have used it is looking much better, too, although I cant quite pinpoint why - smaller pores, tighter, fewer lines...not sure yet. Ive started using it on my "worry crease" between my eyebrows and have also noticed a difference!

Thanks, Alyson
