Sunflower Oil is Great for the Skin. I have always used the popular brand facial scrubs because areas of my face seemed rough and the scrub helped but as I read up on Sunflower oil I gave it a shot and it seems to be working for me. It's nice when you can make your very own products because you know exactly what you are putting in them. Store bought products are a thing of the past as well as the hard to read ingredient list. Which leads me to the following:
Sunflower has many medicinal and cosmetic uses and may be helpful if you are suffering from acne, eczema, inflammation, general redness and irritation of the skin. It's also a great product to use on your newborn baby. When using sunflower oil as a cleanser, try combining it with castor oil (another type of healthy, skin enriching oil), to give your skin suppleness and remove dead cells and impurities. When using it as a cleanser, the combination of castor and sunflower oil should not typically require any additional moisturizing, as the oils themselves contain fatty acids and vitamins to moisturize your skin.
