I learned something new today
So today I sold a customer a pair of glass single flared plugs to stretch her earlobes with. As i do with a lot of customers I asked her what she used to moisturize her ear lobes. It seems that everyone has their own favorite product and so I kind of like hearing what other people like. She told me she was using castor oil. I am not familiar with this oil at all, and so I looked it up on line and learned that it's a vegetable oil made from the castor bean. I also learned that castor oil is very penetrating on your skin, has anti-inflammatory properties and is very good at generally moisturizing your skin. It's supposedly in a lot of cosmetics and beauty products. I personally have been using emu oil for a few years now on my ear lobes, but Ive heard of using all sorts of things like vitamin E oil, jojoba oil, grape seed oil, plain lotion, baby oil, coconut oil, ect... I think I might grab some from cvs and give this stuff a try.
