Castor Oil got rid of my Melasma.

I just wanted to pass along something that might help others.  Castor oil has worked like magic on mine.  I just put a thick coating of it on the area at night. (also wanted to add that I think my Biotin supplement might have been the cause of the melasma. I am not certain on this, though. Hopefully that helps someone else who can't figure out why they have it.)

I have done some research online since this time and I cannot find anyone else who has had success using castor oil.. Before the castor oil, I had gotten off biotin and birth control, so my results may have been a product of everything finally balancing out, versus results from castor oil. I don't want anyone to have false hope, which is why I am posting this. If I could remove the post, I would, but that is not possible. Good luck to you all.

If you put a thick coating on your face at night, then doesn't it get rubbed off on the pillow? Unless if you are sleeping on your back whole night long. I am sure the oil doesn't get absorbed into the skin.

I just had to put it on my upper lip. I mostly sleep on my back, but when I turned over, I put my arm under my pillow and positioned my head in a way so that part of my face didn't touch the fabric.

I saw a difference after just one night.

How could you have seen a difference in one night? This really worked? I'm tired of spending money and hoping that some cream or serum will work -

How long did it take before the melasma faded?  Very interesting.
