Get Emma Stone’s beautiful skin with grapeseed oil
What we wouldn’t give to have a clear, glowing complexion worthy of a silver screen actress. But according to Crazy Stupid Love star Emma Stone, there’s no need to sign away our firstborn or pay an arm and a leg to have blemish-free skin.
The answer lies in simple herbal oils. The 23-year-old told reporters this week that she uses grapeseed oil to moisturise her face and body several times a day to keep her complexion clear and her skin soft and supple.
She told Style.com: "I just use natural grapeseed oil from the grocery store on my face as moisturiser. After the shower, I pat it on, and then I’ll use it throughout the day and at night. I pretty much smell like grape all the time."
Her budget approach works well, as she has appeared in films and on the red carpet with a porcelain complexion with no hint of redness or inflammation - despite the fact that her skin is allergic to "everything".
Grapeseed oil is often used in massage because it works as one of several carrier oils. It is light in texture and almost odourless, leaving the skin feeling smooth but not greasy. It is thought to be good for toning and tightening skin and has mildly astringent properties, so it can be used by those with acne and other skin complaints.
The star of The Help might also be interested in trying herbal shampoo to soothe her scalp as she explained it can get too oily at times.
"I need a lot of moisture for my skin, but not for my hair. I have the opposite problem with my scalp as I do my face," Emma told the website.
Other than her grapeseed oil, the actress said she never leaves the house without her signature mascara.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Dear Fatima, thank you for your message. For your type of skin Almond oil is ok -- its comedogenic level is 2 out of 5, it means it's not going to clog your pores. If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
