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 Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
