Use nutritious herbal oils to tackle the first signs of ageing
Want to tackle those fine lines around your eyes and mouth that hint at a few too many late nights? Try using herbal oils to give your skin some much-needed hydration and vitality.
If you baulk at the idea of covering your pimple-prone complexion in heavy oils, rest assured that these natural beauty products are packed full of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, as the Daily Mail reported.
Loraine Murray, natural beauty consultant at Weleda, told the newspaper: "A lot of people fear using oil will cause breakouts and make their skin greasy. But oils can be incredibly beneficial for all skin types - even those prone to spots.
"They can rebalance, moisturise, protect and brighten complexions, and improve texture and tone. Oils can do wonders for hair, especially to repair and condition dry locks or boost thinning tresses," she pointed out.
The kind of oil that will suit you best will depend on your skin type and condition. Argan oil, for example, is great for promoting skin elasticity and leaves it feeling silky and smooth after application. A little goes a long way, so just use a couple of drops on your face before you go to bed and massage it into your skin gently. You could also use it on those dry, chapped lips for some winter relief.
Suffering from dry skin? Use coconut oil to moisturise and hydrate your complexion and address those first signs of sagging. You can even use this product on sore skin to treat eczema, dermatitis and related skin conditions.
Avocado oil is another ideal solution for dry, coarse skin as it contains vitamins A, D and E, which are all essential for glowing, plumped up skin. Sesame oil, on the other hand, is often recommended to people who have normal skin and who want to protect their complexion against pollutants and the sun’s UV rays.

- 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.
