Top 5 tips for brighter skin this party season
With Christmas parties coming up left, right and centre, we need to make sure that we're doing absolutely everything we can to look our party best.
One thing that we can do to prepare for the party season is get our skin in tip-top condition.
Facial massage, as well as being ridiculously comforting, can actually help improve the condition of your skin.
It improves circulation, which helps brings more nutrients to your skin - making it look bright and healthy.
"Your face is a complex system of nerves, tissue, blood vessels and lymph nodes. Massaging the face can help improve the appearance of the skin by allowing this complex structure to function better," explained Frances Vincen-Brown, health specialist.
Omega oils and plenty of water
Hydrated skin is the key to healthy and supple skin, as it improves elasticity and gets rid of any blemishes.
Omega is also great at keeping our skin hydrated, as it contains fatty acids that are necessary when it comes to keeping our skin limber.
According to Louise Thomas-Minns, founder of uandyourskin, omega is "vital for defending the skin and for reducing inflammatory skin issues such as ageing, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea".
Rosehip oil/avocado oil
Rosehip oil is favoured among celebrities as the key to staying young.
Not only is it rich in vitamin C and high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids - sworn healers of scar tissures, it’s also a great source of retinoic acid.
Studies have shown that this is the substance which gets rid of fine lines and brightens skin.
Because of its high fat content, avocado oil is also fabulous at alleviating dry skin conditions and keeping the skin looking bright and youthful.
Herbal and nutritional supplements
Antioxidants such vitamins C, E, and A can take back the damage caused by unstable molecules which can cause premature signs of aging.

- 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?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- 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 :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. 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 :)
