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 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.
