Softer Skin With Grapeseed Oil: Why Emma Stone Is Right
Beauty Tip Today just featured actress Emma Stone in our Tuesday post about Revlon's new PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Foundation.
And now, the 23-year-old 'It' girl is making beauty headlines once again.
Emma Stone has revealed to Style.com this precious nugget:
"I just use natural grapeseed oil from the grocery store on my face as moisturizer.
"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."
The pretty redhead also uses Burt's Bees Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum on her ultra-sensitive skin - which she says, is allergic to everything.
We believe that Emma Stone might be on to something. She DOES have a nice, clear peaches and cream complexion. And okay, most women have very smooth skin at the young age of 23. But there IS something to grapeseed oil, besides it being an inexpensive and natural product for about $3.00.
Let's dig a little deeper.
Grapeseed oil is made by cold-pressing the grape seeds, after they have been used to make wine.
Grapeseed oil, which you can find in your grocery aisle, is a super anti-oxidant. And it is rich in these essential and non-essential fatty acids: linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, a-linoleic acid, and palmitoleic acid – all of these are key to healthy skin and a healthy body.
Grapeseed oil is light in texture and easily absorbed by the skin. In other words, it's an oil that WON'T just sit on the top of your complexion.
Emma says the oil keeps her skin pimple-free, and this is why-- It helps fight acne due in part, to its content of polyphenols, which feature anti inflammatory properties, and also because grapeseed oil helps to clear out the pores.
Grapeseed oil doesn't really have a scent, so we're not sure why Emma claims she smells like grape. Just a little humor from the star, we figure.
And we're just saying, we bet that many women will be picking up a bottle of grapeseed oil today. And instead of putting it in the kitchen cupboard, the oil will probably find its way into the bathroom cabinet.
