Put off frowns and furrowed brows—and the resulting expression lines—with a healthy dose of aromatherapy, says Ayurvedic guru Pratima Raichur: “Smell is the ancient root of emotions and can balance the mind and body.” To treat ailments like anxiety, poor digestion, and insomnia, for example, she suggests rubbing essential oils such as orange, neroli, geranium, and lemon between your palms; cup your hands around your nose and inhale deeply for instant relaxation.

Applying essential oils directly onto the face can also be beneficial, says holistic skin care expert Tata Harper, who lists calendula oil and lavender extract as powerful collagen promoters.

For her part, model Chanel Iman covers her skin with an essential-oil blend each night before bedtime. “It’s amazing—it makes the face and body so beautiful and glowing,” she says. “Right after a bath, I rub it all over, and it gets me into that zone of going to bed and sleeping well.”
