Treat your hair and skin this autumn
Now that the clocks have gone back, it is time to start preparing the skin and hair for the onslaught of freezing temperatures and blasts of hot air when we head into shops and offices this autumn.
Getting yourself ready for winter involves looking after yourself from the inside out, so don't neglect your diet. Stock up on nuts and seeds, which are full of vitamins and minerals, while essential fats such as flax seed oil provide the best kind of energy.
The Western Mail reports that what we eat can affect our skin, nails and hair, so avoid straw-like locks by eating plenty of proteins and checking your diet contains enough of vitamins B6, B12, C, iron and folic acid. If you don't eat enough vitamin C, your hair is prone to tangling and breaking more easily.
Protein, B vitamins and iron are "vital in maintaining a healthy blood supply", the newspaper said, "and a deficiency in any of these will limit the supply of oxygen to the hair and scalp, resulting in slower hair renewal".
As well as nourishing yourself inside, pay attention to the condition of your hair and get it trimmed regularly to get rid of the dry ends that tend to split.
You could also try applying a coconut oil treatment once or twice a week to give your locks a moisture injection and make hair look soft, shiny and more manageable.
The newspaper pointed out that when drying your barnet after a shower, avoid combing straight, wet hair directly because strands could be pulled out at the roots. Instead, wick away as much moisture as possible with a towel and use a wide-tooth comb to gently banish tangles, using your other hand to act as a barrier so that you are not pulling on the scalp when you get to a snag.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
