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.

- 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 :)
