Will you adapt your skincare regime this winter?
The onset of colder, winter weather should serve as a prompt to women everywhere to re-evaluate their makeup and skincare regime.
Adapt to temperature shifts
Different temperatures and weather conditions demand a slight change of tack - even if it’s a simple case of locking away your SPF foundation until next year.
However, as most of us already know, skin is more prone to drying out when the wind picks up and nipping into a building after a brisk walk can feel like stepping into a pre-heated oven. Doing this a couple of times a day has obvious repercussions for your complexion.
"When it's hotter it's good to use lighter creams and a higher level of SPF to make sure that your skin stays hydrated and protected," explained AddictedtoBeauty.co.uk contributing editor Zara Stone Rabinowicz. "In winter when the weather tends to be colder, richer creams are great to make you feel nourished."
For sore lips, why not try a hydrating lip balm or rescue anti-viral lip balm to keep your pout pert and soft skin supple.
Be prepared to give your skin a little more care and attention during the winter too. A drier and flakier dermis demands a tougher exfoliation routine .
"Skincare should be adjusted during the year, as different temperatures need different types of attention," Ms Rabinowicz explained.
Anyone with sensitive skin will already know that a change in weather conditions usually means more troublesome itching, soreness and dry patches. Sensitivity can also limit the range of cosmetics you can use to treat these conditions in winter.
Your skin is given some of its roughest treatment during your morning routine - namely when you hop out of the hot shower and into the cold winter air.
Choosing a good rehydrating moisturiser, formulated for sensitive skin, can be key to keeping the worst symptoms of psoriasis, eczema and other conditions at bay.
Look for body lotion with shea butter, babbassu, coconut oil and lemon balm to keep your skin feeling smooth and body feeling supremely healthy, without any worrying itches distracting you throughout the day.

- 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.

If you are looking for something even lower on that scale, you should go for Argan, Rosehip, Grapeseed, Hemp -oil which are 0-1. I hope this helps.
