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 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 :)
