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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
