A Nutritionist's Guide to Autumn Care

As the crisp autumn air sets in, it’s not just our wardrobe that needs a change; our skin and hair also require extra care and nourishment. As a nutritionist, I’ve witnessed the profound impact that diet can have on our outward appearance. In this article, I’ll explore how to support your hair and skin during autumn, offering valuable insights and practical tips.

Understanding the Seasonal Shift

Autumn brings cooler temperatures and lower humidity, which can lead to dry, dehydrated skin and hair. This season’s challenges can be exacerbated by indoor heating systems and potentially imbalanced diets, making it essential to adapt our nutrition and skincare routines accordingly. Diet plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy hair and skin throughout the year, and autumn is no exception. Here are some key nutrients to prioritize:

Antioxidants: Foods rich in antioxidants, such as fruits and vegetables, combat free radicals that can damage skin cells. Berries, spinach, and…

How technology has changed from one Tokyo Games to the next.

When American Bob Hayes crossed the finish line at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964, winning gold in the Men’s 100 metres, there were two times measured.

The Fermi paradox is one of the most puzzling problems in science. Could solar eclipses have anything to do with it?
