Four Essential Items You Need To Survive The Harmattan Season
The harmattan season is here, and it is important that one is ready for the season. Harmattan is characterised by very cold temperatures, especially in the mornings and nights, and very hot weather in the afternoons.
The humidity also drops really low and the air is dusty. This means the skin has a tendency to dry up quickly, and the wind can be very assaulting to the respiratory system.
Below are essential materials you need to survive this harmattan.
It is normal to become dehydrated and get thirsty very easily at this time, so avoid carbonated drinks at and juices. Rather, drink at least 1.5 litres of water every day as this will help keep your whole body system working properly.
The weather is usually really bright and hot in the afternoon but could get very cold at night. To be on the safer side, put on warm clothing when going to bed at night or when going out in the mornings. You can loosen up your clothes as the day heats up.

3. Take vitamin C
This will help to reduce the likelihood of you contracting the flu, which triggers symptoms like catarrh. As there is dust and cold everywhere, taking vitamins generally will help combat the negative effects they could have on the body.
4. Moisturiser and lip balm
Let your lip balm and moisturiser be your best friends. Always have a lip balm and moisturiser in your bag, pocket or somewhere easily accessible. Apply the balm on your lip and the moisturiser on the skin when either of them starts to get dry.
It is important that you take care of your skin, your lips, and your entire wellbeing throughout the harmattan season.
