Drinking water is like giving your skin a drink from the inside.

Harmattan can be dehydrating, so make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

This helps your skin stay moisturised and free from dryness.

2. Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise

When the air is dry, your skin needs a little extra love. Use a good moisturiser to keep your skin soft and supple.

Apply it after showering and before bedtime. Don’t forget areas like elbows and knees that can get extra dry.

3. Gentle Cleansing

Washing your face is essential, but during Harmattan, it’s best to use a gentle cleanser.

Harsh soaps can strip away the natural oils in your skin, leaving it feeling even drier.

Opt for a mild cleanser to keep your skin clean without over-drying it.

4. Protect From The Sun

Even during Harmattan, the sun can be strong. Apply sunscreen to exposed skin, especially on your face, before heading outside.

This helps prevent sunburn and protects your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

5. Dress In Layers

Wearing layers can help shield your skin from the cool breeze. Use light, breathable fabrics that cover your arms and legs.

This not only protects your skin but also keeps you warm during chilly Harmattan mornings and evenings.
