As much as you love matte lipsticks, this is not the time to have them around. Lip balms are lip savers as they help to keep the lip moisturized, heals and protects the lips from being chapped. It’s extremely important to have at least one in your everywhere bag, another in your house and an extra one.
The harmattan might be cold and breezy but there is nothing cool about a cracked ashy skin. During this period, moisture is lost from the skin faster than usual hence to ensure a healthy skin, it is wise to keep your body oil close as it comes handy. Coconut oil is usually a go-to at times like this because ordinary body lotions and Vaseline might not work the magic.
HAIR OIL/ SERUM
Even our weaves and natural hair needs some attention too. We spend a lot of money on weaves and so during the harmattan, taking proper care of the hair should be priority. The hair serum gives weaves some shine and also helps to lock in moisture. Also note to never leave your hair undone.
Due to the fact that it can be very dry during this season, there is need to exfoliate at least twice in a week to help get rid of all the dead, dry and flaking skin cells. If you can, also invest on a foot scrub as this weather can lead to excessive cracking of the feet.
Water is an ultimate beauty essential, whether in a cold of hot weather. The harmattan season comes with a lot of dryness and a s a result, you need to increase your intake of water so as to stay hydrated.
