Hammattan Glam

Hammattan season is here again!

The dry, dusty, relatively humid weather that runs from November to March, or there about. (My geography hasn't been updated yet x_x).

The season comes with running nose, cracked lips and dusty skin.


Due to the dryness and harshness of the harmattan weather, you should be mindful of what you wear and also pay more attention to your skin to avoid cracking a skin.

The skin can be kept healthy by moisturising, moisturising and more moisturising,and also wearing weather-friendly dressing and protective cloths such as sweaters, caps, socks, covered shoes and blankets that can prevent them from being exposed to cold.

To avoid cracking, always ensure you constantly apply lip gloss on your lips. Your eyes also needs to be protected, since the eyes are directly exposed to the harsh weather especially the dust particles carried by the wind, so to reduce exposure to dust, protective spectacles are advocated.

When it comes to clothing, during the day it is hot so pack lightweight layers in natural fabrics, such as linen and cotton that will keep you cool and are easier to wash and dry. Keep to light, neutral colours but not white - as it will get dirty and dusty very quickly. Avoid blue or black clothing - the tsetse flies are drawn to these colours, and their bite can give you African Sleeping Sickness. And don't forget a safari hat or cap to protect you from the sun. Pack a couple of scarves or shawls, as there will often be times when it will be necessary to cover your head.

Now you know this ;), enjoy “your fabulously smooth and sleek” hammattan season. Happy new year :D
