Hello beautiful people! Our Nigerian weather can be really harsh. What’s with the scorching sun and the dusty winds and worse during the harmattan season there comes reduced temperature and very dry winds, bringing with it dry skin, dry scalp, brittle dry hair and chapped lips . It is therefore important as a Nigerian to be aware of our weather changes and take good care of our skin.
Here are SIMPLE ways to keep your skin looking supple and healthy:
1. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! and Hydrate!!
Yes, drink lots of water. Drinking water helps to flush toxins out of the body. Research has shown that drinking enough water during the day makes the skin look less tired as opposed to not drinking enough water. Aim to drink at least eight glasses of water in a day this is because the hot Nigerian sun tends to cause one to lose a lot of water in form of sweat and it is only wise to replace this water or don’t you think so? Okay then if you do, start helping your skin.
2. Moisturize your skin
Moisturize with natural skin products that do not dry out the skin such as our whipped shea butter made with selected natural herbs and natural oils to keep your skin supple in our harsh weather and thank me later. Also people tend to forget their lips. Moisturize your lips with our natural lip balm for that extra smooth lips designed for you to keep dry chapped lips at bay. Don’t also forget to moisturize your feet, especially the soles of your feet with our peppermint feet balm because the sole of the feet is one of the driest and hardest part of the skin, it is not immune to dry weather.
