Dusty wind chapped lips, dry skin, are prominent features of the Harmattan season. The weather as it is, is extremely harsh on our skin. And for you as a fashion and beauty conscious woman or man, since beauty is not particular to women alone, you should understand that when the temperature changes, so should your beauty routine. Your hair and skin react differently to cooler climates, so you need to redefine your regimen to get the results you want to see. If you want to adapt when the weather gets colder, take note of these harmattan beauty tips to keep your skin and hair looking beautiful.

Harmattan Skin Care

Cold weather means indoor heating which will have an adverse affect on your skin. To combat the drying affects, switch to a heavier moisturizing cream to add much-needed hydration. Lock in moisture by applying your moisturizing cream while your face is still wet. Even though the weather is so cold and you are tempted to take a hot bath in the morning, avoid baths and showers that are too hot.. Your skin will retain more moisture this way and you won’t go through the temperature shock so much when you get out. Rub in body lotion on your arms and legs and feet, particularly on your elbows and knees. Use eye cream at night to combat dryness. If you do this on a regular basis, you’ll probably notice

It's a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Get your beauty sleep to lower stress and put your best face forward

Homemade Body Scrub

If your hands, feet and elbows are dry, this homemade body scrub will get them back in shape and give you a soothing relief: Mix a half cup of Epsom salts, one tablespoon olive oil and a few drops

of lemon, lime, grapefruit, or orange juice. Apply to the dry areas of your skin, rub gently in a circular motion, then rinse off.
