Protect your skin:

Harmattan winds can be very dry and can cause your skin to become dry and cracked. Use a moisturizer or lotion to keep your skin hydrated. Apply lip balm to prevent dry and chapped lips. Consider using a humidifier in your home to add moisture to the air.

Cover up:

Wear lightweight, long-sleeved clothing to protect your skin from the dry winds. Choose fabrics that are breathable but can provide some barrier against the dust. A scarf or a face mask can also protect your face from the dust.

Stay hydrated:

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated during the harmattan season. The dry winds can cause increased evaporation from your body, leading to dehydration. Carry a water bottle with you and make it a habit to drink water regularly.

Protect your eyes:

Harmattan winds can carry dust and sand particles that can irritate your eyes. Wear sunglasses or protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the dust. If you wear contact lenses, consider switching to glasses during this season.

Keep your home clean:

Clean your home frequently to remove dust and dirt that may accumulate due to the harmattan winds. Use damp mops or cloths to minimize the spread of dust particles while cleaning.
