Slowly we are transitioning into that season characterised by cool, dust-laden wind and extreme dryness. The harmattan which occurs between the end of November and the middle of March can be very harsh to one’s health.

Our bodies note the weather changes and react accordingly. Some of the effects of the harmattan include dry skin (because of the obvious loss of moisture), cracked lips, sole of the feet and even the skin itself (cracks even become ulcerated).

Below are three health tips to keep in mind during the harmattan season.

What's in this guide?
