It’s November and that signifies the start of the harmattan season here in Nigeria. Folks in Kano will tell you it’s already here. What with the temperature getting as low as 17° and wind speeds as fast as 18Km/hr. The haze is already settling down on the city proper and the chill Urrgghh!! A lot of brothers are already starting to miss Subh prayers (unfortunately).

Now back to the issue at hand. This post is going to educate us on some tips to help us manage through the season comfortably.
Harmattan season comes with a very dry air that keeps the body dehydrated. It’s advisable to drink lots of water and always have a bottle close by. Also take sips even when not feeling the thirst as that will help keep the body afloat.
2. Lip Balm
The sun, the dry air and the cold dries up our lips and make them crack. Believe me you don’t want to know what that feels. Prevention is better than cure. You don’t want to hear a very good joke and be Hihihihihi,
3. Sock up
Yes, sock up. The first sign of a dirty feet are cracks; what with people having cracks large enough you can slip ATMs inside. The small dirts on our feet crack the already dried skin. And those cracks can be a bitch when you are walking. If you see people walking with a strange swagger this season, that’s crackswagger.
4. Cover up
Yeyy! Its that time of the year when you wear those beautiful cardigans you got at KW. The season of decency is here. All those slay queens, slay Mama’s have to find a new angle to their slaying.
Grab that beautiful cardigan or sweater and put those thick pants on. Join them with a hat for the sun or shades as the sun get very bright in the mornings. Find some gloves for your hands you’ll thank me later.
5. Stay clean
A lot of guys need to see dead insects near their armpit to take baths. Brother please!! There is no shame in missing one day or two, but two weeks?😱 Whaaatttt?? No wonder some guys don’t need mosquito coils to kill mosquitoes. Their odor is insect repellent.
Staying clean keeps the head cleared and the mind focused.
#Afterthought, keep a mentholated balm close by as stuffy nose is a regular occurrence during the days and especially at night.
