The harmattan season is over and the dry season is around the corner. The dry season is generally attributed to a scorching hot day, warm or even hot night, dry, dusty air and absence of rainfall.
In most cases, the dry season is hot enough to cause so much discomfort and therefore there is need to get prepared for this season in order to stay healthy during the dry season.
- Stay hydrated
During the dry season, you should drink lots of water to stay hydrated. According to a consultant dermatologist, Prof. Frances Ajose, during his interview with Punch newspaper, Nigeria he mentioned that “drinking a lot of water helps to ensure that the skin has enough fluid to replace the quantity lost as sweat and that needed to get rid of the toxins in the body.” Staying hydrated during the dry season enables your skin glow and it also helps your weight loss journey.
- Wear a sunglass
Make sure you have a sunglass in your bag and ensure you wear it because it helps protect your face from the sun. Also, wearing a sunglass will prevent the ultraviolet ray of the sun from damaging some sensitive cells in the eyes, which in the long run could affect the person’s vision later in life.
In addition, the World Health Organization said current scientific evidence suggests that different forms of eye cancer may be associated with life-long exposure to the sun. Therefore, you should always ensure you wear a sunglass to protect your eye from the sun
- Bath more often
One of the ways to stay cool and healthy during the dry season is to bath more often. This will wash away the sweat accumulated during the day which also prevents body odour.
- Avoid using strong soaps and detergents
During the dry season, you should avoid harsh soap and detergents because they can remove oil from your skin. Instead, use a mild soap and detergent during this season.
- Eat a healthy diet
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables during and after the dry season. This will help build your immune system from any kind of illness.
