Hello People. I am Back!
A very long sabbatical it was and i’m sorry for the break in transmission. It’s like forever since I shared something about Spotless Skin – Secrets Revealed. I had a whole lot of things to wrap up but truly, I am fully back.
This heat is getting unbearable and the truth is I can’t just wait for harmattan to lower the temperature. The sun this days is rated 18+ biko. The harmattan season, which most people dread, can actually be enjoyable with the right routine. Trust me, I know.
It’s a common knowledge harmattan often stresses the skin. So on beauty corner this week, let’s talk about this awesome pill I discovered recently. Don’t worry its not bitter. It’s cheap, easily affordable and totally works wonders.
The magic potion is mother earth’s milk..ok, ok, it’s WATER. Yes!
Water taken in the appropriate amounts can help cushion the effects of harmattan and actually make it enjoyable. For those that can, water therapy during this season can reduce dry lips, thirst and dry itchy skin. I have a easy schedule for my personal therapy that I would like to share with you.
Here it goes:
- Drink 120ml of water immediately you wake up. Do not eat anything one hour prior to and after drinking. If you are starting for the first time, start with about 75ml and then increase it a gradual pace.
- Wait for 45 minutes after meal before drinking water. When you do, drink at least 50ml, an equivalent of 1 sachet of pure water.
- Do not drink soda or soft drinks with meals, and if you must, drink them separately.
- Never go to bed thirsty. If you feel thirsty,satisfy that urge before you go to bed.
NB:The quality of water you drink matters. Please make sure your water source is portable.
A little exercise also helps. I personally prefer a short run because i’m a lazy runner but if you can it is helpful to warm up on a cold morning and get sweaty a bit. It helps to beat the cold and keep fit at the same time.
Europeans will say Winter is Coming. In Nigeria, we say Harmattan is coming.
Till next week on Beauty Corner, stay healthy, stay fresh and stay beautiful.
Short but useful. Don’t forget to drop your comments and questions..
Till then, it’s Au Revoir.
