SKINCARE

Hey guys, long time no see. Well, in Nigeria, harmattan is here, that means dry scalps, itchy and scaling skin and the whole annoyance that comes with the harsh dry weather. Oh for my non Nigerian reader (Oh yes, I got those) that means winter. So, anyways, with new weather comes the need for a little tweak on skincare, if not a whole change. With the weather becoming dryer, you may need a more intense moisturizer and a milder exfoliator. Some lips scrubs and balms would be great also.
