For countries in West Africa and the Gulf of Guinea, the middle of November up until early March is usually a season called harmattan.
This season is characterized by dry and chilly air, dry skin and lips, cracked foot and sometimes palm.
The season often leaves one with very ashy and dry skin.
The best thing to apply to your body this season is a body oil, ranging from natural to different types of oils.

Glycerin oil is a favourite body oil for harmattan.
It is deeply moisturizing and it doesn’t react with the skin.
Glycerin oil is a body oil for harmattan that would also not cause breakouts or clog the pores because of its non-comedogenic nature.
Glycerin oil can be used by all skin types and one wouldn’t be worried about the skin getting lighter or darker.
Glycerin is capable of keeping the skin moisturized all day until you are ready to take your bath in the evening also I recommend glycerin oil as a body oil for harmattan.
A lot of popular and unpopular brands make glycerin oil and you could decide to buy from the brand you can afford.
Coconut oil is a good body oil for harmattan, although it is comedogenic meaning it could cause pimples, and breakouts and clog the pores so I strongly advise against using it on the face.
Coconut oil helps to keep your skin moisturized and in many harmattan seasons, I was using coconut oil and I haven’t had any reason to complain about using coconut oil on my body during harmattan.
Neutrogena oil is a body oil for the harmattan season made by Johnson and Johnson company.
It contains sesame oil and also helps lock in moisture in the skin.
Neutrogena oil can be poured inside your bath water or bathtub or be applied to the body after having a clean bath.
Most of the persons I know that use vaseline revitalizing body oil is dark and chocolate skin types respectively.
This is because it contains cocoa butter oil and a lot of people believe that cocoa butter oil makes the skin darker a lot of people with fairer skin types tend to avoid using it because they feel it could make them darker.
Vaseline revitalizing body oil is a good body oil for harmattan and also, and it is one of the oils that helps the skin to maintain its glow.
This body oil would keep your body moisturized all day during harmattan.
Johnson baby oil is also a product of Johnson and Johnson’s and it is a body oil that could be used for harmattan to prevent dryness, flaking and breaking of the skin.
Johnson baby oil comes in two sizes and its ingredients include paraffin liquidum, parfum and isopropyl myristate.
It shouldn’t be used on the face for skin types prone to breakouts
Just like pears baby oil, Cusson’s baby oil is another affordable body oil that can be used during the harmattan season.
Cusson’s baby oil contains ingredients like mineral oil, perfume and so many more ingredients

Almond oil is another moisturizing oil that could be used on the body during harmattan.
Almond oil can also be used on the face because it is non-comedogenic meaning it is most likely not to cause breakouts on the face.
Almond oil is gotten from the blending and extraction of almond seeds.
Pears oil is one of the most affordable and popular body oils for the skin.
Pears oil is baby oil, but during the harmattan season, it sells so well that a lot of people use it on the body as body oil during harmattan.
I have also used pears baby oil severally and it also moisturizes the skin and wards off dryness that comes with the harmattan season.
Palmer’s cocoa butter moisturizing oil is another oil that can be used during harmattan on the body. Palmer’s cocoa butter moisturizing oil also doubles as a body massage oil and it keeps the skin smooth and soft eliminating any dryness.
You can add palmers cocoa butter moisturizing oil to your bath water for a more moisturizing effect on your skin.
Bio-oil skin specialist oil is a good oil for moisturizing the skin and also eliminating scars, stretch marks and dryness.
