Dressing to suit the rainy days
The rainy days are gradually setting in and everyone would want to enjoy the much adored season but not without protection and care. There is nothing to worry about. Just like the dry season, the wet season would come, make an impact especially for the largely agrarian communities in Nigeria and then go.
Experts say flu, pneumonia and other illnesses including cough, catarrh and rheumatism are prevalent in the season, hence the need to be well equipped.
Here are some tips to help you to scale through the season.
- Wear something light like yellow, white, orange, light blue but do not wear black, red, violet or purple. These colours absorb sunlight, and light reflect; dark colours will make you hot and sweaty.
- And if you are allergic to the rains and cold, never spare a pull-over, sweater or a cardigan. Always ensure your fashion taste is customised to take in a sweater throughout to give your body the needed warmth and protect you from catching a cold.
-If you don’t want to be drenched in the rain, then ensure you carry an umbrella with you as you step out for the day’s activities.
-For ladies, avoid using too much make-up because it may run off. As the weather changes suddenly, it might be surprising that drops come down immediately and your heavy make-up might just be caught in the rains.
