LEARN HOW HEAT + HUMIDITY CAN AFFECT YOUR SKIN

LEARN HOW HEAT + HUMIDITY CAN AFFECT YOUR SKIN

It’s been said that women don’t perspire, they glow. And when it’s humid outside, that glow gets ever so much stronger. But humidity is not all about streaked makeup and damp brows.


Here is the 411 on humidity: the good, the bad, the glow, and the oil.


The good: If you suffer from dry skin or eczema, your skin may find great relief during the humid summer months. The dampness in the air will help skin retain moisture and redness and itching will disappear. You can use a lighter moisturizer and even use soap rather than body wash. You can’t help but sweat in humid weather, but this is good for your skin too, clearing out pores and washing away toxins. All great benefits, unless you tend to be oily or break out.


The bad: For oily skin, humidity is not a walk in the park. The humidity causes your skin cells to turn over more quickly. Usually a good thing, but in this case, that just means more debris to clog pores and cause pimples and blackheads. Plus, with all that moisture on your skin, you can’t help but feel…and look…oilier. Your t-zone may be particularly slick in humid climates.


The solution: If humidity brings out an unwanted glow, you can fight back and prevent blemishes from ruining your summer. Try a product with 2% salicylic acid like, which works to remove excess oil and dirt in blemish prone pores. Before applying makeup, use a light serum that is formulated to keep skin naturally hydrated, without an oily feel. Carry blotting papers during the day to remove the slick before it can do any damage, and rest assured that the humidity won’t last forever. Before you know it, you will be complaining about the cold air.
