At certain levels, humidity can do wonders for dry skin. As a matter of fact, people with certain skin conditions, such as severe eczema, sometimes move to more humid climates for this very reason. Unfortunately, too much humidity can turn your dry complexion into one that’s sweaty, shiny, and prone to breakouts.
The reason your skin type can change with climate is because sweat and oils tend to stay on your skin longer when there’s a lot of moisture in the air. As such, if you plan on heading somewhere known for warmth and humidity, you may need to switch up your skincare routine slightly. Continue reading for tips on how you can avoid weather-related skin problems:
Just because there’s more moisture in the air doesn’t mean you should avoid moisturizing your skin. It’s important that you moisturize daily using a lightweight product. You can also apply a SPF 15 or greater to help protect your skin from dangerous UV rays.
If you’re in a humid climate and you still have dry skin, look for a gentle, nourishing moisturizer that is non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores). Also use this moisturizer at night to seal in hydration to prevent your skin from drying out while you’re asleep.
Begin and end every day by cleansing your skin to remove excess oil, makeup, and other grime. A cleanser with salicylic acid can be especially useful, since it helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin which in turn helps keep pores clear to minimize blackheads and pimples.
Here at Truly, Teal, we offer a Buena Tierra Cleanser called True Devotion that is formulated with a triple action blend of salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids. Specifically designed for those with oily/breakout prone skin, this cleanser exfoliates and rejuvenates the skin promoting the ultimate clarity and radiance. Even if you don’t typically have oily skin, you may experience it when you are in warmer temperatures.
These two simple steps can help your skin adjust to new weather conditions, especially those that are more humid and hot than you’re used to. No matter what, it’s important to give your skin the best, natural ingredients you can. You can rest assured that all Truly, Teal products have natural formulas that are clinically tested for all skin types. We have eliminated all artificial colors and scents, and only focused on quality products.
