Beat the Humidity: Skincare Tips for Hot & Humid Climates
Your e-mail has been sent to the receipient
A little humidity can be a good thing for keeping your skin soft and hydrated. But when the water in the air tops 50 percent or more, it can leave your complexion sweaty and shiny and can even lead to breakouts.
You may be surprised to learn that you do not actually perspire much more when the humidity is high, but that sweat simply stays on your skin longer because it does not evaporate into the air as quickly. When sweat hangs around, it can result in blocked pores. Plus, humid air can stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, giving skin an oily appearance. Eventually the combination leads to more frequent breakouts.
