How Weather & Environment Can Impact Your Skin

Skin pollution can occur in any kind of weather or environment. You need to know as much as possible about your climate to  take care of your skin. It’s also helpful to understand why your skin behaves the way it does by season. Only then can you introduce effective anti-pollution skin care products that give you the healthy, youthful glow you deserve.

The Climate’s Effect on Your Skin

The climate in which you live has the potential to cause skin pollution. Different climates can affect your skin, which can lead to a variety of problems. For example, in tropical climates and hot, humid environments, the air has more moisture, which can trigger your skin to produce more oil and sebum. That results in an oily, shiny complexion.

An arid or dry climate produces the opposite results. If you live where the air is dry and hot, then there’s not as much moisture in the air. That can cause your skin to become dull. It can affect your natural radiance.

Seasonal Skin Pollution

Since the climate can impact your skin, it stands to reason that  different seasons can do the same. In most places, spring is a warm season. Humidity begins to creep back into the air following the cool, dry weather of winter. Because of the transition, your springtime skin may be affected by increased oil and sweat production, which can then clog your pores and lead to blemishes.

Summer poses  a similar problem. The weather is warm and inviting—for the most part—but the humidity can wreak havoc on your skin. For spring and summer, the best anti-pollution skin care products will have salicylic acids and other ingredients that help to stem the production of oil and sebum without completely drying out the skin.

Fall seems like it might be more moderate, but that’s not necessarily the case. Although the weather is pleasant, it begins to get colder. As tempting as it is to sit in front of the fire or take hot showers, both of those actions can dry out your skin and potentially damage its surface.

The same thing happens in winter, except that the air is dry, too. It’s cold and dry outside, while inside, the hot air that comes from your heating system can affect your skin. For fall and winter, look for skin care products that hydrate and  moisturize without producing excess oil.

Weather Woes

Regardless of where you live, the weather you encounter can cause skin pollution. Take the sunshine, for instance. Most of us enjoy spending time outdoors in the sun, but the heat and UV rays are awful for your skin. Prolonged exposure can lead to  sunburn and discoloration. There are remedies for sun damage, such as chemical peels and specialized laser treatments, but wearing sunscreen helps, as well. A moisturizer with sunscreen is ideal.

In cold or damp weather, your skin faces problems, too. Typical fall and winter weather patterns are chilly. Fall, in particular, can be rainy. In both of those cases, you may need hydrating products that restore your youthful glow.

If you’re suffering from skin pollution, then Salameh Skin Care has  a product to help you.
