It’s no secret that everyone wants their skin to be healthy and attractive. But what if the environment in which you’re trying to make yourself presentable is too humid? Humidity can be bad for the skin, and studies have shown (and air conditioning companies agree) that not only is indoor air riddled with pollutants, it’s also more humid.
In this post, All Seasons, Inc., discusses how the indoor humidity level of your home can affect your skin.
High Humidity Levels
High humidity levels can be damaging to your skin because the increased amount of water in the air promotes high oil levels. This can lead to the development of blemishes and ongoing acne issues due to the excess oil on your face, which is more sensitive to changes in the environment than any other part of your skin. While investing in skin care products may help, the best thing you can do to solve this problem is to address it at its root. Contact one of your local air conditioning or furnace companies or purchase a dehumidifier to rectify the issue of high indoor air humidity.
Low Humidity Levels
On the other hand, when low humidity levels are at play, your skin is likely to quickly become dehydrated, leaving you with cracked, parched skin and chapped lips. Chronically low humidity leads to dry skin, which accelerates the aging process, increases wrinkles and makes your skin more prone to scratches and injuries. As suggested above, you can have a heating and cooling expert investigate your indoor air to troubleshoot humidity issues.
