During hot and humid weather, our skin undergoes several significant changes and reactions due to environmental conditions. The combination of high temperatures and moisture in the air affects our skin in various ways. Humid weather stimulates our sweat glands to produce more sweat as a natural cooling mechanism. This increase in perspiration leads to a higher level of moisture on the skin's surface. As a result, the skin may feel sticky and appear shiny due to the accumulation of sweat and sebum.
The humidity in the air hinders the evaporation of sweat from the skin, leaving it feeling damp and often contributing to a clammy sensation. This excessive moisture can also disrupt the skin's natural barrier function, potentially leading to increased water loss and dehydration, especially if not properly hydrated.
Moreover, the combination of sweat, sebum, and environmental pollutants can lead to clogged pores and an increased risk of acne breakouts. The humid conditions create an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive on the skin's surface, exacerbating skin issues for those already prone to breakouts. For individuals with sensitive skin, the heat and humidity may trigger irritation and redness, making the skin more susceptible to inflammation and itchiness.
Proper skincare routines, including gentle cleansing, adequate hydration, and using lightweight, non-comedogenic products, can help manage these challenges and keep the skin healthy and balanced in such conditions.
