How can summer weather impact your skin?

Long, sunny days are great for our mood, but they pose a challenge for our skin. We need special skin care during the summer to adequately counter the effects of hot air and humidity.


Here are some of the ways the summer weather impacts our skin:

  • The sun is much stronger during the summer, causing redness and burns and requiring stronger UV protection.
  • Humidity is higher, requiring lighter moisturizers.
  • High temperatures and moisture in the air open the pores, making the skin more susceptible to damage from oxidants – hence, the need for a higher concentration of antioxidants.
  • Higher humidity increases sebum production, leading to greasy skin and acne breakouts and requiring more frequent exfoliation and cleansing.
  • Warm weather dictates more frequent leg shaving, which can result in irritated skin, ingrown hairs, and razor burns. Laser hair removal may be a better option.
