Humidity is good for your skin!

We are in the final “dog days”of summer, and you may have begun to dream longingly of cooler days already. As one sticky day blurs into the next, you’re wondering when you can say goodbye to this muggy weather. It’s not quite that time yet, but maybe all this humidity is good for your skin!

According to health writer Abigail Libers, there is no one perfect climate for every skin type. We all benefit from sweating out our toxins, which is of course facilitated by a hot, humid environment. The humidity makes your skin cells turn over faster than usual, which for those of us with oily skin means more debris to clog pores and cause breakouts.

To minimize the negative effects of humidity on oily skin, wash morning and night with a gentle cleanser like Smart Cover Makeup Remover & Cleanser. The fruit enzymes exfoliate your skin and fully dissolve the day’s makeup without causing irritation. If you’re looking a little shinier than you’d like, Smart Cover’s Compact Finishing Powder will keep you smooth and fresh-looking, whatever the day brings.

Humidity is good for your skin!

If you have eczema, which can cause dry, itchy and flaky skin, then a humid climate will help your skin retain moisture. This will both help to heal the redness and itchiness, and will also decrease the flaking. Even if you don’t have this condition, but tend to have somewhat dry skin, humidity will prove beneficial to your skin.

For individuals with eczema or psoriasis, Smart Cover Concealing Creme can cover redness (as well as skin concerns from blemishes to scars to tattoos). If you don’t have the luxury of picking up and moving to your skin’s dream climate, at least you know how to care for it so you can always look and feel great.
