Global skin care tips for your climate

Can’t figure out why your skin care regimen just isn’t producing the results you want? That might be due to the climate we find ourselves in. Many skin care products tend to be formulated for skin types, but skin also reacts to the climate people find themselves in.

Climate changes affect your skin and how it should be cleaned. Knowing how your skin may react in different climates can help determine the proper skin care regimen. There are four types of climates that affect the skin – dry, humid, cold and warm. All it takes to help your skin adapt is a bit of preparation.

Dry climates

Dry climates can dry out the skin and cause certain skin conditions, like eczema, psoriasis and nummular dermatitis to flare up.

Keep your showers short in such a climate, and pat yourself dry.  Long showers can dry out your skin and can cause irritation.  Moisturising after the shower is important as is using a moisturiser within three minutes of your bath or shower to help your skin retain its moisture. Try to avoid water-based lotions that can further dry out your skin.

Humid Climates

Humid climates can cause pores to go into overdrive and leaves the skin prone to breakouts, especially those with oiler skin.  Cleanse your skin of excess sweat and oil at least once a day with warm water and a skin cleanser that won’t clog pores.  Skin care products containing salicylic acid will also help to gently exfoliate your skin.

For those with oily skin, air conditioners like the Electrolux Viva Grande can help to regulate the humidity in your home.  Its vitamin C filter releases stress-reducing and skin-friendly vitamin C particles into the air, helping to preserve the health of your skin in the long run.

Cold Climates

Like dry climates, cold climates can strip skin of moisture and dry it out.  So keep showers short and the water temperature moderate. The Electrolux Allure range of water heaters come with electronic variable temperature controls, ensuring a precise temperature for all showers you take.

Use a moisturising body wash and apply an oil or lotion on your skin to help it retain moisture after the bath.

Warm Climates

Skin reacts differently in different climates, so adjust your skin care regimen accordingly.

In any warm climate, always wear sunscreen with a minimum of an SPF 15 rating. Warm climates can be humid or dry, so do find out whether you’ll need a drying astringent or a moisturising cleanser. If it’s a warm and humid climate, shower more regularly and use a cleanser that contains salicylic acid. If it’s a warm and dry climate, take shorter and cooler showers. Then follow up with a moisturiser afterwards.
