WEATHER CONDITIONS & UVA/UVB RAYS
Dry skin is more common in colder and drier climates and during the autumn and winter months when humidity levels are relatively lower. During warmer summer months, higher levels of humidity help stop your skin from drying out and losing its moisture.
Humidity and temperature levels indoors can affect your skin’s ability to retain moisture too. When cold, dry air is heated inside it causes the water in your skin to evaporate, which can lead to skin dryness.
It’s also important to keep skin protected from everyday sun damage. UVA rays, including long UVA rays, reach deep into the skin and can accelerate the signs of photoageing, while UVB rays trigger sunburn and damage your skin’s top layers.
