The rising temperatures have led to the increasing use of air conditioners in homes. Spending most of the day in cool and comfortable rooms, you may not realize the negative effects that air conditioning has on your skin and hair. ACs lower the ambient temperature, causing your body to sweat less and preventing toxins from escaping through the skin.
Furthermore, air conditioning reduces your skin’s oil production, resulting in dry and dull skin. This often leads to the need for frequent moisturizing. In addition, ACs remove humidity from the environment, leading to dehydration of skin tissues, which can cause dryness, chapping, and wrinkles.
In addition to affecting the skin, air conditioners can also dry out your hair. Excessive exposure to ACs in the summer months can cause increased frizz, hair fall, split ends, and loss of shine. While it may be difficult to avoid using an AC due to the heat, it is important to take steps to protect your skin and hair from damage.
Here are some tips to protect your skin and hair:
- Limit your exposure to air conditioning by taking breaks, leaving the room periodically, and turning off the AC. If you sleep with the AC on, consider setting it to auto mode so that it turns off once the room reaches a comfortable temperature.
- After turning off the AC, wash your face with water, use a face wash, and apply a hydrating moisturizer. Follow a consistent skincare routine before bedtime to keep your skin nourished.
- When washing your hair, use a hydrating and thick conditioner. Consider using leave-in conditioners for added protection from the air conditioning. Avoid using hair styling tools that can further dry out and damage your hair. Regular oiling can also help maintain hair health.
- Stay hydrated by drinking enough fluids and water throughout the day. It is common for people to reduce their water intake in a cool environment, even when not feeling thirsty. However, the body still requires proper hydration at all times.
