We all know this well, sun exposure is a major cause of dry skin in the country. I dread my daily commutes! Especially during the summer season, the sun’s strong ultraviolet (UV) radiation penetrates my skin damaging it beyond the top layer. I always go home not only with dry and haggard skin, but extra tired and drained.
But aside from the hot weather, did you know that staying in and locking yourself in your room or office with the AC in full swing can also cause skin dryness? It’s not the best summer game plan after all!
Long and extended exposure to the cool blast of your aircon takes away the moisture and natural oils from our skin. Colder is not always better! Plus, the aircon sucks a room’s humidity, leading to a dry feeling that can cause lack of moisture to the skin, sore throat, chapped lips, etc.
- Hydrate! Drink lots of water by bringing your own jug in the office.
- Use plants and water in open containers. These effectively reduce a room’s dryness, but do make sure to regularly water the plants and change the water in the containers to keep everything clean.
- Hydrate… your skin! From experience, I enjoy using the Olay Body Wash because of its nice scent. It also provides deep moisture to my skin that lasts up to 24 hours.
Few weeks ago, Cosmo.PH created a poll asking women what they think is the biggest culprit of dry skin. View the results here. To prove that the Olay Body Wash provides #MoistureTheLasts, Olay invites you to SWAP your non-P&G soaps for the new Olay Moisture Outlast Body Wash (200ml) on March 28, 10am-6pm in Robinsons Place Manila, Midtown Atrium! Excited to see the difference myself!!!
