3 steps to protect your skin from San Antonio’s hot, humid climate

Moisture causes pores to open up, making them prone to collecting dirt, oil

SAN ANTONIO – With warmer weather up to the high 90s, it can be tempting to stay out in the sun for hours to reach that desired tan.

Unfortunately, Texas’ hot and humid weather is not a friend to your skin.

Humidity brings moisture in the air, which causes the pores of the skin to open and makes them prone to collecting dirt and oil. Skin exposed to too much humidity can lead to acne and skin breakouts.

Each climate around the world comes with different humidity levels that can cause potential problems if you don’t protect your skin. Here are three ways you can nourish your skin and ensure it stays firm and smooth.

1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

Replenish your body with water every hour. Once your lips and mouth feel dry it’s time to drink more water.

2. Stay out of the heat.

To be preventative, stay out of the sun during the hottest hours of the day.

As summer months bring more humidity, try to preserve your skin and stay indoors with an air-conditioned room.

3. Use climate-based skincare.
