Wearing a face mask 24/7 has taken its toll on our skin and the summer hasn’t even started. The combination of Arizona’s dry heat, UV rays, and air conditioning makes your skin work twice as hard to stay healthy.
How does the Summer Heat Affect Your Skin?
Hot temperatures and excess sweating increase water loss in your body, leading to dehydration. Lack of water prevents your body from flushing out harmful toxins and can cause your skin to lose its plumpness and elasticity. In addition, dehydration can lead to dryness, flakiness, discoloration, premature aging, and sagging skin.
