Summer is officially here, CGs! We know you're super excited to don your bikinis and your floppy hats and get away from all the stress of work. But before you do, you need to make sure you're ready for one of the biggest culprits for dry skin.
Last week, we asked you to tell us what you think it is. Out of the 390 responses:
57% voted that the biggest contributor to dry skin is either the summer heat or the overwhelming pollution we battle on our way to and from work;
About 43% figured that the element we're talking about is the ever present AC.
If you're one of the 43% of people who voted for that last option, then congratulations! You know your skin well! It's true that air conditioning can cause dry skin as much as the sun could— even indoors. Various studies have proven that constant exposure to airconditioning (much like that cold blowing monster in your office) can bring cold stress which reduces your skin's blood flow. This is your body's way of heating you up when your environment is super cold and therefore, dries up your skin at almost the same rate as the sun's summer heat.
Now that you know what's keeping your skin dry this summer (and all year round), ask yourself, is the beauty bar you’re currently using providing your skin the moisture it needs, especially in an airconditioned environment? To combat the drying effects of the AC, you need moisture that lasts. With a breakthrough formula that can penetrate skin’s every layer, the new Olay Body Wash provides skin moisturization for up to 24 hours.
