Clear Skin

Starting from March, Dhaka's average high temperature is 34°C (93.2°F) and humidity is greater than 50%. A little humidity can be a good thing for keeping your skin soft and hydrated. However, it can also leave your complexion sweaty and shiny and can even lead to breakouts when water in air is 50% or more. In high humidity conditions sweat does not evaporate quickly, so it simply stays on your skin longer. This can result in blocked pores. Humid air stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, giving skin an oily appearance. The combination leads to more frequent breakouts. Follow the steps below to protect your face from hot, humid conditions.

Wash Your Face With A Good Cleanser

Start and end each day with a cleanser. Cleanse morning and night to remove makeup, grime and excess oil. Your skin will feel refreshed and clean when the day’s impurities are removed from your skin. Look for the right Ingredients. Natural cleansers with salicylic acids helps remove dead surface skin cells and keep pores clear to help prevent breakouts from forming.

Use Alcohol-Free Toner After Face Wash

After a good face wash, use an alcohol-free toner to close the pores. Alcohol-free toners are much more gentle, and will allow the surface of your skin to heal. A toner that’s alcohol-free will also allow you to balance the pH levels of your skin with more ease. You can achieve a normalized skin pH level using a toner. Have balanced pH levels decreases the likelihood of skin irritation.

Moisturize Your Face Thoroughly

Use a lightweight moisturizer to seal in moisture and help keep your skin hydrated. Look for one that is non-comedogenic which means it will not clog pores.

Use A Broad Spectrum Suncreen

Always use a broad spectrum moisturizer with at least SPF 15 to protect against UV exposure from the sun, a common threat in hot and humid climates.
