We usually associate summer with oily skin, but some people actually have dry skin in the summer! Are you one of those people? Keep reading to learn what causes dry skin in summer, and how to fix it.
Causes of Dry Skin in Summer
Whether you develop dry skin in the summer depends somewhat on your skin type. If you already have dry skin, you’re much more likely to develop extra dry skin in the summer. Why? Well, we tend to spend more time outside during the warmer months, and all that exposure to sun, chlorine, and high temperatures can leave your skin more dry than usual. Plus, hot summer days can leave us dehydrated, which can also cause skin to look and feel dry.
