Dry skin has always been associated with the dry winter weather but it’s not rare to notice dry skin in summer as well. The summer heat can cause your skin to dehydrate from the inside leading to dry skin on your face and body.  In order to treat this condition properly one must know the exact reason for dry skin in summer.


Not drinking enough water
Even though you think you drink sufficient amount of water during summer, it may not be enough to replenish the fluids you lose out on while you sweat. Increase your water intake subsequently for better skin during summer.

Air conditioners
People tend to spend a lot of time around air conditioners during summer. While this helps you skip the heat, it also soaks up the skin’s natural oils, thereby causing dryness.

Clogged pores
Clogged pores are another reason for dry skin. Clogged pores block sweat glands and cause dryness.

Taking a hot shower

Some of us are habituated to taking a hot shower and don’t change our ways in summer either. But a hot shower in summer will lead to dehydration of the skin and lead to dryness.

Excessive exfoliation

Even though exfoliation is a good idea in summer to scrub away the dead and dry skin, if you over-exfoliate your skin, it can trigger dryness. This happen because the exfoliated skin reacts to the heat exposure during summer and causes dryness.
