When you think of a desert climate, you might imagine lots of, well, sand, blistering sun, dry air, and steamy hot temps. And that would be accurate. A desert climate is one that’s defined by temps between 75° F and 120° F (yeah, that hot), low humidity, strong sun, and also high levels of pollution. And let’s not forget the dry indoor air as air conditioners are a must in desert climates.That doesn’t sound too skin friendly, right? But if your skin is prepped and protected the right way, it can actually be a good place for your skin. Hear us out: When your skin is properly hydrated (we’ll get to that), the UV light from the sun gets absorbed by the colors of the desert, sparing your skin from some of the damage ranging from dehydration to sun spots and skin aging. The lack of water in the air actually works in your skin’s favor. Water (in oceans and lakes) and clouds act as a magnifying glass, reflecting the sun’s rays back onto your skin, resulting in sun damage. So, when you’re in the dry desert on a cloudless day without any water in sight, the moisture stays locked in your skin—where it belongs.
