The Often Overlooked Link Between Weather and Wrinkles

Most of us are well aware that age, sun exposure, and smoking can cause fine lines and wrinkles in our skin.

But did you know that the climate where you live might be contributing to your wrinkles, too?

It’s true! The climate that you live in can cause fine lines and other signs of aging.

Living in a dry climate, where there is low humidity in the air, can cause your skin to dry out. It literally zaps the moisture right out of your skin. This can lead to dull, dry skin — and yes, more wrinkles.

If you live in a drier climate, you don’t necessarily need to move! But, it’s time to start adding dry skin moisturizer to your skincare routine. Aside from giving you immediate relief from the discomfort caused by dry, cracked skin, it can also help stave off fine lines and wrinkles in the long run.
