Is your skin cracked and sore? Does your hair lack strength and shine? Are your nails becoming weak and brittle? If you have answered yes to one of these, chances are your body may be affected by a lack of hydration. As summers go and winters come, changes in weather can wreak havoc on our hair, skin and nails. Cold winter months may find us reaching for more comforting food choices rather than drinking water and staying hydrated. When weather change happens, it is essential to hydrate and nourish your body to create a barrier from damage.
In summer, humidity influences the shape of our hair by breaking its hydrogen bonds. Hydrogen bonds are what give hair structure. When these are broken, hair will become frizzy. Moreover, excessive sunlight will also break bonds in hair, leading to permanently damaged, dry and brittle manes.
Exposure to winter winds will cause hair to become damaged and more prone to breakage. Not only that but cold and dry air causes the cuticles of the hair strand to lift, preventing moisture being locked in and causing our hair to split.
The sun is our skins worst enemy. High exposure to the sun will lead to sun damage including pigmentation, cracked skin and sun spots. Hot skin can also be the bearer of blocking our sweat glands, which can create pimples. When temperatures cool down, cold temperatures will strip moisture from our skin which makes skin cracked, sore and more prone to inflammation and itchiness.
Pool time, swimming and sunbathing are all contributors to weakening our nail bed. Not only that but hot temperatures can also make our cuticles dry out which affects our nail growth.
