Dry Eyes - Summer Air Conditioning Can Dehydrate Skin and Eyes

Nature's Tears® EyeMist®

Air conditioning can cause skin and eyes to lose water, warns Bio-Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne. The loss of water could result in numerous dehydration complaints. The good news is that a few simple precautions can prevent summer air conditioner dehydration.

According to Sharon Kleyne, when outside air circulates through an air conditioner and is cooled, moisture is lost and the amount of water vapor in the air decreases. There is a simple reason for this: The cooler the air, the less vapor it is capable of holding. That's why water drips off air conditioners during the heat of summer.

If the air conditioned air is too dry, as is often the case, water evaporation from the surface of the eyes and the upper layers of the skin will accelerate, resulting in dry skin and dry eye complaints.

There is a second reason why air conditioning and forced air heating are dehydrating. Simply put, they create wind. To understand why wind is dehydrating, imagine setting a fan in a room to help dry a wet carpet. The wind from the fan is in not in itself drying. However, as water evaporates from the carpet, it creates a thin layer of vapor saturated air immediately above the carpet. No additional water can evaporate until the saturated layer dissipates. By circulating the air, the fan continuously blows away the vapor saturated layer, hastening the drying process.

Wind from forced-air cooling and heating has a similar effect on skin and eyes.

Common dry eye and dry skin complaints include dry and itching eyes, blurred vision, eye strain, fatigue, headache, watery eyes, dry skin, itchy skin, flaky or "ashy" skin and easily scratched skin.

Suggestions to reduce dehydration from summer air conditioning or winter heating: Crack a window - especially in the bathroom - to let fresh outside air in. Put baffles over the heating and cooling vents. If the room is too dry, set out bowls of water and many house plants. Drink at least eight full glasses of water a day in addition to other fluids. Take frequent cool baths and showers. Humidify eyes and skin, as needed with all-natural, 100% water, pH balanced Natures Tears® EyeMist® and/or Natures Mist® skin moisture.
