Air Conditioning Can Dehydrate Skin and Eyes Reports Water and Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Air conditioning can cause skin and eyes to lose water, warns water and health researcher 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.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua Research, a water and health research and development center, and host of the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on Voice American and Apple iTunes. Bio-Logic Aqua Research developed and owns the products Natures Tears® EyeMist® and Natures Mist® all-natural skin moisture.

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 often drips off air conditioners during the heat of summer. Depending on the water vapor content of the original outside air, the air conditioned air may end up too humid, too dry or just right.

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, Kleyne explains, why air conditioning and forced air heating are dehydrating. Simply put, they create wind. To understand why wind is dehydrating, says Kleyne, imagine setting up 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.

Sharon Kleyne’s 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.
