Air that is too dry or too clean can literally suck too many materials (that some call oily dirt) from skin. Resulting in skin problems such as chapping and sometimes chafing.Too much humidity creates other problem. The question can only be answered with a relative humidity number. A best number is typically 40%.Meanwhile, if working in a clean room, then bring chap stick. Lips are often a first thing sucked dry by that cleanest air.Same applies to water. Cleanest water (deionized water) also does bad things to skin and other tissues. Safer water contains contaminates.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp Aevum1 Added an answer on August 26, 2019 at 8:54 am Not sure what you mean but…1) our skin is has pores, and those pores allow the movement of some air and fluid through it. so when exposed to drier air, you might find your skin getting drier from moisture loss.2) Water transfers energy a lot better then plain air, so air with a higher humidity (meaning more water suspended in vapor form in it) will transmit heat or cold a lot better then dry air, meaning that if its hot, you will feel hotter when its humid outside,0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
