Side effects of staying in AC for long hours in summers

Varnika Srivastava

Here are side effects of staying in AC for very long.

Excessive time spent in air-conditioned environments can lead to dry skin, causing flaky and itchy sensations.

Excessive exposure to air conditioning (AC) can exacerbate dry eye symptoms.

The study suggests that prolonged exposure to AC can decrease skin oil production, resulting in dull and dehydrated skin.

Moisture loss causes skin shrivelling, reduced elastic properties, and early wrinkles and fine lines.

AC can damage hair by removing natural oils that protect it, leading to dryness, brittleness, and increased breakage risk.

Air conditioning systems can potentially contribute to the growth of allergens like dust, pollen, and mold, which can lead to allergies and infectious diseases.
