Our tropical humidity, with its perils (i.e. how it makes our skin more prone to oiliness and clogged pores), has its perks too as it helps to keep dehydration at bay. On the other hand, celebrities like fashion icon Chiara Ferragni, Japanese actress Kasumi Arimura, Chinese actress Nini, and Korean actress and national boxer Lee Siyoung, battle severely harsh and dry conditions as they travel to some of the world’s toughest environments in order to put themselves and their skin to the ultimate weather challenge.
