Hi Blossom, thank you for the question.

I can not find any articles or studies that link the effects of air conditioners on the skin. According to the Chairperson of SARACA, Mrs. J Lubbe, there may be a small effect on drying the skin out. Your approach of using a good night cream and hydrating spray is most probably the best one can do.
