There is no perfect climate that will guarantee skin relief from eczema. Those with oily skin might find relief in drier climates, and those with very dry, scaly skin may feel better in higher humidity.
But with the haze coming back to Singapore, combined with the intense daytime heat, there’s never been a better time to go for a quick escape in April. Guaranteed to calm your skin and refresh your senses (but may be bad for your pocket!)
Note: I skipped popular Thailand destinations like Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi as the weather report shows these places are currently experiencing highs of 36°C.
