Winter brings with it cold temps, snow and dry skin. Especially since we’re all (still) stuck indoors. Soon we’ll start blasting the heat, which certainly won’t do our skin any favors. But there is something you can do to save your skin. Invest in a humidifier.
Humidifiers add moisture to the air and, therefore, to your skin. They also have hidden benefits. Like clearing your sinuses and hydrating both your hair and scalp.
There are a few things to consider before purchasing a humidifier, however. First, you need to decide whether you want a cool-mist or warm-mist version. Second, you need to make a pledge to clean it every single day. If you’re a real clean freak, totally understandable given current circumstances, you may even want to disinfect yours once a week with a bleach solution. Want a little fragrance with your mist? Opt for a device that doubles as a diffuser and pick up some great-smelling essential oils.
Now that you’re ready to commit, here are the best humidifiers for healthier skin and hair this winter.
