Fall and Winter months bring cold, dry air which can be hard to escape from. While you can’t control the weather conditions outside your home, you certainly can inside, which is why a humidifier is a valuable product to invest in. Here are five ways that a humidifier can help your skin.
Chapped lips is one of the most common, and annoying results of dry, cold weather. As much as we try to bundle up and protect our skin, inevitably, our lips remain exposed. Even when we are warm and snug under the blankets at night, our lips are still exposed to the cold chill in the bedroom. However, a humidifier can help circulate warm, moist air which our lips will love.
There’s nothing worse than waking up and immediately having to reach for moisturizer. Sleep should rejuvenate our skin, not make it worse. A humidifier can help to keep your skin moisturized with its warm, humid air. This way you can sleep all night and rest easy knowing that when you wake up, your skin will actually be healthier.
It’s best to breathe through our nose. The tiny hairs in our nose helps to trap unwanted air particles, and the nasal passage will warm up the air, making oxygen easier to enter our bloodstream. A humidifier helps out the nasal passage by making the air that much warmer as well as have more oxygen to begin with. Then, the moist air can pass more easily through the nasal passage. Our nose has skin in it, and even if it is internal, can still benefit from a humidifier. Breather easier and healthier.
Many humidifiers offer filters that trap bacteria and viruses from entering the air. This in turn means less exposure to elements that make us sick. As Fall and Winter are prime cold and flu months, it’s a nice coincidence that humidifiers are more often used during these times as well. Turn on your humidifier and fall into a deep sleep with the knowledge that the air your will breath is healthy and clean.
There are now many models of humidifiers which work with essential oils. This is especially great as it reduces the need for multiple machines which can take up a lot of unnecessary space. Fall asleep to the calming fragrance of lavender. This will allow you to sleep more deeply, which will help your skin heal itself of the daily grind. Better sleep also equals better health and skin, so the more well rested you are, the healthier and younger you will look.
