Your home heating might be keeping you cozy at home but it might also lead to an itchy throat and drier skin. Fortunately, you can change this by investing in a humidifier. It will add the moisture your skin (and basically your whole body) needs and keep you refreshed at the same time. Here are the top reasons why it is a worthwhile investment.
1. You Will Look Better
When your skin is dry and cracked, it looks ugly and old. When the air is not so dry, you lose less water in the skin. Thus, a humidifier will prevent all of these symptoms like chapped lips, itchy eyes or scaly skin. If your model adds 30 to 40% humidity into the air, your skin is kept moisturized. It will then make any skin blemishes, such as scars or wrinkles, less visible.
2. You Can Breathe Easier
Even if you do not suffer from asthma, breathing in dry air can be tough. It may even cause nose bleeds or breathing difficulties. Thus, any added moisture can soothe and lubricate dry airways, and even stop snoring.
Note of caution: do not overdo it. When the humidity is too high, the house feels stuffy and may allow mold or bacteria to grow (and cause respiratory problems). Keep the humidity at 30 to 50% for ideal conditions. You should also remember to clean the humidifier to prevent the growth of mold inside.
