Winter can be a time of great fun and community if you take advantage of it! The glistening snow, early morning snowshoeing and a comforting cup of hot chocolate to end the day are all perks of the season we have grown to love. One of the not-so-fun benefits is the dry air that seems to be in full supply wherever you go indoors or outdoors. This is why it’s best to invest in a humidifier, so you can keep enjoying the fun of winter while avoiding the negatives.
Keeps the skin hydrated.
While we won’t pretend that a humidifier will magically give you that summertime glow, it can help your skin and even hair immensely this season. The dry air sucks the moisture from your skin. The result of this is dry skin, itchiness, cracked skin and aging.
Makes the air easier to breathe.
If you suffer from a respiratory illness, the dry air can make it incredibly difficult to breathe. Even if you don’t have respiratory problems, the dry air can make it feel like you have a cold due to dry sinuses. A humidifier will remedy this quickly.
Helps prevent illness.
When the airway is dry, it is less able to defend against illness. You won’t have to worry about coughing and sneezing as much with a humidifier because it’s setting your body up to be successful in fighting off unwanted bacteria.
Warms your home.
Remember the humidity from summer and how it made it feel even warmer outside? Humidifiers do that too, as they make the home feel warmer than it actually is by trapping the heat into the air. You can cut down on some of the heating costs this way.
Provides personal comfort.
It’s not fun to get a static shock as you pull a blanket up or brush your hair. Humidity will eliminate this nuisance.
When our throats are dry, we often snore more. If you or your partner hasn’t been getting very good sleep lately because the other one is snoring, you may want to consider a humidifier.
With only colder days ahead, consider giving your loved one with respiratory problems a thoughtful gift to help them at this time. Mask wipes may be just what they need to ward off potential illnesses this winter.
