Your skin is the largest organ of the body, so it is necessary that you take care of it every day. It doesn’t matter if you have oily or dry skin – it’s important to keep a consistent skin routine daily. This includes cleansing the skin, exfoliating, and moisturizing.
Adding a humidifier to the household has become a popular trend among skin-conscious individuals. By adding moisture to the air, it prevents any dryness that may cause irritation to parts of the body, especially the skin, nose, throat, and lips.
If you have oily skin, you’re probably thinking extra moisture is the last thing you need. On the contrary, when skin becomes oily this is often a reaction to a lack of moisture. If you don’t moisturize or take care of your skin properly, it can react by overproducing sebum (skin oil). Often times, oily skin can be more easily managed by allowing some more moisture into your daily routine. Don’t deprive your skin of what it needs!
Here are 4 reasons why you should consider using an air humidifier:
Moisturizes the Skin
Nothing is more unpleasant than dealing with dry, itchy skin. If left untreated, your dry skin may lead to eczema which causes redness, cracking and inflammation to the skin. In addition, dry skin is more likely to overproduce oil, leading to dreaded shiny-looking skin and acne.
Although lotions, chapsticks, and other products are out there, made specifically for this reason, adding an air humidifier to your home can help you retain moisture naturally, for better-looking skin (and hair).
By adding an air humidifier to your household, you can soothe dry sinus passages. The humidifier can help loosen up mucus secretions in the nasal passages. This not only loosens congestion throughout the day and night so you can wake up refreshed, but it also can help with common allergies.
Humidifiers make your breathing passageways open up wider, allowing you to breathe easier. This will give you more comfort during the flu and allergy seasons and help speed up your recovery period.
Sleeping with a stuffy nose can be extremely uncomfortable. Humidifiers can stay on throughout the night, relieving any congestion while you are sleeping to enhance your airflow quality. Humidifiers have also been known to alleviate snoring by adding moisture to the airways to reduce thick mucus production throughout the night.
Whether you suffer from nasal congestion, skin dryness, or skin oiliness, having an air humidifier in your household or office can improve skin, nose, and throat health.
