Just like we water our plants, vacuum our carpets, and clean our sinks, we need to care for the air in our homes. One of our favorite ways to do this is with a humidifier, which in turn provides benefits such as better skin and hair, improved quality of sleep, and boosted natural immunity.
What is a humidifier?
A humidifier is a device that optimizes the humidity levels in your home’s air. It’s like giving your air a hydrating facial every time you use it.
What does a humidifier do?
Humidifiers increase the moisture in your air, creating its optimal hydration level. Here are a few of the benefits of a humidifier.
Beauty benefits of a humidifier
A humidifier hydrates your skin; improves its texture and elasticity; strengthens and protects its natural barrier; and improves its ability to absorb skincare products. It also does wonders for your hair, keeping it soft, shiny, hydrated, and strong.
Sleep benefits of a humidifier
By alleviating stuffy noses and dry throats, a humidifier creates a more comfortable environment for the whole family. Opt for one that is whisper quiet and has multiple time settings so that it works for both your baby’s naps and your full night’s sleep.
Health benefits of a humidifier
Boosting the humidity levels in your air to an optimal range, a humidifier makes your air healthier, giving your immune system that extra support. So that you can breathe easy.
How does a humidifier work?
A humidifier has a water basin that turns water into vapor, and this vapor then hydrates the air. Different humidifiers interact with the water differently; for instance, ultrasonic humidifiers use vibrations to turn the water into a fine mist. The way humidifiers work may affect certain features, like whether they’re silent, can work throughout the night, and if they’re weather-specific—for example, warm mist humidifiers are usually only suitable for cold climates.
Why should I use a humidifier?
Oftentimes, the air in our environments is too dry and lacks moisture. Dry air can result in a myriad of issues: it can cause congestion, worsen allergy symptoms, and weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to colds and flus. It can also damage your skin barrier and cause dry, cracked skin, as well as make your hair more prone to frizz. Humidifiers work to boost the humidity levels in your air to an optimal range, which instead promotes better immunity, skin, and hair.
