Most people only use humidifiers for babies or kids, and the reason for their use is to help with cold and flu symptoms, allergies, and sinus irritation. But did you know that humidifiers can combat dry skin in the winter time? Mind blown or what! Maybe, you knew that. But do you really understand the benefits of using a humidifier to help with certain skin issues? Whether it is winter where you are or the climate you live in is naturally dry, it is important to take extra care of your skin because dry skin can cause a whole lot of unwanted issues. 

Results of Dry Skin

  • Acne
  • Cracking/Flaking skin
  • Oily skin
  • Eczema
  • Redness
  • Inflammation

These are just a few of the results of dry skin. Some people when their skin is dry they just experience a little cracking and flaking which is not too bad, but if left untreated can lead to redness and inflammation, even resulting in Eczema. Other’s bodies end up producing more and more sebum (oil) causing the skin to be extra oily which can result in acne.

That is why it is so important to keep your skin moisturized from head to toe in dry climates. Make sure to have a good moisturizer, to not use drying products on your skin, and to not take overly hot showers. Also, get a humidifier. It is a great way to bring moisture back into the air in your home causing the moisture in the skin to be less likely to evaporate. If the moisture in your skin is staying, it is less likely that you will be dealing with dry skin and its results. As you can see, the humidifier works along with the other treatments to help fight dry skin at its root.

It might seem like it is an investment, but it is an investment for your health. Sometimes, we forget that our skin is an organ. It is so easy for us to do anything for our heart, lungs, kidneys, etc. When it comes to our skin, we look at it as if it is a hassle or vain to take care of it. Don’t forget your skin is an organ, the largest one to be exact, and it is the only one you will ever have!
