Humidifiers—Your Skin's Best Friend...
Do you break out the humidifier whenever you’re so stuffed up you can’t breathe? Does this steamy invention provide some beauty benefits as well?
Turns out, yes.
Although chances are you reach for your favorite moisturizer when your skin feels parched, humidifiers also help your skin stay hydrated and supple. In the winter time when the air is colder and drier, especially this year in our area, our skin can’t hold onto any moisture. We need to add humidity. When it gets this dry, the moisture on our skin evaporates into the air. This is particularly important this year as we've had no rain. Any possible way you can add humidity to the air in your home and where you spend a lot of time is going to be helpful.
Humidifiers infuse the air with moisture, soothing dried out, itchy, cracked skin. So if a humidifier helps combat dry skin, can it also plump it up enough to smooth out wrinkles? Possibly. Unfortunately, it would take a whole lot of moisture to achieve that. For the moisture in the air to get that high, you’d probably be uncomfortable and your sheets would be wet. So theoretically yes, but practically, not realistic.
