It is still winter in some parts of the world and the heat is being turned on most of the time. I hope not for long, however, as it sure dries out my skin. I hate that taut feeling, not to mention the peeling and scaling. What to do? I have the answer. Get a handy dandy humidifier and the problem is solved. It doesn’t cost that much relative to the big benefits you will receive from having one in operation in your home. There are multiple choices online and many specials on offer. It only takes a few minutes to find what you need.
If you are like me and won’t wait even a second to return your skin condition to a normal state, you will follow suit and make a timely purchase. There are loads of different sizes and models, with varying prices to fit every budget. You can start looking at a one or two-gallon table top appliance useful for an average to small size room up to 300 square feet. I personally like an ultrasonic device as the technology provides a quiet experience when in use. I want it to be able to run on one tank for more than 24 hours. It goes without saying that it has to be safe and also offer a warranty. For some, appearance is important.
At the other end of the size scale is a whole house unit that comes with a six-gallon water capacity. It will do the job for a house up to 3,000 square feet. I prefer one with digital controls and display. I hear that opting for a 3-speed motor is ideal as well as an adjustable humidistat and auto shutoff. A bonus is to have water and filter replacement indicators, castors for easy mobility, and a convenient top pour-in door.
The possibilities are endless and this just indicates the range out there depending upon your individual needs. Most people are happy to have a mid-size humidifier in the bedroom to help prevent dryness of the skin that develops overnight when the heat is often left on. This assumes you are away at work or doing errands during the day. If not, you can add a unit to your home office. Any damage done during the rest of the time when you are out and about can easily be reversed. I highly recommend a humidifier as there is no downside to it.
Dry skin will no longer be a chronic complaint if you keep your humidifier in peak operating condition. They must be cleaned an attended to now and then, but it is well worth the effort. Dry skin ages the face, causes itching and irritation, and just looks bad overall. There is a remedy for everyone, so no excuses are in order. If you are on the road, the small table top model can be stowed in a case or backpack to use in a hotel or guest room as needed. You will come to depend on the humidifier to save your skin long term.
