It may still be warm outside as we come closer to summer’s end, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be getting ready for cooler temperature and lower humidity. A humidifier can help prevent cold dry air’s negative side effects.
Dry Air and Sickness
The upper part of your respiratory system (including your throat and nose) is lined with moist membranes. These membranes capture dust, dirt, viruses, and bacteria before they reach your sensitive and vulnerable lungs. When these membranes lose too much moisture to dry air, their ability to capture potentially dangerous particles becomes compromised. Proper humidity levels help keep these membranes healthy and working to protect you. When you use a Humidew humidifier in your home, you’re maintaining the right levels of moisture in the air to reduce your chances of getting sick.
A Dry Nose
For some, dry air can cause the nose and nasal passages to be irritated and itchy. Because most of your breathing is done through the nose, low humidity levels can cause the inside of your nose to become dry and irritated. This isn’t just painful, but can cause nosebleeds. Your Humidew keeps your nasal passages healthy and comfortable with every breath!
Itchy, scaly skin? No thank you! Your skin is over 50% water, so when the air is lacking humidity your skin can dry out. This can cause itchiness, flaking, and tightness around the joints and even painful cracking of the skin and chapped lips. Overly-dry air can also cause flare-ups of existing skin problems such as eczema and acne. Using your Humidew can help keep your skin feeling healthy and soft through even the driest of winters.
