We all experience dryer skin in the winter due to less moisture in the air, caused by cold climates and indoor heating. A good solution to combat dryness is using a humidifier.
Ultrasonic humidifiers produce a cool mist with ultrasonic vibration. I recommend the ultrasonic humidifiers versus other types of humidifiers since they are the quietest humidifiers on the market.
Humidity in your home should be between 30% and 50%. If the humidity is higher than 50% it can cause condensation on the walls, floors and other surfaces that trigger the growth of harmful bacteria, dust mites and mold.
The best way to test humidity levels in your house is with a hygrometer. This device, which looks like a thermometer, measures the amount of moisture in the air. Hygrometers can be purchased in hardware and department stores.
For safety, it’s important to clean humidifiers every 2-3 days since dirty water reservoirs can quickly breed bacteria and mold. Best to use distilled water for use in your humidifier to prevent mineral deposits from building up inside your humidifier that promote bacterial growth. Remove any mineral deposits or film from the tank or other parts of the humidifier with a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution, which is available at pharmacies.
My favorite humidifier brand is Boneco which can be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond and some hardware stores.
And remember drink lots of water to keep your skin plump and hydrated.
