Why You Need a Humidifier This Winter

How to stay healthy and moisturized this winter.

Share Tweet Pin

While we love the cozy feeling that comes with winter, the frosty weather has some definite downsides. When we're cuddled up at home (or bundled up at work) dry winter air is wreaking havoc on our skin and sinuses. 

To help you avoid the winter woes that come with dry air, we've teamed up with Honeywell to keep you well and moisturized all season long. Plus, Honeywell is sending a humidifier to 500 lucky Influensters this cold season! Get ready to breathe a little easier!

The Downsides of Dry Air

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, "the ideal levels of humidity for your living space will be between 25-40 percent in the winter." When the moisture levels in your home fall below this level, a host of problems can occur. Dry air has been known to cause:

  • nose bleeds
  • sinus infections 
  • asthma
  • eczema
  • other skin irritations 

The Perks of Having a Humidifier

One way to clear out dry air and prevent skin and sinus irritation is to invest in a humidifier for your home. A humidifier works to replace the missing moisture in your home during dry months. Water mist emitted from the machine raises humidity levels in each room making it easier to breathe. Plus, studies have shown that keeping your home at 43 percent humidity or above can significantly reduce your chances of catching the flu from airborne viruses.

If you suffer from sinus infections or nose bleeds, humidifiers can also help to heal your nose faster. The moisture in the air lubricates the nostrils, making sure germs don't get stuck. Have a partner who snores? The moisture from a humidifier can also alleviate dry throats and lessen the intensity of snoring.
