3 Biggest Benefits of Owning a Personal Humidifier

3 Biggest Benefits of Owning a Personal Humidifier

While the air we breathe is critical to our survival, the quality of that air can fluctuate dramatically. In winter, we crank up the heat in our homes and offices, and when we travel, we expose ourselves to the artificial environments inside airplanes and hotels.

Any of these conditions can lead to us breathing air that’s overly dry, and that has the potential to cause a wide range of problems – from chapped lips, to insufficient sleep. If you’ve ever suffered from congested sinuses, a sore throat, or skin that feels tight and dry first thing in the morning - and wondered what you could do about it - the answer might be simpler than you think!

A portable, personal humidifier is the ideal way to add moisture back into the air in small spaces like your bedroom or office cubicle. Humidifying the air with cool mist technology is not only a great way to avoid dry, irritated eyes, lips, and nasal passages, it can also help to alleviate the symptoms associated with allergies and asthma.

Simply put, a personal humidifier can help you breathe easier. And some models are small and compact enough to make traveling with them easy. These handy portable devices boast features like:

  • battery-operated, cordless convenience,
  • automatic and adjustable timers for customized relief, and
  • whisper-quiet operation that won’t interfere with your sleep

Let’s take a look at three of the biggest benefits of owning, and traveling with, a personal humidifier.

1. Stay Healthy

Prevent the Spread of Germs

Did you know that keeping the air you breathe sufficiently moist can help ward off colds and flu? When inside air is seasonally dry, or artificially controlled, it can cause problems for your respiratory system. But research suggests that you become less susceptible to the airborne viruses that cause many infections, when you keep the membranes inside your nose, throat, and lungs from drying out. A personal humidifier is ideal for this purpose.

Avoid Nosebleeds

Regularly breathing air that’s too dry is one of the biggest contributors to nosebleeds – especially if you’re already prone to getting them. Using a personal humidifier while you sleep can help to keep your nasal passages well lubricated, and prevent the dry conditions that encourage nosebleeds.

Soothe Sinusitis

Sinusitis is a viral infection that causes the lining of the sinus cavities to become swollen and inflamed. This condition can be uncomfortable, as well as painful, since nasal congestion makes it difficult to breathe, and can often cause headaches. Breathing air that’s been moistened by a personal humidifier not only helps to prevent sinus problems, it can help to soothe the sore throat, nasal stuffiness, and dry cough that often accompany them.   

Promote Healing

Despite our best efforts, we all catch the occasional cough or sniffle. But using a personal humidifier to prevent dryness in the air can help keep your suffering to a minimum when you’re sick. Whether it’s a cold, flu, or good old-fashioned allergies, keeping your throat and nasal passages well moistened will reduce symptoms, and help you heal faster.

2. Sleep Better

Many people benefit from using a personal humidifier to help them sleep better. When winter heating systems suck the moisture from the air inside your home, or you’re sleeping in an environment that’s less humid than you’re used to, your nasal passages can become dried out and irritated. This is a common dilemma on airplanes and in many hotel rooms, and it can make getting a good night’s sleep difficult.

Using a personal humidifier on a regular basis:

  • decreases congestion,
  • makes breathing easier, and
  • helps you to reach those deeper levels of sleep we all need to be healthy

A humidifier can also be a life-saver if you or your partner snores. The better lubricated the throat and sinus passages, the less frequent and intense our snoring tends to be.

3. Keep Your Skin Glowing

Here’s an essential beauty tip: next to the deep-cleaning power of a facial brush, one of the best-kept secrets to youthfully glowing skin is the personal humidifier! Turn yours on each night, and you’ll soon find you’re awakening to a complexion that’s noticeably softer and suppler.

Dry air can drain the moisture from your skin while you sleep, leaving you with chapped lips, dry hands, feet, and elbows, and a complexion that’s dull and lifeless. To look your vibrant best at all times, drink lots of water, and keep your body hydrated – both inside and out.

A Note About Hygiene

While the benefits of personal humidifiers are clear, they can’t function properly without some attention. Mold and bacteria love a pleasantly humid environment as much as we do, so to keep them at bay, be sure to clean your humidifier regularly and replace its hard-working filter every few months.
