Is winter’s cold, dry air wreaking havoc on your skin? It is mine! During the winter, humidity levels can drop as low as 10%. That’s drier than the Sahara Desert. Rather than piling on the moisturizer and causing a break out, help relieve cracked, scaly alligator skin by adding moisture to the air. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends running a humidifier to prevent chapped lips.
I was sent a Honeywell HWM-340B Easy to Care Warm Mist Humidifier ($39.99 USD)for my honest review. Honeywell has a variety of models on their website to choose from.

What I think: I haven’t used a humidifier for years. I used to live in Oregon, which is pretty moist all year round (rain!). But now that I live in Kansas City, the extremely dry winters are murder. Literally…our grass will remain brown until the rains of spring!
These dry winters make my skin extremely dry. I have noticed that while I run my humidifier I am less itchy and I can breath better. My skin also just feels more comfortable. It is not as tight or dry.
I love that this humidifier is so affordable but makes such a huge difference in the air quality! And it does make a soft white noise sound, but it is not too bothersome.
