The Health Benefits of Using a Humidifier

The Health Benefits of Using a Humidifier

This winter has been a particularly harsh and dry one, flu season has come, but hasn’t gone, and remaining both healthy and comfortable in the dry South African air has been as difficult this season as it has ever been. Looking for a way to alleviate this discomfort and take better charge of your and your family’s health? Here are some of the ways in which using a humidifier in your home or place of work, can ensure a more comfortable and germ-free winter.

Humidifiers Reduce the Risk of Infections

Bacteria travels more freely in dry air, making it easier to spread from person to person. This makes winter time a prime season for getting sick, which is a particularly high risk for the elderly and the very young. Humidifiers can be used to increase the moisture and density of the air which hampers the spread of bacteria, which can significantly lower your chances of falling ill this winter.

Humidifiers are Easy on Your skin

Dry air, much like that found in the South African winter, tends to draw moisture from human skin, resulting in dryness, cracks and an assortment of other afflictions and discomforts. Battling this with creams and lotions can only do so much, while manipulating your living spaces can be all the more effective. By using a humidifier to put moisture back into the air, you will effectively be able to take better care of the condition of your skin when the air is particularly dry.

Humidifiers Help You Recover More Quickly

The membrane in your throat, nose and sinuses work better at fighting off bacteria when they are moist, which poses a problem in the dryness of winter-time. This tissue is also responsible for helping you recover once you have been infected with bacteria, but when they dry out, they start working ineffectively. By putting moisture back into the air with a humidifier, you will effectively make it easier for your body to fight off infections.
