5 Tips to reap the Skin and Hair Benefits of a Humidifier in Your Home
Ever noticed that your hair and skin seems more dry in the wintertime? It is not your imagination.
If you don't have a furnace with a humidifier, consider getting a freestanding one. I keep one in our home and the skin studios to keep skin, hair, and plants from drying out.
Plus, with the right humidifier, you can diffuse lovely essential oils that will waft your favorite scents throughout your space--talk about a mood stabilizer!
Tip #1 - Too much of a good thing is not good
The benefits of using a humidifier for your skin and overall health are undeniable:
Hair + Skin - Increases the air's water content
Body - Hydration helps flush toxins and fluids through the capillaries
Room - The right humidifier can be used to diffuse healing essential oils for a healthy mood
However, it's important to avoid any potential issues by using your humidifier correctly.
Tip #2 - Short and Sweet
At BELLA BAR, I recommend using a humidifier for short periods of time, and only when needed. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions and keep an eye on the humidity levels in your home. By using your humidifier safely and effectively, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits for your skin and respiratory health.

Tip #3 - Make it personal
Not withstanding the hydration benefits for hair and skin, there's nothing like a space that smells like a spa. The same scents my clients love at BELLA BAR can extend to their personal spaces with a humidifier or a diffuser.
My favorite essential oil combinations for home and skin studio are:
Eucalyptus + Lavender
Lemongrass + Peppermint
Clove + Lemon
Tip #4 - Clean this thing
If you're using your humidifier weekly, clean it every week. Germs, bacteria, and mold will harbor in the equipment if it's not throughly maintained for cleanliness. The essential oils will build up and clog the machine as well.
Use water and vinegar to clean your humidifier. And, dry it out thoroughly between uses to avoid fungi breeding ground.
Tip #5 - Still on the fence
Lastly, if you're still on the fence for whether a humidifier is right for you, consider a few more benefits that can help with the over all health benefits for you and your family, if, you're willing to keep your humidifier clean:
Acne - When skin is dry, oil production can increase and cause acne breakouts
Chapped Lips - Helps keep chapped lips at bay by keeping hydration in the air
Static Cling - Air humidity reduces static cling because hair absorbs hydration
Dull/Dry Skin - Give your skin a chance to glow with the right skincare and un-dry air
