Winter air is dry air. Humidifiers put moisture back into the air, which can create a lot of benefits for you and your family. A 2013 study, for example, showed that increasing humidity levels to 43 percent or above significantly reduced the ability of airborne viruses to cause flu infections. Humidity also acts as a natural moisturizing agent that can relieve dryness.

  • Dry skin
