Dry skin, also known as xerosis, is a common problem among many, especially during the winter months. Pinpointing the reason you may have dry skin can be a headache. Common causes are weather, central heating, hot baths and showers, harsh skincare ingredients, and other skin conditions, such as eczema.
Symptoms can vary significantly, but oftentimes many include a feeling of tight skin, fine lines or cracks, redness, roughness, and peeling. The severity of these symptoms depends on how old you are, your current overall health, where you live, how much time you spend outdoors and more.
How Does a Humidifier Help Dry Skin?
The outermost layer of the skin is known as the skin barrier. When well hydrated, your skin has a water content of 10-30%. Water content in the skin comes from sweat, underlying layers of the skin, and the atmosphere. Your skin’s natural oils also help to seal in water as they act as natural moisturizers. A healthy skin barrier ensures minimal water loss and allows you to fend off allergens and irritants.
When the skin loses water faster than it can be replaced, you may start to feel the symptoms of dry skin. This allows your skin to become vulnerable to a number of environmental factors. Long term dryness can lead to cracking, bleeding, and onset of skin conditions such as psoriasis.
Having a humidifier by your bedside can help you to maintain soft and supple skin. This allows you to have control of the humidity levels in your home, helping your skin to retain its natural moisture.
Additional Skin Benefits of Using a Humidifier
Humidifiers are known for their long list of health benefits. When it comes to your skin, having your home at the perfect humidity can help prevent Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL), TEWL occurs when water passes through the dermis (deeper layers of skin) to the epidermis (outer layers of skin) and evaporates from the skin’s surface. A reduction in TEWL will help to prevent dry patches, chapped lips, and dry hair, especially during the winter months.
If you have skin conditions such as Eczema or Psoriasis, the right humidifier can also help to significantly reduce flare-ups.
Why Canopy Humidifier is the Best Humidifier for Dry Skin
According to cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Dendy Engelman, “One of the best & easiest ways to keep skin healthy and looking its best is to use Canopy. This humidifier has been shown to help all skin types look and feel better.”
When looking for a humidifier that can effectively relieve dryness, it is best to select a model that does not emanate mist, has a long operation time, and keeps your room at an optimal indoor humidity.
Canopy is Anti-Mist
You know that mist coming from your humidifier? It’s actually carrying particles, dust, metals and bacteria that have been sitting in the water.
Canopy is an anti-mist humidifier. Its evaporative technology and paper filter ensure clean, invisible moisture that is shown to be the best for your skin, health and home. Particles forced out of misting humidifiers can be irritating to your skin and lungs and the wet mist can damage your walls and actually promote the growth of mold on household surfaces.
Canopy runs for 18-36 Hours
Your humidifier should fit your life. Having a humidifier with a longer operation time (at least 24 hours) increases the likelihood that your home, office or other living space will reach the recommended humidity level to aid with dry skin.
Canopy is your always-on solution to clean moisture. With up to 36 hours of run time, Canopy is powered by USB-C, making it 5X more energy efficient than the leading humidifiers on the market.
