A few years ago, I entered a codependent relationship with the mini humidifier currently next to me on my desk. It all started when I began taking Accutane for my hormonal acne. Basically, Accutane shrinks the sebaceous glands in your body, so I was dry and creaky all over, including my nostrils and my skin. There was literally no moisture in my body.
So I did some research, and the American Academy of Dermatology spelled it out clearly: Dry skin needs moisture, and an easy fix to boost the humidity level in your So I did some research, and the American Academy of Dermatology spelled it out clearly: Dry skin needs moisture, and an easy fix to boost the humidity level in your home is investing in a humidifier. And that’s how I bought the Hey Dewy Wireless Cool Mist Humidifier, aka the love of my life.
Years later, I still just press the power button and let the moist air puff up and coddle my cracked skin.
What’s so great about the Hey Dewy mini humidifier is that it’s small enough to easily carry from my desk to my nightstand or even pack with me when traveling to dry climates. Not only has my skin retained more moisturizer through the colder months (which, warning, are almost here), but I’ve also found that my nasal passages are clearer and my allergies are less intense because of the moist air immediately surrounding me.
As far as the actual specs go, the mini humidifier has an 8-hour run time, blowing out cool mist while using ultrasonic wave technology for quiet, efficient control. It’s also wireless and rechargeable, so you can plop it anywhere. And there’s an LED night light situation that’s super relaxing.
Again, dry skin needs moisture. Moisture helps heal your skin barrier, keeping it soft and smooth. Dewy air, dewy skin. So yeah, I’d say a mini humidifier is a worthwhile investment.
