Dry, Cracked Skin
Your skin is tough. Really tough. But it requires moisture to be healthy. In the dry desert air, your skin loses moisture very rapidly. This can lead to dry, cracked skin. Regularly applying lotion will help, but installing a humidifier in your home can be a more permanent fix. It will also help with the unpleasant condition of having dry, cracked lips. Overusing lip balm can actually worsen this condition in the long run!
Frizz and Split Ends
Humidity affects your hair as well! You have probably seen a movie in which a character complains about having frizzy hair because it is too humid outside. Well, a lack of humidity can have its own set of complications. Primarily, living in an arid environment will cause your hair to dry out leading to split ends. The dry air will also affect the health of your scalp. A humidifier can change all of this!
Health and Wellbeing
Some people will find their bodies overproduce mucus to compensate for the lack of moisture in the air. This can contribute to sore throats and congestion. Installing a humidifier has been shown to alleviate these symptoms. It is a quick, easy, and permanent fix!
