My skin has been feeling super dry between the trip to LA and Vegas, an overheated office, and winter in general. While drinking water and applying copious amounts of non-alcoholic toners, serums, lotions, and cream helps, don’t forget the trusty humidifier! It may also help prevent sickness (knock on wood). I’ve got these two:
- The Broksonic Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier and Diffuser (left) is super sleek, but has a smaller tank (60 ounces) and does beep when it’s turning on or off. I don’t mind either – the more often you clean it, the less gunk accumulates. It is also a diffuser. I haven’t used that function yet. Amazon sells this through a third party or Casa (home store owned by Amazon) for $149.99. Gilt has it for $99.99 (which is where I got it with an additional % off coupon).
- The Crane Drop Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier (right) is super popular on Amazon. It’s “only” $44.99 (at press time) and its tank is twice the size of the Broksonic. I’ve had this one for a while and it is a champ. Although, it’s a pain to clean since you’re unlikely to be refilling and cleaning it on a daily basis.
