How to Combat the Effects of Dry Air
Stay Healthy and Comfortable with Tips from Air Quality Experts in Easton, PA
Besides the ice and snow, dry hands, lips, and eyes are another common sign that winter is here. Dry winter winds and heated interior spaces can wreak havoc on your skin and body, and also make you more vulnerable to catching the common cold virus. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to ease the effects.
Follow these tips to make winter feel more like a wonderland, and less like a dry and uncomfortable part of the year:
- Stay Hydrated – It can be tough to drink the recommended amount of water when it’s cold outside. You may not feel as thirsty, but your body still needs water to properly function and remain hydrated. Try using the kettle and adding lemon to hot water if cold water does not appeal to you during cold spells.
- Add Moisture – Moisturizing oils, creams, and eye drops can help you find temporary relief and ease symptoms associated with itchy, dry, or irritated skin.
- Improve Your Space – The comfort of the interior of your home or small commercial property can be greatly improved with better air quality. When you pay attention to and adjust the humidity levels of your home with help from an expert, you can get long-term relief. A properly sealed home, a well-maintained furnace, and clean filters will ensure your air quality is better and your heater does not need to work harder than necessary.
- Fight Static – Another less uncomfortable but equally distracting part of dealing with dry environments is static cling and shocks. Find a humidifier to do away with them for good at home, or deal with them at the office by spraying clothes with water or finding a reliable ‘grounding’ metal source.
