Lets face it, our skin takes a lot of abuse. Whether its the dry heat of summer or the cold brutal air of winter our skin isn’t always at its best.
Not only does the outdoor weather wear on our skin, the indoor climates we are exposed to can do just as much damage!
Indoors- especially at work and in hotel rooms- the air has little to no moisture. “As much as 60% of the human body is composed of water and the ideal humidity level is between 40% to 60%. When the air around you is dry it will draw moisture from any available source, including your eyes, skin and lips!” Hello leather-face!
When your skin gets dehydrated, your wrinkles are more noticeable and your skin tone takes on a sallow cast.
Humidifying your skin indoors (especially at night while you sleep) will help to keep your skin soft, smooth and comfortable plus you’ll find you need less concealer and foundation! Ahhh Fresh Youthful skin!
I spoke with my favorite Esthetician Jaclyn Allen of Studio Salons about the benefits of humidification, “Humidifiers are great for your skin! They reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ease conditions such as eczema and psoriasis and they are perfect for people who experience headaches due to sinusitis, respiratory problems, menopause (reducing hot flashes and high temps), diabetes, itching, and can even benefit the health of your eyes. The eyes depend heavily on a certain amount of moisture to do such functions as lubrication on the different parts of the eye that give you your vision and the overall comfort of your eyes. The dry eye condition can happen when you are exposed too much to overly dry air. Symptoms such as your eyes having light sensitivity, eye pain, discoloration of your eyes, itching, and possibly even blurry vision. By using a humidifier you can keep from getting this condition in the first place.”
Traveling to different climates can wreak havoc on your skin. Some of the worst environments for your skin are in hotel rooms and at work where there is recirculated air and hardly any humidity.
“How can I possibly control the humidity level in a hotel room or at work?” you may ask. Air-o-Swiss has the solution!
The Air-o-Swiss Ultrasonic travel humidifier fits into any travel bag and ensures healthy humid air wherever you go! Super easy to use- just attach a plastic water bottle and plug it in! (1 bottle will last through the night–don’t worry the unit automatically shuts off when out of water).
I can’t tell you how much I love this unit! My career takes me to many locations and environments, most recently I headed to Atlantic City for a photo-shoot. My Air-o-Swiss Travel humidifier kept my skin fresh and dewy even in the dry hotel air- and no weird “hotel room” dry throat or messy bloody nose in the mornings! I had to beat the models off with a stick–they all wanted to take my Air-o-Swiss to their rooms for the night!
If you are a traveler you have to get this product! I love it, love it, love it!

Jaclyn says “Be sure to use distilled or demineralized water in your humidifier. Tap water has minerals that can create deposits inside your humidifier that promote bacteria.”
