One of the reasons that I think Filipinos look younger than their actual age? The humidity in Manila! As much as we complain about it, I think it can actually be a good thing for our skin in the long run.
I was obviously quite excited to get my hands on this, because I was already in the market for a humidifier—especially after I noticed that my skin felt a bit more dry in the morning. The culprit? Airconditioning! It can zap the moisture from your skin while you sleep.
The travel version comes with a USB adapter (so you can use it in the car) and a power cord (so you can park it by your desk). I like that it comes with a travel cup and 3 wick filters also, so you don’t have to worry about replacing it for some time.
While at the Crane event, I also learned that humidifiers aren’t just for your skin (sorry guys, beauty concerns are always my priority). Apparently, these nifty gadgets can also help loosen nasal congestion, easy dry coughs, relieve flu symptoms, and soothe itchy skin (and dry lips!).
Now skin stuff aside, what I really liked about the Crane humidifier is this: it has Clean Control Antimicrobial Material in the base and it’s proven to help reduce up to 99.96% of mold and bacteria growth. Yahoooo, that is music to this (recovering) germa-phobic’s ears!
So what’s the verdict? While a humidifier isn’t really a necessity to most, I like using it because of all the benefits I mentioned above. I use it every other night, but if I’m feeling a bit sick, then I just turn it on around mid-afternoon to help kill all the germs in the air. So far, so good! And the price points aren’t so bad, either. I’d say invest in the travel-sized one first to give it a try. If you notice any improvements in your skin or health, then that’s when you upgrade!
