The 6 Best Humidifiers

It seems like the quest for healthy, glowing skin is never-ending. And while it’s fun (and certainly beneficial) to try countless new creams and masks, investing in one of the best humidifiers on the market is an effortless way to moisturize your skin while you sleep, do chores, or lounge around the house.

Besides keeping skin hydrated, there are tons of other benefits of a humidifier. They can help your breathing, the purity of your air, your hair health, and even your wood furniture, but here's the gist of it: almost everything in your body (like your your nasal cavities) needs moisture to function properly. A good humidifier puts moisture back into your home, which is especially important during fall and winter, since low temperatures mean low moisture.

Once you decide to get a humidifier (which, IMO, everyone should), there are a few more decisions to make. Which is best: warm, cool, or ultrasonic? Truthfully, it depends on your needs. Cool mist humidifiers are great for children and hard water, because they're safe and help to filter out minerals and build-up. Warm mist helps to get rid of bacteria by first boiling the water, but can be dangerous around kids and pets. Ultrasonic models are great for people who hate white noise, because rather than a loud fan, they use high frequency sound waves (ones we can't hear) to turn water into a fine mist.

So now that you know what your options are, it's time to look at the best humidifiers in each category.
