Easy Solutions for Dry Sinuses & Dry Skin

Winter air is dry on the skin and sinuses. Artificial heat is dry and irritating as well, making winter a miserable time for some allergy sufferers. Here are some tips for hydrating dry skin and sinuses during the winter:

Clear WaterDrink plenty of water. Drink more fluids to restore lost moisture to skin and sinus membranes.

Shower faster. A short bath or shower isn't as harsh on the skin, and warm water is more gentle on the skin than extremely hot water.

Vanicream Skin CreamMoisturize after your shower. Vanicream Skin Cream and Vacicream Lite Lotion are recommended by dermatologists and enormously popular among people with sensitive skin.

Breathe-ease XL Nasal Wash SystemIrrigate your nose and sinuses. Saline sprays and saline irrigation kits help to keep membranes moist and wash away allergens, germs, and other irritants.

Humidifier Use a humidifier. Humidifiers restore moisture to the dry air. But you don't want your relative humidity to get too high, or mold and dust mites will become a problem. Use a humidity gauge to keep your relative humidity just below 50 percent.

Visit the Humidifier Buying Guide to learn how to choose the humidifier that's right for you.
