While updating your skincare routine is necessary for skin health so is giving your home a seasonal refresh. Swapping out bedding, loading up on superfoods, and amping up the airflow are just a few ways to help keep your skin on point.
Heating systems like radiators can make the indoor air even drier which is why a good humidifier is a game-changer. Its main job is breaking water into mist and releasing it into the atmosphere, increasing the moisture content of the air. "Low humidity levels degrade the skin's natural moisture barrier, which can lead to flaking, cracking, and peeling," says New York City board-certified dermatologist Dendy Engelman. To boost hydration in your home, try one of these skin-friendly humidifiers.
Diffusers, on the other hand, are primarily used for diffusing essential oils in the air for aromatherapy purposes.

While cotton is known for its breathability, making it an ideal summer choice, satin absorbs less moisture than cotton, so your skin stays more hydrated on silk than it does on percale cotton. And because satin won't soak up your night creams or moisturizers, your skin (not your sheets) stays hydrated.
Satin isn’t as drying as cotton, so it makes it easier to maintain the skin’s hydration.
