There are a zillion and one things to love about cooler weather. You’ve got your cozy candles, throw blankets, oversized knits, and just generally more Mariah Carey in your life (IYKYK). But all of those good things, unfortunately, mean that the crisp winter air is probably turning your face into a dry hot mess, right? And there are only so many times you can hop off a Zoom meeting to slather on more moisturizer before your boss starts asking questions. So, like, what are you supposed to do?

Enter, the unsung hero of skincare: mini humidifiers.

While it shouldn’t entirely replace your skincare routine, placing a tiny humidifier next to your computer is a super-easy way to curb that dryness and irritation you might be experiencing. Plus, the experts over at the American Academy of Dermatology fully recommend investing in one, so you know it’s legit. Just plug it in and let the soft, moist air puff up and coddle your cracked skin.
