The best way to keep your skin and sinuses happy this winter? A good humidifier

The unit uses an internal ultraviolet light and dual filters to clean its water tank supply and strip the environment of airborne toxins like bacteria and mold.

“It’s the more hygienic type,” explains Dyson data scientist Gergana Tatarova, who walked me through the machine’s cleansing process for tap water and air before they’re recirculated through the room.

We cannot say 100% because we haven’t tried it on every single bacteria in the world, but our microbiologist team is very serious.” An extra $100 buys you a Cryptomic model of the Humidify + Cool that also filters out formaldehyde, a feature popular in Asian countries where the pollutant is a more prominent threat.

The machine links with an Android/iOS app that can monitor your local external environment and provide reports on your indoor air quality, and it also pairs nicely with Alexa or Siri.

While it doesn’t feel as though it’s been dropped from the future like the Dyson, it checks most of the boxes I was searching for: prolonged, quasi-self-maintenance via a bacteria-busting Protec Humidifier Cleaning Ball that filters water inside the tank, and a digital display that monitors humidity levels to help me keep my space from getting clammy or dank.

As someone who easily gets dry, sandpaper hands in the winter, I find I have much softer skin and less chapped lips with this friendly humidifier gurgling on my desk each day as I work.” Just make sure you use distilled water in it, and give it a rinse with white vinegar periodically to kill bacteria.
