Moisture is all around us! It makes up about 60% of our body weight. It's in the atmosphere in the form of humidity. Every system in our body depends on it. And, every day we lose moisture through our breath, perspiration, and other bodily functions.
Most of us know the parched feeling after a long flight or a cold, dry night – the effects are often visible with flakey skin, stuffy noses, and chapped lips.
Drinking plenty of water is important to hydrating your body from the inside out, but restoring essential moisture from the outside in is equally important. Too little humidity can create issues for your body, pets, and even your home.
