It All Starts with Fresh, Clean Air
As Thanksgiving approaches, homeowners start to take inventory of their homes and prep for the extra foot traffic that the holidays often bring. If you’re a traditional host or hostess during the holidays, it’s important that your home is ready and comfortable for your family and guests.
One thing that tends to deteriorate inside our homes as the temperatures plunge is our indoor air quality. Why? Well, for one thing, cold air doesn’t hold as much water vapor as warmer air. So the colder the air, the drier the air inside your home will be. Unfortunately, this dry air can directly affect your skin and cause a multitude of issues. What’s a homeowner to do? We’ll tell you: Don’t end up being a turkey this season. Instead, honor National Healthy Skin Month this November by following our five tips for smoother skin—and healthier indoor air!
Top 5 Tips for Better Indoor Air and Softer Skin
Drinking plenty of water—every day—is the best-kept secret for supple, moist, hydrated skin. The facts don’t lie. Sixty percent of the adult body is water—with the skin actually containing 64 percent water. So, if you don’t drink enough water, you’ll easily become dehydrated and suffer from dry skin. Carry a water bottle with you whenever you can and sip from it frequently.
Check for air leaks.
Are there drafty spots inside of your home? If cold air is leaking into your home, it could manifest its wrath on your skin. Again, cold air doesn’t retain as much moisture as warmer air. So, your skin could fall victim to dryness if chilly air is sneaking indoors. If you have concerns about air leaks, call us!
Lather up that skin!
Moisturizing is a great solution for smoother skin. Keep lotion on hand throughout the day and apply it regularly—especially during the cooler months of the year. Your skin will thank you.
Boost that IAQ.
Indoor air quality is not something you should take lightly, especially when you consider that allergens, bacteria, dust mites, chemicals and other types of “bad guys” can be floating around in it. When these contaminants are ignored, they can cause unwelcome ailments, such as sinus pain, headaches, asthma flare ups, dry skin and so much more. Miller’s installs, repairs and replaces air purifiers, air cleaners and UV light filtration systems so your indoor air is always 100% at its best.
Kick those dead skin cells to the curb on the regular. There are many products on the market that help with exfoliation—the practice of removing dead skin cells. When you treat your skin to special care, it will be healthier and smoother all day long.
