Does air conditioning dry out the air?

The summer has been really hot and fans have not been the easiest to get hold of. And when you go to bed, you may, like many others, find it difficult to fall asleep if it is hot.

Air conditioning and you.

If you are lucky, you have air conditioning at home, but the question is do you know how your skin is affected by sleeping with it on?

The dermatologist says that if you sleep with your AC on during the night, you risk getting dry skin.

Air conditioning draws fluid from the air to reduce humidity. But when the air is dry, it takes the moisture from the skin and it dries out the skin.

So it can be difficult for you, especially if your skin is already believed. For the skin to feel good and also to heal, the water level must be maintained.

If you really want to get your air conditioning running during the night, you can think about lubricating your face with a thick layer of something that is moisturizing. This way you can protect your skin from getting rid of fluid all night.

Indoor plants

This is one of the most effective ways to increase humidity in any part of your house. Plants can help to reduce the dryness by introducing moisture in the surrounding air. The soil found in a potted plant also helps retain additional moisture that can be absorbed into a room when the aircon dries the air.

3. Use Water Containers

Another option you can use to raise humidity levels in an air-conditioned room is to place several containers filled with water around your home. The containers should be left open to allow the water to evaporate and increase humidity.

4. Water Fountain
