Try it when: Your throat feels dry.
How it works: A humidifier keeps the air around you moist. That’s important, since “indoor heat and arid air may dry out the mucous membranes,” says Michael Finkelstein, a holistic physician in Westchester County, New York.
Good to know: Keep the humidifier’s water tank and filter clean to prevent the growth of mold, which can worsen symptoms and, in some cases, lead to lung issues.
