Get glowing with the $39 gadget that works wonders on dry skin.


Prior to the pandemic, I viewed my at-home skincare routine as something to adhere to in the morning and at night. Not once did I stop to consider the countless hours of potential self-care that lay in between. (After all, it’s not like I could slap on a sheet mask between meetings at the office while my concerned coworkers looked on.) But as the reality of permanently working from home began to sink in, I coped by shopping online for beauty buys that I could utilize during the eight-plus hours spent behind the glare of my laptop. And, despite all of the glow-inducing goops and clarifying skin masks I’ve amassed since mid-March, the best beauty find I’ve bought thus far is Hey Dewy’s mini facial humidifier.

Am I late to the skin-soothing benefits of humidifiers? Probably. But plugging in a bulky steam machine for the sake of improved air moisture never sounded like it was worth the time or hassle. That all changed once Hey Dewy’s mini facial humidifier arrived in the mail.

The compact container is roughly the size of a soda can, but its most awe-inspiring feature is its USB portability. You can quickly plug the humidifier into your phone charger or car port when you’re on the go. Or, if you’re forced to stare at a computer screen between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., you can plug the USB into your laptop to help effortlessly hydrate your skin throughout the work day.

Once plugged in, the humidifier emits a continuous mist that lasts for up to 10 hours. The machine is virtually silent too, so you can WFH while simultaneously working on your complexion. That, and it helps improve the air quality in whatever space of solitude you call home.

“It’s the same size as the picture and works great,” wrote one Hey Dewy reviewer. “I love it for my face, especially after the sun or a pool day.” Pick up a portable facial humidifier at Revolve, and up your self-care routine in the process.
