In almost every winter skincare guide on the internet, you’ll find a few tips that every dermatologist or skincare expert recommends. Generally, the idea is get more moisture, and one of the best ways to do that is with a humidifier. The bedside versions are great, but what if your office is one big box of stale, dry air? That’s 8-12 hours of dehydration! The jetsetter encounters a similar problem: recirculated, dry-as-a-bone airplane air and stuffy hotel rooms wreak havoc on skin and respiratory systems.
A portable humidifier might seem excessive (am I really going to carry one of those around??) but they’re actually amazing and incredibly handy to have on-the-go.
Here are five of our favorites: they’re easy to use and totally fabulous.
1. The BRUNO Tulip Stick Humidifier, $18
Doesn’t look like a humidifier, does it? Just slip this into a glass of water and you’ll have a blast of skin-quenching humidity for about two hours.

2. The Bottle Humidifier Mini by 11+, $49
For the design snob, this bottle humidifier is gorgeously simplistic and perfect for your bedroom, living room, or office.

It’s easy to use too: you pour water into the bottle, and the USB-powered battery moves the water, transforming it into mist. The humidifier comes with two filters, and has a bottle capacity of 550 ml.
