An optimum humidity level is 40%- 60% and this value is often not reached, particularly in winter, when cold air enters living spaces that are being artificially heated. This dry ambient air draws in moisture via any source which can result in dry skin and irritated eyes. Dry air is also bad news for allergy sufferers as dust particles spread more easily.
