Winter Indoor Heating Can Be Health Hazard Warns Water and Health Researcher
Date:11/26/2013

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Winter is the worst time of year for dry skin, according to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. A primary cause of winter skin dehydration is that people spend much more time indoors, in rooms with insulated walls and windows, warmed by forced-air heating systems. Outdoor air is also more dehydrating in winter because cooler air is physically unable to hold as much airborne water vapor as warmer air.

The dryer the surrounding air, the greater the pressure on the skin’s natural water content to evaporate out of the skin and into the atmosphere.        

Sharon Kleyne is founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research; a research, education, technology and product development company specializing in fresh water, atmospheric water vapor and skin and eye dehydration. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® And Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®, the Research Center’s global signature products, provide a mist of 100% fresh water that instantly supplements eye and skin surface moisture depleted as a result of dry and polluted air. Kleyne hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

According to Kleyne, forced-air heating tends to suck in bacteria, skin particles and other household allergens such as mold spores. It then re-circulates them throughout the building. Filters can help clean the air they but remove only the largest particles and may add fiberglass to the air. Also, says Kleyne, if you take cold air, which naturally has a low humidity, and simply warm it up, this will not increase the air’s humidity unless you specifically add moisture.

Low humidity air, blown out a heating duct, according to Kleyne, can be extremely dehydrating to skin and eyes. The accompanying recirculated airborne bacteria, skin particles, and mold spores are also dehydrating to skin and eyes. They are also potentially allergenic and a source of disease.

Insulated walls and windows, Kleyne notes, add to the problem of winter skin and eye dehydration, especially in sealed, climate controlled buildings with little or no exchange with outside air.

In addition, says Kleyne, diet and stress levels tend to become less manageable during the holidays. Dehydration and health are major factors in determining how successfully a person handles stress in their lives.

Sharon Kleyne offers the following tips for avoiding skin dehydration caused by indoor winter air.
1. Bathe frequently to keep skin moist and hydrated.
2. Shower after bathing to wash off bacteria, allergens and dehydrating agents.
3. Keep a window cracked open somewhere in the house to let fresh air in, and mold spores and allergens out. This is especially important in the bathroom.
4. Apply a natural, pH-correct 100% water mist after bathing or whenever skin and eyes feel dry or irritated. Kleyne’s recommended water mist is Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® or Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® from Bio-Logic Aqua Research. Follow the mist application with a cream moisturizing lotion to seal in the newly added moisture.
5. Drink at least eight full glasses of pure water per day, in addition to all other fluid intake.
6. People are less susceptible to dehydration if they eat a proper diet and are well rested.
