We've found seven humidifiers that will reduce the risk of catching the flu this winter season.

It's not the sexiest news, but did you know that maintaining a proper humidity level in the home helps reduce your chance for catching the flu? We chatted with Dr. Ted Myatt, Sc. D., an expert for Vick's, who recommends a humidity level between 40 and 60%, especially during the bitter winter months when levels can drop as low as 10% (um, that's drier than the Sahara Desert!). We've found seven good-looking options that will pump up the moisture and kick the flu (and dry skin) to the curb.
