Traveling rejuvenates me in every possible way, except when it comes to my skin. The combination of the added stress of travel, dry air in flight, and variable weather conditions means my pimple patches and setting powder have their work cut out for them.
My beautician, Chanel Lowe from Chanel aestheticreassured me that the stress of travel also impacts a lot of other people’s skin, which explains all the “GRWM inside an airplane” videos.
“Everyone’s skin reacts differently during travel, depending on where you’re going and what weather conditions you encounter. It’s common for people’s skin to respond well to higher humidity levels, so going somewhere tropical would probably be good for your skin.
Chanel continues:Plus, if you plan to spend a lot of time in the sun and have sensitive skin, your skin may need even more support with soothing skincare ingredients and Sunscreen.”
I don’t (unfortunately) always travel somewhere tropical. And if so, it might not be the best time of year to get that tropical glow. So what can I do to support my skin?
If I were in the comfort of my own home, I would use a humidifier to help my skin retain moisture when I sleep, but it’s way too big to pack when I travel. So when Hey Dewy released his new Wireless facial humidifierI jumped at the chance to give my skin the same love I get at home – on the road.
Check out Hey Dewy’s wireless facial humidifier
This small but mighty cordless rechargeable facial humidifier from Hey Dewy comes in 5 different color options that can match any aesthetic. On a full battery charge, the wireless facial humidifier gives you up to 8 hours of mist using ultrasonic wave technology, making it a quiet device that blends effortlessly into any home environment at a price of $60.
From unboxing to humidifying, this device takes less than 5 minutes to set up, although I recommend fully charging it before your first use. A 5′ USB power cord is included with the humidifier along with a 6.5″ filter and a brief instruction manual. Additional filters are available for purchase on the Hey Dewy website.
Does the Hey Dewy Cordless Facial Humidifier Really it’s worth it?
I’ve been using the Hey Dewy Cordless Facial Humidifier for about 2 months now and have noticed that my combination (oily prone) skin is smoother and more radiant since using it.
And while I love this humidifier, I TO DO recommend consulting your dermatologist or esthetician before making any skin-related investments. When I looked at mine, she endorsed my use of the device, noting that it’s definitely a “luxury” (read: a pleasure to have, not a need) and can help absorption of the product.
She recommended that I pair the use of the facial humidifier with hydrating serums and finish my skincare routine with an occlusive to seal in all the extra moisture provided by the machine.
I can’t overstate how cute and easily portable this facial humidifier is. I move it from my desk to my bedside table and back without batting an eyelid. It’s like carrying your cup of water from room to room.
One complaint I have with humidors is that they are notoriously difficult to clean, but Hey Dewy manages to avoid that! The facial humidifier has very few components and you can disassemble everything in a few turns. Easy disassembly facilitates cleaning and changing the filter.
Since keeping humidors clean is the most important part of owning them, Hey Dewy gets bonus points for making the process easier.
Unfortunately, if you want to add essential oils to your humidifier, you’ll have to look elsewhere for a device. This humidifier is specifically for the face and Hey Dewy recommends not adding any. essential oils to the device as they can sensitize the skin.

I love taking the Hey Dewy Humidifier on the road with me to use during my post-flight skin care. I also like to leave it running while I sleep. While it’s not designed to humidify a large room like some humidifiers, I found it does what it should if I place it close enough to my face on my nightstand.
Overall, for the price, this humidifier is an easy win in the portable device category!
