Air Force In the fight against dry winter skin, function has historically trumped form—until now, anyway. After 643 prototypes and $60 million worth of engineering, Dyson has managed to level the playing field with its recently released humidifier ($500). The oval-shaped device, which comes in three colors, is sleek enough to showcase in your living room while still delivering on its moisture-infusing promise. Yes, it’ll cost you, but consider this: Pre-mist, every water droplet is zapped twice with UV light, killing 99 percent of bacteria that would otherwise be floating around in your space. Supple skin and immaculate air—who can put a price on that?
In the summer, the humidifier doubles as a fan.
