Does your throat tend to feel especially scratchy in dry winter months? The backs of your hands, too, begin to look ashy and dehydrated in the cold. Among other reasons, it could be that the air around you is not doing you any favours. Make up for that lack of moisture with a portable humidifier in your workspace or at home.

Let’s not forget the allergens and suspended dust in the atmosphere. Whatever is coming in through your air ducts – pollen, mould or bacteria – a quality air purifier can capture it with a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter. Wave goodbye to allergies and chapped lips this winter, because we bring you our picks of the best air purifiers and humidifiers listed on Amazon.

LEVOIT Air Purifier for Home, H13 True HEPA Filter for Allergies and Pets

Levoit’s air purifier employs a three-stage filtration system. In other words, you’re tackling pet fur, dust and cooking smells around you, all in one. The appliance is compact enough to sit comfortably on a coffee table or a bedside drawer. Every hour, the purifier will circulate the air over four times, operating at low decibels of 25db – this is quieter than the sound of pouring water. Whenever it is time for a filter replacement, the device will let you know.

Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty on the product for Dh20 and two years for Dh25.

Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 3C - White, WiFi Connection and Digital LED Display

Xiaomi Mi’s air purifier comes in a stylish block design in white. You can find the three-layered HEPA filter in here as well. A digital LED display tells you the current quality of air, using a colour bar – green means it is fresh and clean as opposed to red. Its most convenient feature is its built-in Wi-Fi to which you can connect using the Mi Home application on your phone. Control the device even when you’re away so that your pets and children are breathing clean air.

Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty on the product for Dh25 and two years for Dh32.

Herilios Air Purifier, Air Cleaner with 3-in-1 True HEPA Filter

Equipped with a HEPA filter, Herilios’ air purifier is smaller than most but operates just as well. It has all the basics down with a quiet running time of 25 decibels and different speed levels for your convenience. Its sleek design lets you select options with a touch, even reminding you about a filter replacement with a red warning light.

Black+Decker 3.0-litre Compact Ultrasonic Air Humidifier

Let’s look at our humidifier options. Starting off with Black+Decker’s cubic air humidifier for home and office, this device has a water tank capacity of three litres. All your water for mist will be filtered first, so the quality is never compromised. If you want to spice it up, add a few drops of essential oils in the special compartment to add a subtle fragrance to your room. Simply rotate the nozzle to control the direction of the mist.

Warranty: The manufacturer offers a two-year warranty on the product. Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty on the product for Dh20 and two years for Dh25.

Herilios Humidifier for Bedroom, 4L Ultrasonic Cool Mist Air Humidifier

A slightly larger humidifier, Herilios’ device is more suitable for the entire home. It comes with a four-litre water tank that will never run out during the night, giving you 30 hours at least. You can even select your desired level of humidity from the three provided. Do note, however, that this humidifier is not compatible with essential oils.

ASAKUKI 500ml Premium, Essential Oil Diffuser

Something more than a humidifier is Asakuki’s essential oil diffuser. Two-in-one, the device gives you a 500ml water tank for mist and seven LED light colours from blue to purple. It turns off automatically so you don’t have to worry about leaving it overnight. Simply add a few drops to the water and watch it spray fine mist that is slightly scented.

Warranty: The manufacturer offers one year of technical support.
