DID YOU KNOW?

When we breathe in air, the nose prepares it by humidifying and warming the air before it reaches our lungs. A highly sophisticated, multi-layer structure called turbinates, moisturises and humidifies the air as it passes through the nose. Have you ever noticed your throat feeling dry when you’ve been breathing through your mouth for a long time? It’s because the air you breathed in wasn’t moisturised by your nose first.
