We ride in the car with the air conditioning or the heat blowing directly at our face. A majority of our time is spent indoors breathing in dry air which dries our sinuses. Cold weather outdoors can also cause inflammation in the sinuses. Be aware of this drying affect and take action before you get a dry sinus headache or take action when you do feel the symptoms.
