From Puricare LG to Dyson, here are the best personal air purifiers to keep the air you breathe clean wherever you go

The pandemic has left us a little more health-conscious—for all the right reasons. Whether it’s mask-wearing, healthy eating or buying products that’ll help keep us safe. As most of us are staying home in lockdown or in quarantine, we also have to make sure that our home environment is just as clean.

Colds, viruses, bacteria and fine-dust can easily spread whether it’s at home, in the office or even outside. One of the best ways to filter out the dust, pollen and other airborne microorganisms is to use an air purifier. We round up the best small, portable and wearable air purifiers that will clean the ambient air around you wherever you go.
