Need dehumidifier for bathroom

I’m a real girly girl when it comes to only a few aspects of my life. I’m generally a tough, rough and tumble kind of person, but I’ll admit to certain habits that are quite stereotypically womanly. For instance, I love to do my hair and makeup. I take a long time to shower and get prepped for my day every morning, and I enjoy feeling pretty. The only downside is this puts a lot of extra stress on my bathroom. We have an older house with an outdated HVAC system, and sometimes the air quality control is less than ideal. The bathroom has a pretty low quality ventilation system, and the air withdrawal fan is not very efficient. Whenever I take a shower there is so much steam built up in the room that it takes an hour or so to get all the humidity out of the air. All of this extra moisture hanging around has lead to a huge problem; the development of mold and mildew all around the small space. I’ve tried to cut my showers short in order to prevent some of the moisture buildup, but even the condensed version of my morning routine leaves a ton of steam in the room. The air conditioning that we have only marginally helps to remove the extra moisture, so I’ve been trying to find another solution. It looks like my best bet is to invest in a dehumidifier for the bathroom, and I should be able to prevent the mildew overgrowth to a reasonable degree.
