We all love spring and the magic that comes with it. Nature is coming back to life after long and cold winter. Trees and flowers are blooming. Everything is colorful and the sun is finally shining.
But with all that natural beauty comes one very unpleasant issue – Spring Allergies!
All the people who suffer from this problem know how all the sneezing, sniffling and eye itching can be very disturbing because there is no actual cure for that. And you can not just hide from that and sit inside your homes and wait for spring to pass.
I know that we can not offer you the actual answer how to solve that spring problem, but we can recommend you and give you a few tips how to reduce the symptoms of spring allergies.
Check out a few advises hot to reduce the spring allergies symptoms
- Try to stay indoors when a strong wind blows and in the morning (morning is the time when the pollen count is the highest) – if possible.
- During the pollen season, keep windows closed. Instead, use air-conditioning and air purifier.
- Wear clothes made of natural materials. Synthetic materials are more prone to attract pollen.
- Shower whenever you come from outside and wash your hair every evening because pollen stays on your body, especially on your hair.
- Keep your house clean. And while vacuuming use a mask because the vacuum cleaner lifts all the dust and pollen up into the air.
- Eat right foods. Yes, some foods can help you reduce the symptoms. Those foods are the one that is rich in antioxidants. For example apples, fish, nuts, tomatoes, etc.
- Peppermint and chamomile tea can be helpful. So make sure you consume them during the pollen season.
- Add vitamin supplements like multivitamin and minerals to your daily routine. Can’t be harmful!
- Clear your sinuses. You can use salt water, but the better solution is to steam your sinuses with a bowl of hot water, some herbs in it and a towel over you head.
- When outside wear glasses. Glasses don’t only protect your eyes from the sun, but also keep the pollen away from your eyes.
- And the final, and not so natural solution: use antihistamines. But be careful with those and do not use them before you consult with your doctor. Some studies show that they can get you sleepy, or even get addicted to them.
