Battling Hay Fever! Yes it’s that season again (as hay fever sufferers probably have already noticed!) where birds are singing, the breeze feels nice, we can finally warm up a bit and smell the flowers…. Then explode into a sight of sneeze attacks and puffiness BUT all is not lost, you don’t have to put up with itchy eyes or sneeze attacks anymore!
Not with these 5 tips that will help you kick hay fever to the curb!
5 Cool Ass Handy Tips for
Surviving Hay Fever Season
Cool Ass Handy Tip 1 – Apples & Onions
Yep Apples and Onions, (not together but I bet you thought that initially hehe but back to the point) like many foods (apples and onions being the most common), they contain natural antihistamines, they also are recorded to help ease the symptoms of allergic reactions.
Also Vitamin C contains natural antihistamines, so hit up fruit and vegetables with Vitamin C in it too!
Cool Ass Handy Tip 2 – Hang Your Clothes Inside
Instead of hanging your clothes outside to dry, consider a place inside for your garments to dry, when they’re outside they can trap pollen making it a losing battle as soon as you get dressed.
Cool Ass Handy Tip 3 – Honey
This tip is most beneficial when you source local honey, locally sourced honey act as a natural immunotherapy, it gives your body a daily dose of the allergen and the opportunity for your body to get used to it and build up a resistance to it.
Honey can do so much and with the bonus of Honey NEVER going off, you won’t have to worry about having to throw any away.
Cool Ass Handy Tip 4 – Sunglasses
That’s right, more than just a fashion accessory; sunglasses are a brilliant and effective tool for surviving your hay fever season.
Wraparound sunglasses act as a shield for your eyes, which is one of the primary ways pollen enters the body. Also being a major attraction to spores, sunglasses protect your nasal passage (the other primary entrance for pollen) by attracting majority of the said spores.
This tip is also perfect for those that have light as a trigger too!
Cool Ass Handy Tip 5 – Paw-Paw Ointment
Paw-Paw Ointment or Vaseline coated around the entrance of your nostrils can stop pollen before it gets into your nasal passage triggering a hay fever show. The pollen is attracted to your nasal passage but gets trapped in the paw-paw or Vaseline before it can get there.
BONUS Cool Ass Handy Tips
When you get home at the end of your day, change into something comfortable and get those other clothes in the wash to get rid of the day’s pollen.
Change Your Bed Sheets
Basic hygiene says you should change your bed sheets too, but in this case changing your bed sheets more often can help your sleep quality.
So let’s get ready to kick Hay Fever to the curb and enjoy the outdoors freely! :D
Talk soon and remember; Life’s better, naturally.
