Spring is one of the best times of the year; the temperature is rising, the birds are chirping, the trees are blooming -and in comes the pollen. While it’s still a mystery as to why humans have allergies to pollen after all these years (evolution where you at?!), here are few tried and true methods for coping with pollen
1. Turn it down a notch.
Shut the windows and turn up the air-conditioning to keep out pollen. Avoid using a fan that can whirl around dust and pet hair!
2. Be gone with the wind.
This should be no surprise -pollen travels!. Try to stay inside when it’s exceptionally windy outside or keep your activities indoors (have you tried Plae Hard?)
3. Fresh cut lawn for fresh air to breathe.
Make sure to keep the lawn tidy. If your allergies are bad, try wearing a dust mask while mowing the lawn, or if you are able, find a lawn company that can do this for you (we have some great ones in our directory). Remember to wash your clothes after being outdoors, as pollen can stick to fabric.
4. Stay stylish and protected.
While your skin needs a certain amount of Vitamin D, your eyes need none. Not only that, but excess exposure to pollen can cause red, dry eyes. Find a pair of sunglasses you feel confident in and wear them as often as you can.
5. Shower before bed.
Take a shower before you catch those ZZZ’s. Pollen sticks to fabric, skin and hair leaving a surprising amount on places like your bed.
