As spring settles in, so can your allergies. Don’t let that hold you back. Have a strategy and keep those allergies under control while you enjoy the outdoors this blooming season.
How Outdoor Lovers Can Fight Off Seasonal Allergies
Seasonal allergies are no one’s favorite thing. It’s ironic how they pop up just when you’re getting ready to enjoy one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. Unmanaged allergies can really ruin your day, your week, or your entire spring. This time, that’s not happening.
Say goodbye to the times you had to stay locked up inside the house because simply peeking out the window would trigger your allergies. Here are some tips to help you tame those allergies and give you a better chance to enjoy all the beauty this season brings:
If you know you have allergies but have not made a trip to the doctor yet, this is the time to check that off your to-do list. You need to find out what really causes your allergies if you’re ever going to be able to manage them.
Discover Which Are the Best Times to Be Outside
There are certain hours during the day where the air is packed with pollen. Hot, dry or windy weather tend to contribute to this, too. There are apps that can give you more accurate information on this topic and can help you plan better for the next time you decide to go on an outdoor adventure.
Never Leave without Your Meds
If you need meds, you need meds. Try to take them before you leave and also, make sure you carry them with you, just in case you need an extra dose.
Certain attire can help you manage your allergies a little better. Sunglasses and hats can be real lifesavers, as they can keep allergens out of your eyes and hair. For things like yard work or cutting the grass, wearing a pollen mask is the best idea.
Wash Your Clothes As Soon As You Get Home
Don’t be walking around, sitting around or laying down in your dirty, allergen-filled clothes when you get back home. As soon as you step foot in your house, your clothes need to go in the washer. Taking a quick shower and even washing your hair is also a good idea, just to make sure you get rid of all allergens you may be carrying on you.
