Manage allergy symptoms this spring and summer with these practical tips.
Runny nose getting you down? Peak allergy season is upon us and pollen from trees (in the spring) and grass (in the summer) are infamous for taking immune systems hostage. If you’re suffering through watery eyes, sneezing and a drippy or congested nose, it’s time to act. Try these tricks to get relief from bothersome allergy symptoms so you can get on with your day.
Keep clothes pollen free
Avoid hanging laundry outside to dry and remove your clothes and shower immediately after outdoor activities. Frequently rinse pets, too.
Manage your lawn
Keep the grass in your yard as short as possible—or transition to rocks, sand and water features or low-pollen ground cover like Irish Moss, Bunch or Dichondra.
Stay inside in the morning
Pollen counts are often highest in the morning and early afternoon. Stay indoors during peak hours and keep an eye on pollen forecasts when planning weekly activities.
Rinse your sinuses
Flush your nasal passage with saline solution to get rid of built-up mucus and allergens.
Take an antihistamine
Histamine is the chemical that gets released when your body tries to combat allergens—and it’s what’s responsible for your symptoms. Take an oral antihistamine like REACTINE®
