Say hello to summer and bye to hayfever: 5 tips to prevent it

Brought to you by Nasal Medical.

Hayfever is the absolute worst.

There I said it.

The life of a hay fever sufferer is never easy. From drippy eyes to itchy throats we get a tough old time of it, especially during the summer months when it seems like we are pretty much allergic to everything and anything.

But the good news is you don’t have to suffer in silence (or moan excessively to your co-workers every day).

Here are a few tried and tested ways to say adios to the sniffles this summer.

Wash your hair before bed

When you come home, take off the clothes you’ve worn outside. Shower and wash your hair before bed, otherwise, pollen will get all over your pillows. If you can’t be bothered, brush your hair and pop on a shower cap.

Use an allergy nasal filter

One of the best ways to fight hayfever is to use an allergy nasal filter which helps protect you from irritating airborne allergens such as pollen, dust, pet dander and polluted air. You simply pop the filter in your nose and it helps stop allergens and pollutants from entering your system. They’re actually really comfy and very discreet.

Take some honey 

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right? Taking just a little bit of local honey will help build up your immunity to the pollen in your area. It’s definitely worth a shot.

Dry your washing inside

Especially when the pollen count is high. This will stop pollen from getting into your clothes and even worse your bed sheets.

Wear your sunnies

Block out the haters and the pollen with a good pair of wide sunglasses that wrap around the sides of your face. This will help keep the pollen and dust particles that cause hayfever away from your eyes.
