How to Protect Your Skin from Seasonal Allergies

Your skin is exposed to many impurities from the environment and it often becomes more sensitive because these impurities can cause irritations and allergies that lower its ability to defend itself. Seasonal allergies are constant threats to your skin’s health and they must be treated with extra care in order to prevent the damage on your skin. Here are some tips to help you protect your skin from seasonal allergies.

Wash your hands more often

In peak allergy season, your hands get into contact with many things that can be covered in allergens like dust, pet dander or pollen so, you need to pay more attention to your hands’ hygiene. Wash your hands very well after you touch something that could irritate you and avoid touching your face to prevent allergens from getting into your pores.

Keep allergens away from your hair

Your hair also captures a bunch of allergens that stick to you and can worsen your allergy symptoms so it’s best to wash your hair before going to bed to prevent allergens from getting inside your pillow and into your skin. If possible, cover your hair while outside and shake it very well before getting inside the house to remove the loose pollen.

Remove allergens from the air

The air you breathe is filled with allergens that can affect the aspect of your skin and even cause acne breakouts. The best way to eliminate the air impurities is to filter the air with an air purifier that can keep allergens away from you. If you experience skin allergy symptoms at home or at the office, or if you want to prevent outdoor allergens from getting inside your house, you must have an air purifier within reach.

Use Aloe Vera to soothe the skin

If your skin gets itchy and you notice red spots on it, apply some Aloe Vera gel to soothe the discomfort and heal the allergy. Aloe Vera is a natural antibiotic and has amazing properties in healing many skin problems including rashes and irritations. If you don’t have the plant within reach, try a cream based on natural Aloe Vera gel to calm your skin and prevent further allergic reactions.
