Anyone who suffers from allergies, I PHYSICALLY saw your torment this morning. See, everyone talks about pollen and pollen-count numbers and how horrible it all makes them feel, but I really didn’t understand it. That was until this morning, waiting outside for my 10th grade girls to hang-out for a bit. I put my phone down on the table, the wind blowing crazy while I was chatting away, and I glanced over and saw it – my phone was COVERED with pollen!

With it being that bad, there has to be some tricks and tips to protect yourself, right? Here are a few Everyday Health has found that could help you out, because seeing my phone like it was made me scared FOR you:

  1. Wear Sunglasses to Keep Pollen Out of Your Eyes: 

    Wearing sunglasses outside can reduce the amount of pollen or spores that get into your eyes. Allergy-irritated eyes are also more sensitive to sunlight, so stylish shades may help your eyes feel better, too.

  2. Travel Wisely During Pollen and Mold Seasons:

    If you take a road trip when the pollen count is high, make sure to keep your car windows closed. Before you begin your trip, start the car and turn on the air conditioner, then get out and let the air inside the car cool. If you can, travel early in the morning or in the evening.

  3. Keep Outdoor Pollens Outside:

    Take some simple precautions to keep outdoor pollens out of your home. Wear a mask if you work outside, and remove your work clothes before entering the house. It’s also good to shower right after coming in from yard work.

  4. Control Irritants Along With Allergens:

    Don’t smoke in your home, kindly ask house guests to smoke outside, and avoid wood fires and wood-burning stoves. Strong odors such as perfumes, paint fumes, hair sprays, disinfectants, and air fresheners can also set off an allergy attack.
