Tackling Typical Hay Fever Issues
Hay fever affects 1 in 5 people in the UK and when your symptoms flare up, it can really ruin your day. With a bit of planning and prep, you can win the battle and get relief.
As the weather starts improving, there’s no doubt we’ll all be spending a bit more time outdoors soaking up that rare British sun. But with a lot of pollen in the air around Spring time, it’s important to take some measures to stay protected from hay fever. Hay fever sufferers have to put up with a lot and we take our hat’s off to them. It’s no longer an easy task stepping outside when the weather brightens up. You’ll need to make sure you’ve got your pocket tissues, your antihistamines even your sunglasses as an extra layer of protection.
There’s no sure way to get rid of hay fever all together, but there are some things you can do to minimise the affects and make sure you enjoy the summer time without sniffling away.
Here’s a helpful list of some of the things you can do with Ultrasun’s Lip Protection SPF30 to protect and keep yourself feeling fine as the weather improves!
1) Dot a little under your eyes
Give your eyes some relief from hay fever and airborne allergies this spring/summer. As well as protecting the delicate lip area against UVA & UVB rays, you can help tackle typical hay fever issues too! Enriched with blackcurrant seed oils, the Lip Protection SPF30 is fantastic for use on skin particularly if you you suffer from inflammation. Sounds like hay fever? We think so! Dot evenly underneath both eyes and spread using the top of the balm or your finger.
2) Dab a little under you nose
Anything you can do to stop pollen getting into your nose will help stop hay fever symptoms. One way to do this is by spreading a bit on the inside of the bottom of your nose. This should act as a trap for at least some of the pollen particles. Working as a barrier, it’s an extra precaution against allergens trying to enter your body. It even protects the ‘missed‘ upper lip area that’s often fairly delicate and forgotten about.
3) Wear sunglasses
Sunglasses can shield your eyes from more than just the sun. If itchy eyes are one of your hay fever symptoms, the right pair of shades can help keep pollen away. Wraparound styles are the most effective here and will pair nicely with Tip 1. Your ‘already‘ applied Ultrasun Lip will give an added shine to define your cheek bones and could potentially help keep any loose fitted glasses on!
