Y’all! I live for Spring. I am someone who constantly craves sunlight, warm air, and the great outdoors. When the weather is cool, my Floridian skin doesn’t love being outside nearly as much. That’s why March is my month! It’s the month where my body recharges from all those overcast-yy winter days. The month where the light-bulb comes back on and I feel a little more like “me” again. The month when seasonal allergies drives everyone crazy, but we overlook them because (YES) the sun is awake again!
“The [sun] is awake, so I’m awake, and we have to play!”
Don’t let seasonal allergies hold you back mama! There are many ways to minimalize symptoms of seasonal allergies (see tips below), including using an air purifier in your home. Guardian Technologies has unveiled the new PureGuardian® Large Room Hi-Performance Tower Console Air Purifier (AC9400), its top of the line air purifier equipped with the highest Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) rating of all Guardian Technologies air purifiers available.
7 Ways to to Minimize Allergens This Spring
Keep windows closed at all times to prevent pollen from drifting into your home. Instead, cool your home with air conditioning, which also cleans and dries the air (American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology).
Use an air filter that has a small-particle or HEPA filter. Try adjusting your air filter so that it directs clean air toward your head when you sleep (Mayo Clinic).
Capture dust mites, pollen, pet dander and many other allergy triggers with Guardian Technologies’ new AC4900 air purifier. It uses multiple levels of cleaning including HEPA, UV-C and charcoal to help improve your indoor air quality
Allergens such as pollen tend to stick to fabrics, which allows them to be deposited on furniture and other surfaces when you come in from outside. Wash bedding, pajamas and clothes as often as possible to rid them of troublesome allergens during the spring season (WebMD).
Breathing in steam from hot water in a sink or from the shower helps to thin out the mucus in your nose and sinuses and reduce inflammation. As a result, your breathing should return to normal, at least for a short period (Healthline).
Minimize activities in the early morning – between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. – when pollen is typically released (Covenant Health).
Shower after spending time outside– pollen can also collect on your hair and skin, aggravating symptoms (American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology).
