- Prepare for the Outdoors: If you know you will be taking a trip outside, don't wait until you have your foot out the door to take your allergy relief remedy. Consuming a remedy about 2 hours before going out will help the active ingredients kick-in in time to relieve symptoms.
- Timing is Everything: Pollen counts are usually highest from 5 to 10 a.m. so try and move all outdoor activities to the afternoon. If you do head outdoors and plan to garden, mow the lawn or take on other allergen-stirring chores, be sure to wear a mask.
- Don't Throw Away Winter Relievers: Once spring cleaning comes along, many people don't think twice about throwing away cold & flu relievers used throughout the winter months. However, these remedies can come in handy during allergy season. If your allergy symptoms are lingering and your allergy meds aren't working, chances are you have a spring cold and will want those winter relievers in your cabinet. Zinc Gluconate Lozenges, like Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy Lozenges, can help soothe sore throats as well as help stop a spring cold in its tracks with its formula clinically proven to shorten the duration of a cold by almost half. Cold-EEZE can be taken by anyone ages 12 and up.
- Exercise More: Physical activity can help to relieve allergy symptoms through boosting and maintaining a healthy immune system. If you are trying to avoid the pollen outside, at-home workouts will help you get your daily dose of fitness without having to endure the pollen-filled air. To make the most of your at-home workout and burn extra calories, drink a Celsius®, Your Negative Calorie Drink™, prior to your workout to help you burn up to 100 calories, boost metabolism, reduce body fat and provide you energy for your springtime chores.
- Wash Your Hair: While outdoors, it's more than common to catch some pollen in your hair. Your beautiful, long locks are a magnet to any outdoor allergy triggers and can have you sneezing and sniffling all night long. If you don't take the time for a rinse, pollen will stick to anywhere your head will go - including your couch and pillow!
