Spring not only brings sunshine (if all goes well) and blooming nature, but also the hay fever season. For many of us, this means a period of sneezing, itchy eyes and a runny nose. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce these complaints. Here are five useful tips to get through the hay fever season, with a special focus on the importance of a good air purifier in your living environment.

1 Avoid pollen

It may sound obvious, but avoiding pollen as much as possible can significantly reduce your symptoms. Check the local pollen forecast and try to plan outdoor activities at times when the pollen concentration is lower, such as after a rain shower. Keep windows and doors closed on days with high pollen concentrations to prevent them from entering your home.

2 Protect yourself outdoors

When you go outside, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from floating pollen. A hat can also help prevent pollen from getting stuck in your hair and later coming into contact with your face or pillows. After returning home, consider changing your clothes and washing your hands and face thoroughly to remove pollen.

3 Strengthen your immune system

A strong immune system can help reduce the symptoms of hay fever. Provide a well-balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, adequate sleep and regular exercise. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as flaxseed and walnuts, and antioxidants such as berries, can also help improve resistance to allergies.

4 Natural remedies

There are several natural remedies that can provide relief from hay fever complaints. For example, it is known that local honey can help build resistance to pollen. Herbs such as nettle and botanical extracts such as quercetin are also popular for their natural antihistamine properties.

5 Invest in a good air purifier

One of the most effective ways to reduce your exposure to indoor allergens is to use an air purifier. Choose a model with a HEPA filter, which can filter up to 99.97% of airborne particles, including pollen, dust and other allergens. An air purifier helps improve the air quality in your home, which can reduce your hay fever symptoms.
