It’s that time of year! While the sunshine and beautiful flowers may help get you over those winter blues, the allergies that come along in the springtime can be a major bummer! To help relieve your symptoms, we’ve listed some of our favorite healthy remedies to fight off those allergies.
Blowing and rubbing your nose frequently, scratching itchy skin, and taking antihistamines are all very common actions that come along with allergies. While they may relieve your symptoms, they can also cause severe dry skin. In order to prevent and treat this dry skin, make sure you stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, avoid using harsh skincare products, use warm water instead of hot on your body, and use a moisturizer, like C2’s Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Creme.
Use cucumbers, cold spoons, or frozen tea bags on your eyes to reduce the puffiness. Staying hydrated is another important factor in relieving this allergy symptom and also helps keep it from coming back, so make sure you’re drinking a good amount of water each day and using hydrating skincare products such as C2’s Advanced Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer.
Red, Itchy Eyes
Use moist, green or black tea bags on your infected eye(s) for several minutes and repeat every few hours if needed. You can also try putting one drop of 100% castor oil in your eye(s) before going to bed. Castor oil has anti-inflammatory properties that will reduce swelling and relieve redness.
Try using a humidifier at night or a saline nose spray throughout the day. You can also try some of our Ageless Body Oil that will be coming out later this month. Next time you feel congested, switch out the petroleum jelly or Vapor Rub for your C2 Peppermint Ageless Body Oil. Pat it onto your chest and underneath your nose for a clarifying, minty remedy.
