Winter is here! Nothing can get in the way of all the joy the holiday season brings to us, except our seasonal allergies. Winter allergies can sneak up on us but there are many ways to help treat your allergies. Try some of the suggestions below to make your holiday season about your loved ones instead of your pesky allergies.
Here are some common winter allergies you might be experiencing and how to treat them!
Dust & Dust Mites: Dust can come from anything. It contains skin flakes from humans and pets, and our homes are dust catchers. Breathing in the dust can lead to sneezing, coughing, or a cold. To avoid excess dust and dust mites, try:
Vacuuming your floors
Wiping the dust off all surfaces
Closing your window to keep dust out
Feet Allergy: Feet are known to be super dry due to the lack of oil glands. The cold, dry air, makes our feet even drier which can lead to itchiness and redness. There are lots of ways to help hydrate your feet this winter, try
Moisturizing your feet
Wearing socks overnight
Eating healthy fats to improve your skin's moisture barrier
Dermatitis, Rosacea, and Psoriasis: The cold weather makes our skin inflamed, dry, and super itchy. During this time of the year, you probably see people the most which might make you feel a little self-conscience having dry patches and red bumps on your skin. No worries! There are many skin products to help relieve these skin conditions. Try:
Using a humidifier to add moisture to the dry, winter air
Wear loose, warm layers
LEMYKA Healing Lotion, made with all-natural ingredients
We hope you have a wonderful winter free of annoying allergies!
