Seasonal allergies are a real struggle for some. Spring is upon us which for most is very exciting, however many are finding ways to protect themselves from the allergies that crop up during this seasonal change.
Being outside can easily cause your hands to get dirty. With the change of season pollen and dust particles is a guarantee. If you are prone to allergies, you’re likely to be affected. Clean your hands as often as possible and be careful when rubbing your eyes.
While contact lenses are perfectly fine if you are planning to spend an extended amount of time outdoors perhaps consider glasses instead. Glasses will protect your eyes from dust particles a lot better than contacts. Contact lenses are susceptible to a build of particles which can lead to infection and irritation of the eye.
Whether you are partaking in extreme outdoor activities or merely having a braai, it’s important to always wear the necessary protective eyewear to protect your eyes from the smoke and the harmful UV rays.
Pollen and dust particles can quickly make their way into your home during spring. Do yourself a favour and invest in an air purifier so that you are safe inside your home as well.
