Since women in the housing economy are always on the go, they may not realize when their allergies are flaring and how it affects their skin. Traveling from house to house can spark allergies, making your skin look lackluster. However, there is help.
An allergy is your immune system overreacting, as if it’s under attack, according to Marcella Pick, OB/GYN NP. As a result, your body releases antibodies which cause inflammation.
According to WebMD, 55 percent of people in the U.S. “test positive to one or more allergens,” and in the last 10 to 15 years, ragweed pollen season has increased by four weeks which contributes to four million workdays lost each year.
Whether you choose a natural approach, or an over-the-counter medicine, relief is available. Check out the following skin problems caused by allergies and how you can remedy it.
- Puffy Skin
If you look more tired than usual and have puffy eyes, allergies may be the culprit. To fix this, New York City dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D. recommends taking an anti-inflammatory antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Allegra. Another solution is to place ice packs underneath your eye area.
- Red Skin
If you look like Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and it’s not Christmas season yet, something needs to change. When we constantly blow our noses, redness develops. Apply a serum that contains caffeine to reduce redness.
- Dry Skin
Peeling skin caused by constantly blowing your nose is not attractive, nor is it conducive to a good first impression when meeting clients. To combat this, apply moisturizer that doesn’t contain fragrance to the skin to keep it hydrated.
- Clean House
Indoor air pollution can be worse than outdoor air pollution depending on whether the owner smokes. Get rid of cleaning products that contain unsafe chemicals, perfume soaps, and house plants that irritate your nose.
Allergies can interfere with the lives of many women, but they don’t have to. By utilizing some tricks and getting rid of unhealthy products, you’ll be on your way to clear skin.
