With spring in full bloom, pollen particles in the air increase, causing a lot of trouble for people with pollen allergies. To prevent pollen allergies in spring, you must do a good job of basic skin care.
Once pollen comes in contact with the skin in spring it may cause skin problems. However, it is actually difficult to keep pollen out of your body during this glorious spring season, so to prevent pollen allergy, you must do the following things.
What are Pollen Allergies?
These diseases are common in allergology, and their incidence is increasing year by year, seriously affecting human health. Pollen is the male germ cell of various plants, equivalent to mammalian sperm, and a grain of pollen is a fertilization unit.
When someone inhales pollen, an allergic reaction is produced, namely pollen allergy, also known as “seasonal allergic rhinitis”, which is a series of pathophysiological processes caused by atopic patients after being sensitized by pollen, mainly manifested as cicatricial inflammation of the respiratory tract and conjunctiva, which can be accompanied by lesions of the skin and other organs. Pollen allergy has become a veritable epidemic.
How can you tell if you have a pollen allergy?
Sneezing up to dozens of times, clear runny nose, watery eyes, nasal congestion, itchy nose, eyes, ears and palate. In children, itchy eyes and swollen eyelids are often accompanied by watery or purulent mucus secretions.
2: Go To The Hospital To Confirm The Diagnosis
If any of the above conditions occur, go to the hospital promptly. If pollen allergy is detected in time and controlled with medication, the symptoms can be improved in time. If there will be serious asthma attacks and breathing difficulties, it is already a serious pollen allergy, which can sometimes be life-threatening.

Tips To Prevent Pollen Allergy
Be scientific in skin care. After cleansing your skin, take care of your skin carefully, both during the day and at night. You can apply night cream, or maintenance honey, to nourish your skin at night.
To cleanse the skin reasonably. Do clean and care for your skin every night, and wash your face preferably with water with vinegar added, because vinegar can be used for sterilization.
To do a good job of self-protection of the face. When you go out, you can wear a mask or sunglasses to reduce the contact between your skin and the outside world and reduce the attack of pollen on your skin.
Stay outside as little as possible during the day, especially at times of the day when the pollen index is high, such as in the evening on sunny days. Whenever possible, choose times when the pollen index is lowest, such as early in the morning, late at night, or after a rain shower, when you want to do outdoor activities and various sports. Wear a mask when you go out.
Wear glasses. Wearing glasses can reduce the chance of your eyes being affected, so replace contact lenses with glasses with lenses, or bring sunglasses when you go out.
Stay indoors. Dry your clothes inside if possible (a clothes dryer is better) and leave the windows on your balcony open as much as possible at this time.
Cleanse your face: remove dirt and pollen gently and thoroughly.
It is especially important to cleanse your face with plenty of foam immediately after you get home, and it is also especially important to rinse it off with warm water at about 32°C, rubbing the rich foam back and forth.
Apply lotion: vigorous tapping must be avoided. Please apply with gentle pressure on the palm of your hand.
Rubbing and patting can cause more damage to the skin. Be careful not to rub against the skin, rub evenly with the feeling of pressing down from above, and press down quickly with the palm of your hand.
Use beauty lotion: For pollen-allergic skin, beauty lotion is necessary to give your skin enough nutrients.
For rough skin and acne, use vitamin C, which helps regenerate cells and has an anti-acidifying effect, and for dryness, use a lotion that contains ceramides and other moisturizing ingredients.
Lotions and creams for moisturizing: For moisturizing purposes, it is necessary to use lotions and creams.
Even if it is just a lotion and cream that promotes the absorption of lotion and beauty solution, it is still essential. If you skip applying them because you hate stickiness, you may increase sebum secretion, especially in dry areas where overlapping application is necessary.
