This is how seasonal allergies affect your skin

Once spring arrives, allergies arrive too. Most allergies in the spring are related to mold and pollen. The common allergy symptoms are sneezing, nasal congestion and itching.

The 2 main causes of allergies are:

  1. The trees produce small pollen cells that cause allergies; they can spread easily through the air due to the breeze. If you are allergic to it, you will begin to sneeze and feel itch in some parts of your body.
  2. Mold spores such as yeast and mold release seeds called spores that also spread by the wind very fast. The symptoms are sneezing, congestion, runny nose or pink eyes.

The presence of pollen and mold during the spring makes allergies become quite common, there are different types of allergies that can affect the health of people and leave consequences such as irritation, redness, pimples, itching, rashes and more, so it is necessary to pay special attention to your skin in order to avoid any damage caused by a seasonal allergy. To show off a luminous skin without redness, apply the following special masks for pigmentation and restore the color of the skin:

To reduce dark spots or stains, take a clean potato and cut it in half, add a few drops of water on the cut side of the raw potato, rub the potato with circular movements over the affected area. Wait 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

The avocado has vitamin C, which is good for pigmentation, you only need to crush the avocado until it is completely free of lumps, apply it on the skin and leave it for about 30 minutes, then rinse it with warm water

To restore the natural color of the skin, you should dilute the apple cider vinegar with water, apply the solution on the affected areas of the skin for about 5 minutes and rinse with warm water.

how seasonal allergies affect your skin

A skin allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to something that is normally harmless, causing the skin to become inflamed. An allergic reaction is what this is known as. Rashes, itching, burning, redness, pimples, hives, and swelling are all symptoms of an allergic reaction. A response can be triggered by a variety of allergies. Some of the most prevalent allergic skin problems are listed below:

Eczema is a skin condition in which the skin is easily inflamed, itchy, and dry. It is the most prevalent allergic skin condition, with children being more affected than adults. Eczema is caused by a combination of genetic (passed down from parents) and environmental causes. Asthma, food allergies, and seasonal allergies are all linked to it. Certain meals, stress, soaps and lotions, and cold and dry air can all trigger eczema flare-ups.

It’s crucial to be aware of all of your allergy symptoms, not just the most typical ones like itchy eyes and a runny nose. Hives, scaly patches, and eczema are examples of skin reactions to allergens. Scratching can cause long-term damage, such as scarring and increased skin sensitivity, in several circumstances.

Leave your irritated skin alone is the most crucial thing you can do for it. Scratching dry skin can cause additional histamines to be released, causing irritation and infection. Keep your skin clean by washing it with a gentle, fragrance-free soap and moisturizing it with restorative lotions that soothe and repair the skin barrier. When your skin is extremely itching, hydrocortisone cream can assist.

Sneezing, coughing, and itching eyes are common throughout allergy season. While these are the most evident indicators of allergies, they aren’t the only ones. Some people’s skin may also develop allergic symptoms. This can occur in a variety of ways.
