Allergy Season Skincare: Tips for Calming Irritated Skin

Welcome, dreaded allergy season! For many, this time of year brings not only sneezing fits and itchy eyes but also irritated and inflamed skin. If this sounds like you, here is a list of tips and tricks to help you calm and care for your sensitive skin during allergy season.

Understanding Allergy Season and Your Skin

Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, such as pollen, triggering inflammation and irritation. This can manifest not only internally but also externally on your skin. Common skin reactions during allergy season include redness, itchiness, dryness, and even eczema flare-ups. Here are some treatment and prevention tips to maintain your radiant complexion:

  • Tip 1: Gentle Cleansing
  • During allergy season, your skin is already in a heightened state of sensitivity. Opt for gentle cleansers that won't further exacerbate irritation. Cleansing your skin morning and night will help remove pollen and other allergens, preventing them from lingering and causing further irritation. Our Gentle Foamy Cleanser comes in a luxurious foam that can repair your skin’s barrier in as little as 24 hours! This would be our top suggestion for anyone with sensitive, compromised skin or struggling with allergies.

  • Tip 2: Hydration is Key
  • Hydrated skin is happy skin, especially during allergy season. Choose a lightweight, non-greasy, non-comedogenic, moisturizer to replenish and lock in moisture without weighing down your skin. Our Daily Hydration Moisturizer is perfect for this and it's safe for all skin types, even allergy flared skin! Apply moisturizer liberally throughout the day, especially after cleansing or spending time outdoors, to keep your skin hydrated and protected.

    While allergy season may pose challenges for your skin, implementing a gentle and soothing skincare routine can help alleviate discomfort and restore balance. Remember to listen to your skin's needs and adjust your routine accordingly, and don't hesitate to consult with a dermatologist if you're experiencing persistent or severe symptoms. With the right care and attention, you can breeze through allergy season with calm and radiant skin.
