Spring and summer come with the promise of longer days and more time outdoors. However, for millions of people it also comes with the promise of allergies. Runny nose, sneezing and congestion are common symptoms but seasonal allergies can also wreak havoc on your skin. While blooming flowers mean that winter is finally over, they can also cause puffy eyes, rashes, and flaky skin due to pollen, which becomes airborne in the spring and summer. Pollen can cause the body to react by releasing histamine, a neurotransmitter that dilates blood vessels, which is a fancy way of saying that it can cause redness and itching of the skin. These types of seasonal allergy symptoms are not only uncomfortable but can also affect your appearance. People who suffer from seasonal allergies tend to rub their eyes and nose, causing redness and dark circles around the eyes. This spring and summer don’t let seasonal allergies affect your skin. Advanced Dermatology has five easy tips on what you can do to help reduce seasonal skin allergies.
