Ugh! Allergies. We all have them and we all hate them. Well, you are in luck! I am here to give you a few easy tips on how you can combat your intrusive allergies this Spring. 

If you know you have severe allergies, staying inside on windy and dry days might be your best bet at eliminating many of your symptoms. 

There are also many over-the-counter medications that have proven highly effective in combating allergies. Many decongestants have proven to be quite effective such as Allegra and Zyrtec. These will help to ease your symptoms after onset. 

Another home remedy that can help you combat your allergies is rinsing your sinuses, cleansing them of any unwanted pollutants. This remedy is easy and quick. All you have to do is purchase a nasal rinse from your local drug store. This has proven to eliminate many of the unwanted, nasty symptoms of seasonal allergies. 

Eating well is also a great way to not only stay healthy but to help prevent allergies as a whole. Make sure you are getting plenty of vitamin C in your diet from foods such as oranges. This will help you stay strong and healthy through the allergy season. These are all easy and cheap ways to stay allergy free this Spring.
