9 Ways to Beat Allergy Season Like a Boss

Switch up your skincare routine.

Since skin may be more sensitive and dehydrated during allergy season, now’s a smart time to switch over to a milder cleanser and a soothing cream to diffuse redness around your nose.” Ren EverCalm Cleansing Milk followed by Biologique Recherche Crème Masque Vernix are gentle, crazy-moisturizing options that are perfect for irritated skin,” says aesthetician Joanna Czech.

Pamper your eyes.

Between scratching, rubbing, and puffiness, eyes take the biggest beating during allergy season. “First, slather on Yon-Ka Phyto-Contour eye cream, which contains rosemary to help drain fluids from the tissue. Then grab La Mer’s The Illuminating Eye Gel from the fridge—the cooling sensation is amazing—and reapply it during the day using lymphatic drainage movements to help minimize the appearance of redness and puffiness. Just use your thumb and index fingers and start at the base of your brows to squeeze and release pressure to the ends. Use the same technique under the eyes, between the brows, and under the cheekbones, pressing longer once you get to the sides of your nose,” says Czech.

End your day the way it started.

“Shower before bedtime to rinse off the dust and pollen from your hair and body,” recommends Czech. “Eucalyptus, lavender, and mint shower gels are great for opening up the sinuses. Malin + Goetz has amazing, relaxing options. Their peppermint shampoo and cilantro conditioner smell wonderful, and both work as decongestants at the same time.
