Protecting yourself against pollen this spring

Not all of us are lucky when it comes to being genetically disposed to tackling allergies, but that doesn't mean we're entirely defenseless. The University of Maryland Medical Center has a few suggestions to help allergy-sufferers avoid pollen and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.

The Center suggests that you "stay away from hay and barns, and avoid activities such as raking leaves and mowing the grass," according to HealthDay News. Additionally, you should "wear sunglasses to help keep pollen out of the eyes [and] when you come back indoors, shower and wash your hair to remove pollen. Close doors and windows during pollen seasons."

Of course, there are only so many things we can do in the great outdoors, but your indoor space affords you a little more control over the quality of the air that you breathe.

Installing a high-quality air purifying system is an excellent way to take matters into your own hands.
