Allergy Season

Picture of Woman and Allergy Season

As winter comes to an end, giving way to blossoming trees and awakening nature, we also see the arrival of allergy season. This period is characterized by a significant increase in pollen production from trees, grasses and weeds. As these tiny particles disperse in the air, they often trigger allergic reactions in many individuals. Symptoms can range from mild nuisances like sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes, to more severe complications including skin inflammations and breathing difficulties. For many, allergy season is an annual struggle, a time of year when enjoying the beautiful outdoors comes with uncomfortable sensations.

Skin and Eye Irritations from Allergies

Skin and eye irritations from allergies are a common feeling in the beginning of spring. The allergens in the air trigger the immune system to react, leading to an inflammatory response.

In the eyes, this can lead to redness, itching, watering or conjunctivitis.

As for the skin, allergies can prompt conditions such as eczema or hives, resulting in red, itchy and flaky patches on the skin.

These symptoms, mild to severe, can cause discomfort and affect the quality of life of the concerned individuals during allergy season.

Appropriate care and treatment are essential in managing these conditions and ensuring comfort during this transitional season.

Natural Allergy Treatment

In our mission to find a natural allergy treatment, our primary objective is to provide relief for individuals suffering from seasonal allergies. We have carefully formulated a range of products containing a rich assortment of plants and ingredients known for their potent calming properties. Harnessing the powers of nature, our products are designed to alleviate allergy symptoms, providing you with the relief needed throughout this uncomfortable season.

Skincare for Allergies

The skincare products we recommend for allergies are enriched with calming plant extracts, that help to soothe the skin irritations commonly triggered by seasonal allergies.

Our Antioxidant Essence Velvet Hydration is composed of plants that are very efficient to instantly calm swollen and irritated eyelids.

We recommend applying the Lumière Éternelle serum around the eye and even on the eyelid. It contains specific plants for the eye, such as eyebright, which is very soothing.

Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) is a flowering herb that has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, particularly for eye-related ailments such as conjunctivitis and eye fatigue. Recently, it has gained popularity in skincare due to its potential benefits.

Benefits of Eyebright in Skincare

Here are some of the skincare benefits associated with eyebright:

Eyebright: a natural anti-inflammatory

Eyebright has been known to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce redness, swelling, and irritation on the skin. This makes it a suitable ingredient for products targeting sensitive or inflammation-prone skin.

Antioxidant power of Eyebright

The herb is rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and phenolic acids, which protect the skin against damage by free radicals. This can help prevent premature skin aging and maintain skin health.

Eyebright’s astringent properties

Eyebright has astringent properties which can help tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. This can result in a smoother and more youthful complexion.

Soothing effect of eyebright on skin

Traditionally used to soothe eye ailments, eyebright can also offer soothing benefits to irritated or inflamed skin. It is often included in products designed for sensitive skin types.

Tannin content in eyebright

Eyebright contains tannins that have potential antimicrobial and antiviral properties. This could make it helpful in addressing certain skin conditions and improving overall skin health.

However, while the potential benefits of eyebright are promising, it’s important to note that more research is needed to fully understand its effects, particularly in skincare applications. As with any skincare ingredient, it’s also crucial to patch test any product containing eyebright to ensure it doesn’t cause an adverse reaction. If you have any concerns, it’s always best to consult with a dermatologist or skincare professional.

Very often, people suffering from pollen allergies also experience eczema, which manifests as dry and peeling skin on the face. For such cases, we recommend the application of Velvet Hydration combined with the hydrating balm Smooth Addiction during the day.

For the night routine, we suggest applying Velvet Hydration along with our elixir Nectar Immortel blended with the balancing face oil Midnight Rejuvenation.

These products are our curative skincare line designed to alleviate the symptoms of allergies of your skin and your eyes.

As the allergy season is arriving, it is important to remember that natural treatments to soothe allergies exist. With our carefully formulated skincare products enriched with calming plant extracts, we offer a helping hand to combat the irritations triggered by seasonal allergies.
