How to Prevent Allergy Flare-Ups: SmartSilk Pillows Review
This post about how to prevent allergy flare-ups is sponsored by SmartSilk. We received SmartSilk pillows for this review.
Allergies affect many people around the world. The most common allergens are certain foods, dust, pollen, pet dander, grasses, and weeds. While some people are afflicted with seasonal allergies, some of us suffer from common allergy flare-ups year round.
The most important thing for you to do to prevent allergy flare-ups is to see your doctor to determine the cause of your symptoms. Once they have figured out the cause, try to avoid that as much as possible. Although you cannot avoid all causes, if you happen to have food allergies, avoid that particular product or any food that is made with that particular ingredient.
How to Prevent Allergy Flare-Ups
- If you happen to be allergic to dust, avoid having carpeting in your home. If this is not possible, vacuum your home often. Dust particles enter your home through an open window and settle on the carpets. This can make those who are allergic to dust vulnerable.
- If you happen to be allergic to pollen, wash your hair at night to remove any traces of pollen dust that may collect in your hair during the day. It is also important that you blow your nose often. Pollen dust can be trapped in your nostrils and cause your allergy symptoms to flare up.
- You can lessen the chance of allergy flare-ups by taking antihistamines when you feel the onset of an allergy attack. This will help to alleviate some of the discomfort. Avoid stress as much as possible as stress can cause hay fever allergies to surface.
- SmartSilk Pillows are a great alternative to your everyday pillows. Made from a blend of all natural and luxurious material, SmartSilk Pillows are naturally allergen retardant. Their SmartSilk™ Shield Advantage acts as a barrier for common allergens such as dirt, dander and dust mites. As an added bonus, the SmartSilk Pillows have been certified asthma & allergy friendly™ which leads to a better nights sleep.
Who would have thought that a pillow could have so many technical and cool features? But wait… there’s more (that’s my infomercial voice :) ) The Smart Temperature Advantage built into the SmartSilk pillows keeps the pillow constantly adjusting to your body temperature. Hot flashes anyone?! I can attest to this feature.
As a pillow flipper I’m constantly flipping the pillow to have the cool side closest to me. I haven’t had to flip the SmartSilk pillow at all. What’s even better is it stays fluffy and full so I don’t need to pile a ton of pillows up to sleep. I can sleep with just the 1 SmartSilk pillow and be perfectly fine (as long as I have another to cuddle with.)
If you’re trying to prevent allergy flare-ups then I can definitely suggest checking out SmartSilk. Visit their website to see their full line of allergy-retardant products. Be sure to also follow them on Twitter and Facebook. They also just launched a luxury pet bedding and apparel line called Paws n’Silk.
