Spring is almost here, and what a great time to start adding in more cooling, refreshing foods, especially if you’ve been cooped up all winter. While getting back outdoors sounds appealing, spring is the season when pollen and other irritants fill the air, triggering allergies for many people. To ward of sniffles and sneezes, try drinking a glass of green juice daily, or even a few times a week. Packed with nutrients, it’s an easy (and delicious!) was to flood your immune system with supportive nutrients so you’re armed when allergens start to fly.
Q: I recently tried a new anti-aging serum and ended up with red, blotchy patches on my cheeks. Does this mean I’m allergic to it?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
If you’ve never experienced a reaction to a skincare product, consider yourself lucky. It happens to many of us. Irritated skin can be caused by a number of things, including medications, topical irritants, infections or immune system disorders. When an allergen is responsible for triggering an immune system response, you may suffer from something as minimal as a little itch or as severe as a full-blown allergic reaction. Yikes!
Q. I’m a new mom and I am not getting ANY sleep. I have these awful dark circles under my eyes that I never had before. Is there a way I can look less exhausted?
Dr. Linda Miles L. Ac., D.O.M. responds:
One of the most common questions I get asked is, “how do I get rid of dark under-eye circles?”
First and foremost, we need to understand why those dark circles appear. Basically, they are calling out an internal imbalance that needs to be corrected. You cannot get rid of dark under-eye circles completely until you identify this imbalance and correct it.
Uh oh, sounds like allergy seasons is upon us. This year, keep the sniffling and sneezing at bay by following these easy tips to avoid both outdoor and indoor triggers.
