Spring is almost upon us and you know what that means; warmer temperatures, flowers in bloom, and glorious sunshine. It also means pollen and lots of it. I’m a seasonal allergy sufferer, the spring is the worst time of year for me. Itchy, watery eyes, stuffy sinuses, constant sneezing. It makes you miserable. What you may not be aware of, is that all of these symptoms are caused by pollen’s damaging effect on your skin. You’re probably wondering how is this even possible. It’s possible and it’s true.


One of the ways in which your seasonal allergies affect your skin comes from rubbing and scratching, while secretions force you to repeat the cycle of trying to alleviate your symptoms again. The Dennie-Morgan fold is the most visible evidence of allergies, and we’ve all seen it. This is when a line forms under your eyes and is caused by constant rubbing. Eventually, you may begin to see dark circles under your eyes which are caused by fluid that makes the purplish vessels beneath your skin swell. For people with skin conditions such as eczema, pollen tends to cause rashes and swelling. Regardless of how you experience seasonal allergies, it is important to keep your skin clean and healthy, in addition to creating a barrier between your skin and pollen.


Though I’ve previously explained how these products protect your skin, I’d like to explain how these products work to protect you from harmful allergens. Using first the RxFoliant™ Leave-On Mask, you’ll. be cleaning your skin prepping it for the next stage. The second part is essential to protecting your skin from allergens, and that is the Soft Immersion Moisturizer. It protects your skin from drying (and other harmful elements) and blocks pollen from your skin by creating and preserving a healthy skin barrier. I mentioned above how devastating pollen can be to those with eczema, well, the Soft Immersion Moisturizer helps with psoriasis, and rosacea as well. With the help of Gleem Beauty products, you’ll be able to enjoy your spring.


Keep in mind that Gleem Beauty products can only do so much, and you may require prescription medications. If you have serious or life-threatening allergies, you should consult your dermatologist or doctor.
