When pollen season is coming, there are a few things you can do to superpower the superbloom.

#1. Close the windows

When you open the windows, you are letting all that pollen into your home. This will cause you allergies to flare.

#2. Shower at night

Showers at night are a good way to wash all of the pollen off. In addition, you change out of clothes that have pollen on them.

#3. Leave shoes at the doorway

This helps prevent the pollen from being tracked into your home.

#4. Keep pets outside the bedroom

This is another way to prevent the great outdoors from making it onto your bedding.

#5. Use a medicated nasal spray

The best preventative medicine for pollen allergies is a nasal spray. If you can start a nasal spray a few weeks ahead of the pollen season, this can often prevent many symptoms from coming on.
