Tips for Sleeping in the Heatwave

Summer is officially here, along with the peak grass pollen season. With temperatures set to rise to up to 30°C this week, and pollen forecasts very high across most of the country for most of the week, airborne allergies expert and creator of HayMax, Max Wiseberg, has some simple tips to help you sleep overnight.

Max comments, “Staying cool is the key to a good night’s sleep and if you’re a hay fever sufferer like me, avoiding the pollen too.

• Try putting your pillowcase in the fridge so that it's cool! Some people swear by chilling all of their sheets, but that sounds extreme...
• Shower before bed. A cool shower will help to cool you down from a day in the sun. And it will help to remove pollen from your hair and body.
• Keep a jug of cool water next to the bed.
• Opening a window at the front and back of the house can provide a cooling breeze. Be sure not to do this until late evening though, because early evening brings high pollen counts as the atmosphere begins to cool and pollen settles back down to the ground.
• Apply an organic, drug-free allergen barrier balm, such as HayMax, to the nostrils and around the bones of the eyes before you go to bed, to block pollen before it enters the body. HayMax has been proven to trap over one third of pollen grains before they enter the body [1].”

Remember your remedies and follow the basics of pollen prevention: Pillowcase in fridge, shower, water, open windows just before bed, HayMax.

The Symptoms of Hay Fever
Common hay fever symptoms include sneezing, a runny nose, a stuffed up nose, itchy and watery or streaming eyes, nasal congestion and a general stuffed up feeling in the nose and throat.

Some people also experience itching around the face and mouth including an itchy mouth, itchy roof of mouth, and a burning sensation in the throat. Headaches and wheezing can also occur.

Hay fever symptoms may also include an overall achy feeling, or buildup of pressure in the entire face area. The sinus area is often the most painful. Constant nose rubbing and blowing can also leave sufferers with skin irritation and sensitivity. All of this can lead to tiredness, fatigue, exhaustion. Hay fever can also affect how you sleep and cause sleep disturbance and difficulty getting to sleep. These symptoms can in turn zap your energy levels leaving you feeling low and sluggish. Chronic hay fever sufferers may experience more severe or prolonged symptoms.
