Protecting Your Skin During This Allergy Hayfever Season

Protecting Your Skin During This Allergy Hayfever Season

As the seasons change, many of us welcome the blossoming flowers and warmer temperatures. However, with these beautiful shifts come the not-so-welcome symptoms of hay fever.

If you've been sneezing and sniffling more than usual, you're not alone. But did you know that hay fever can also affect your skin, especially if you're prone to sensitivities?

Why Allergies Affect Your Skin

Allergens in the air, like pollen, can cause our bodies to release histamines. This natural response can lead to symptoms like itching, redness, and swelling. If your skin is already sensitive, these symptoms can feel intensified.

Tailoring Your Skincare Routine for the Season

Adapting your skincare routine for hay fever season doesn't have to be daunting. Here are some ways to keep your skin feeling calm and nourished:

1. Gentle Cleansing More Frequently

The first step is to remove allergens that may have settled on your skin using gentle cleansers like the Krave Matcha Hemp Cleanser or Rovectin Skin Essentials Conditioning CleanserThese cleansers ensure that irritants are washed away without stripping your skin of its natural oils.

2. Barrier Creams/Serums: Your Best Defence

Protecting your skin’s natural barrier is essential during these challenging months. We're looking for products that are rich ceramides, hyaluronic acids and niacinamide to give your skin the protecting it need.

Some of our favourites are the Krave Great Barrier Relief, Etude Soon Jung Barrier 2x Cream, and AESTURA Atobrrier 365 Cream, all curated to strengthen your skin, offering it the defence it needs.

3. Avoid Over-Exfoliation

While exfoliating is essential for skin renewal, overdoing it during hay fever season can make your skin more susceptible to allergens and can cause it to be more sensitive than it already is. Stick to gentle exfoliant incorporated products like  like the Round Lab Dokto Toner, this toner has exfoliating agents within the hydrating toner formula that won't be harsh on your skin. is gentle on the skin.


Surviving hay-fever season is a challenge for many, and when combined with skin sensitivities, it can feel daunting. However, with a tailored skincare routine, navigating this period becomes more manageable.

This is a great reminder that our skincare routine, like the season, should evolve depending on what our skin needs!
