Does hay fever make you want to hide inside during the warmer months? Optrex can help you get back out enjoying your garden at its best

Written by Hayley Shedden

During the spring and summer, it’s natural to want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. The longer days, extra sunshine and balmier temperatures are all incredibly uplifting, and as a gardener, you finally get to see your outdoor space burst to life with wonderful blooms and plentiful produce. For the one in five people who get hay fever, however, it can be a challenging time – fortunately, Optrex ActiMist Double Action spray can help.

Optrex ActiMist Double Action helps give fast and long-lasting relief from itchy and watery eyes caused by pollen and dust, plus it can be used in conjunction with hay fever tablets, so you’ll be ready to enjoy your spring and summer to the full.

Quick and easy

Pollen can cause disruption to the lipid layer of the tear film of the eye, resulting in itching and watering. By simply spraying Optrex ActiMist Double Action onto your closed eyes, the lipid layer will be repaired as you blink. It’s an easy on-the-go solution, and is especially ideal for people who struggle with putting drops in their eyes. What’s more, the spray won’t smudge make up and can be used with contact lenses. Optrex ActiMist Double Action will help soothe your eyes and make them feel fresher, so what are you waiting for? Give it a try and open your eyes up to all the joys of spring and summer. Just be sure to always read the label before use.

What is hay fever?

Seasonal allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, affects millions of people every year. Symptoms can include a runny or blocked nose, sneezing, and red, itchy and watery eyes, caused by the immune system’s overreaction to airborne dust and pollens that are prevalent in the summer months.

How can I manage my symptoms?

Along with using Optrex ActiMist Double Action spray and anti-histamine tablets, there are a few extra steps you can take to help manage your symptoms:

  • Protect your eyes with sunglasses when outdoors.
  • On days with a high pollen count, don’t leave doors and windows open in your home.
  • If driving, avoid opening the window.
  • At the end of the day, take a shower to wash off any irritants and change into fresh clothes.
