For those suffering from hay fever, warmer weather often signals months of sneezing, runny noses and streaming eyes. One of the most common allergies, hay fever is caused by an irritation to pollen, a yellow-coloured powder produced by trees, flowers, grasses, and weeds. Hay fever can have an effect on many aspects of day-to-day life, leaving many feeling tired and run down with itchy eyes, runny noses and tickly throats.
Any of these symptoms sound familiar? If so, our founder Georgie Cleeve is on hand to help! Read on for a few easy tricks to help soothe the pesky symptoms so many of us are suffering from.


Check the ingredients
When it comes to your skincare routine, try and look out for ingredients with anti-inflammatory qualities. Georgie recommends ingredients such as Butterbur, derived from the root of the Butterbur shrub which grows in Europe, Asia and parts of North America. Butterbur is a known anti-histamine that has long been used to soothe irritated skin.
Find it in our Get Up & Glow serum and Renaissance Mask.

Treat your eyes
Sometimes just applying some light pressure to the eye area can really help reduce irritation. Our Eye Wonder serum has a soothing rose water base, and is jam-packed with nutrients and peptides to help hydrate and strengthen the delicate eye area.
We recommend our tailored Magic Eye Massage Routine to not only de-puff and refresh the eye area but also help to relieve itchy eyes. Using ring fingers and just one pump of Eye Wonder, follow the steps below:

1) Imagine you are typing quickly on a keyboard. Use this tapping movement around the eyes, temples and on the forehead for 10 seconds

2) Place your ring finger on the first pressure point

3) Move to arch of the eyebrow, apply pressure to the second point

4) From here move in between the eye brows to the 3rd point

5) With very light pressure, circle the eye area 3 times from inner to outer eyebrow, underneath the eye and up the bridge of the nose, with your fingers meeting again in between the eyebrows .

6) On the last circle, apply pressure at point 4, pushing upwards towards the ceiling.

7) For point 5, apply the pressure inwards, towards to nose.

8) Applying a little more pressure, lift and slide towards the temples, lifting the eyebrow, gently circle under the eyes three times.
9) On the last circle of the eye socket, stop at the outer corner of the eye and apply pressure to pressure point 7

10) Now, using your index and middle finger, use static circular movements to the temples three times

11) Swap back to your ring finger applying pressure point movements to point 8.
