A new study has found that pollen not only causes hay fever but can also cause eczema flare ups and rosacea flare ups, meaning Spring time can be a problematic time for sensitive skin sufferers. Although hay fever is a very common allergy in spring time, around 30 million people in the UK are estimated to suffer from hay fever symptoms in the next 20 years, a new study has found that it’s notjust the respiratory system that can be effected.
Sneezing, blocked noses and streaming eyes are all well-known hay fever symptoms, but skin flare ups, rashes and inflammation are less commonly associated with hay fever symptoms.
However new evidence suggest that pollen also causes #allergic reactions and flare ups in #skin, particularly for people with #sensitive or#inflammatory skin conditions such as #eczema, dermatitis or rosacea.The published study, reported this week in the Japan Times (Japan has one of the highest rates of hay fever in the world due to the pollution), found that pollen, in particular cedar pollen, can disrupt the skin barrier function. A weakening or disruption of the skin barrier can cause rashes and lead to flare ups and irritation as well as letting harmful skin bacteria in more easily leading to inflammation and break outs.
If the skin is already susceptible to weakened barrier function such as with eczema, dermatitis and rosacea, then pollen could be a trigger for skin flare ups.
Sasanqua began to bloom.
It makes me feel like it was autumn.
By the way, although it is how to distinguish from camellia, it falls like a petal gets scattered.
And the foliage of the leaves is clearly jagged.
I do not mind seeing the camellia nearer and touched.
Because the bees are going around in the winter, the bees are taking the pollen and honey from the flowers as hard as possible.
A big bee is hated because it is dangerous if it is stabbed, but is not she treated a little more generously?
Given that people spend more than 90 percent of their time indoors, air quality matters . Furnishings, upholstery, synthetic building materials, and cleaning products in homes and offices can emit a variety of toxic compounds, like formaldehyde. Indoor air pollution can also be caused by #pollen,#bacteria, and #molds, as outdoor air contaminants like car exhaust finds its way into buildings. All of these are made worse in small or poorly-ventilated spaces (like maybe your apartment with that window that you accidentally painted shut last year). The good news is that there’s an easy and affordable way to combat the presence of the yucky stuff we may be breathing in, and it comes right from the natural world
Adding potted #plants to a room has been shown to reduce the amount of air particulates (although plants in bloom may be contributing their own compoundsto the air) .
So, how do houseplants clean the air? Plants absorb some of the particulates from the air at the same time that they take in carbon dioxide, which is then processed into oxygen through photosynthesis. But that’s not all—microorganisms associated with the plants are present in the potting soil, and these microbes are also responsible for much of the cleaning effect
