Lets be honest… no one can pull of the Rudolf look, not even supermodels. Sniffling, runny red noses and bloodshot eyes are not a good look on anybody!
Anyone who suffers from hay fever can more than likely attest to the daily struggle that is the joy of spring and all of the pollen that comes with it.
Grass pollen is the main cause of hay fever in the UK, with an estimated 95% of all sufferers allergic to the stuff. The season for grass pollen runs from May to July each year – almost exactly coinciding with the best weather for golfers. To help you conquer the dreaded allergy season, we suggest three different methods designed to help.
HayNow Allergy Band (pictured above)
For hay fever and allergy sufferers Spring and Summer can be dreaded seasons with allergies causing great discomfort for many. The all new Hay Now allergy band provides a natural form of relief for hay fever and most common allergies using the ancient Chinese principles of acupressure. The band provides a drug free, non drowsy alternative or addition to traditional forms of medication. The aim of the Hay Now Allergy Band is to assist with the reduction of the symptoms of hay fever and allergic rhinitis.
The LI-11 pressure point , found on the inner of the elbow is believed to draw negative energy away from the head when stimulated which in return reducing the symptoms of hay fever and similar allergies.
Brand new to the market and now widely available the Hay Now Allergy Band is available in a variety of colours which can be worn in any environment. We offer a range suitable sized for children. All bands work in the exact same way, the only difference is the choice in colour and design to tie in with your personal taste each time you wear it.

HayMax is an organic balm, based on beeswax and sunflower oil, which is applied around the rim of the nostrils and the bones of the eyes to trap pollen before it causes havoc in the body. People prone to hay fever can tolerate a certain amount of pollen without reaction. But once this is exceeded – called the trigger (or sensitivity) level – the allergic reaction occurs. HayMax works by reducing the amount of pollen entering the body, so the sufferer can stay symptom free for longer, or even all day.
HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balms retail at £6.99 per pot and are available from Holland & Barrett, selected Morrisons, Waitrose and Boots, independent health stores, chemists and pharmacies, on 01525 406600 and on-line at www.haymax.biz.
