If you have seasonal allergies, try the following:

  1. Avoid going out early morning/ late afternoon
  2. Wash clothes that you wore outside
  3. Take a shower before going to bed

If you find that you have a summer cold, don’t despair! Follow these tips and you will be back to enjoying your favorite summer activities in no time!

  1. Start taking a product with zinc gluconate to shorten your cold
  2. Wash your hands often, for at least 20 seconds
  3. Get lots of rest, fluids and a balanced diet
