Skincare Must Haves for Combating Seasonal Allergies

As the sun comes out and flowers start to bloom for the first time each spring, pesky seasonal allergies follow close behind. From puffy eyes to irritated skin, allergies affect our bodies in many ways and are always inconvenient (at the very least). If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you’re not alone! Roughly 60 million Americans report symptoms from airborne pollen each year. Thankfully, there are many skincare products that combat and relieve the most common issues caused by allergies.

Urban You For Me carries allergy-relieving products for all skin types and needs! All products mentioned are currently 20% off on our website. Members save an extra 20%! Here are some of our favorite skincare items that not only help with allergies, but leave skin feeling healthy and nourished.

SkinMedica Instant Bright Eye Cream


One of the most common symptoms of seasonal allergies are puffy, red under eyes. Not only is this uncomfortable and at times painful, but it is also one of the few symptoms that can be visible to others. 

Thanks to SkinMedica’s Instant Bright Eye Cream, you can say goodbye to the feel and look of swollen under eyes. This hyaluronic acid daily eye cream reduces hyperpigmentation and swelling caused by pollen particles. It visibly improves puffiness while keeping your under eyes plump and radiant. Not only does the Instant Bright Eye Cream combat ongoing irritation, but it also works to strengthen and support your skin’s barrier to prevent flare ups. Lightly massage a thin layer of product into the skin adjacent to the eyelids and under eyes twice daily.


Little Barn Apothecary Coconut + Cactus Hydrating Bath Milk

Allergies don’t just affect our faces. The skin barrier covers our entire body, and any delicate skin can be exposed to allergens. This hydrating bath milk is formulated with gentle, organic ingredients to treat your skin after a long day. Aloe vera reduces inflammation and surface level irritation, while Kaolinite pink clays draws out impurities and soothes dry, itchy skin. This product is suitable for all skin types. To use, add about a quarter of the jar into a warm bath and soak for 30-40 minutes.

SkinMedica Sensitive Skin Cleanser

Allergens are spread through small pollen particles in the air that stick to our skin and enter our airways. One of the best ways to combat surface level skin irritation is by maintaining a clean, healthy skin barrier. The delicate skin on our faces can be easily damaged if over-cleansed with abrasive products, which in turn makes us more susceptible to allergies. 

SkinMedica’s Sensitive Skin Cleanser is specifically designed for those with inflamed or easily-irritated skin. Full of vitamins and botanical extracts, this cleanser removes environmental grime while providing more hydration than its competitors. Use in the evening to gently remove the day’s buildup of dirt and allergens before bed. Massage into the skin for one minute and rinse with lukewarm water to avoid heat damage. 

Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45


Last but certainly not least, SPF. Sunscreens don’t protect against pollen, but they’re essential in maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Sunburns aren’t a traditional allergic


reaction by any means. However, our skin reacts to sun exposure in the same way that our eyes or sinuses do to pollen. SPF is a skincare essential year round, but they’re extra important during the summer months. This Active Broad Spectrum SPF protects your skin while you sweat, swim, or exercise. It’s never too late to be proactive against UVA/UVB exposure.
