    Keep breathing to a bare minimum. Pollen makes it's way down to the Phoenix area too, and 3 or 4 days over the past two weeks we have had winds in excess of 50mph from Tucson up to Flagstaff. Pretty much state wide. That doesn't help one bit. I saw someone at a bus stop with a breathing mask on, so that has to help. But I do the Allegra. For me it works wonders and darned near instantaneously. I don't worry too much about that kind of medicine because that's all I really take. I'm a vitamin guy.

    Everyday we are faced with challenges and we hope for better days ahead. How we approach life will determine how we proceed for a better future. Everyday we are on this earth it will remain a mystery, it is imperative that we identify with our faith and the wisdom we have to conquer the world. We only have one life to live and we must live it to our most greatest strength. Never give up, fight for life.

    And so is the pollen. Everything here is covered in a greenish yellow dust that has everyone sneezing and coughing. My go to remedy for pollen is a tablespoon of local honey every morning. It certainly does help. During heavy pollen days I sometimes have to resort to an over the counter allergy pill. How do you combat this problem in your area?

    @tonijon When I read the title of this topic, my first thought was, "And so is the pollen." Eating a spoonful of local honey has a lot of great benefits, including helping out with pollen allergies. It's definitely helped me in the past. I haven't been able to get my hands on any so far this year. I need to hit up the farmer's market. My go-to for now is Allegra. I love that it doesn't make me feel drowsy.

    I just recently learned that Sci-fi was always intended to be based in actual science the same way Historical Fiction is based in history. That is why so many things that happen in Sci-Fi seem to come true before too long and even older Sci-Fi novels are often still incredibly relevant. Maybe this is something that is obvious to others, but it went over my head for the first 25 years of my life. I had always just assumed that Sci-Fi was more like fantasy, a blanket term used for common elements in those stories. As in, Fantasy brings to mind Fae, dragons, castles and epic quests etc. Sci-Fi makes you think of aliens, space, technology, and so on.

    @G R I envy men who can do away with such simple steps! Many of my male friends also have acne problems, but they tend to ignore the acne. @mawhitaker If I read your post last year, I would look at you like an alien. Now, though, everything is familiar. I'm also using snail mucus products because they help to reduce inflammation. That's a lot of masks every week, though. I only do it once a week because I'm not exactly sure where to start with them. What kind of masks do you use?

    G R, that sounds almost exactly the same as my husband's routine. I don't know how you guys do it. Migi, my routine is closer to yours. I've gotten really serious about it this year because I realized that I'm turning 30 in December and, I'll be honest, I haven't been super kind to my body/skin over the years. I use a hydrating cleanser, toner, retinol, snail mucus (sounds gross, but it's amazing), rosehip oil as a moisturizer, and sunscreen. When I've got some bad acne going on, I'll ditch the retinol for some extra-strength Stridex pads. On days I wear makeup, I'll throw in a micellar water cleanser, too. Additionally, I do 3-5 masks each week depending on how much time I have. It's all extensive and probably more than I need, but it's already been helping my skin a lot. I think it's important, not just because I'm vain, but I mean it's the largest organ we have; we should take care of it.
