Having an allergic reaction? It might be mites!
It’s the time of year when people with allergies are often focused on the outside world and the pollen that can trigger hayfever. But there’s something that can cause allergic reactions a little closer to home.
They share your house, but chances are you ’mite’ well not want them there! If dust mites are causing problems, it’s time to show them the door.
Luckily, it’s possible to cut down on the number of dust mites that live in a home through making some simple changes.
These creatures are no fun, not least because they munch on the bits of dead skin that us humans shed - not a pleasant thought! - and can lead to allergic reactions.
When dust causes you issues, try donning a mask while vacuuming.
If mites are causing you trouble, a vacuum cleaner could help come to the rescue. If you want to boost the amount of dust you get rid of by vacuuming, it could be worth investing in a vacuum that has a (very scientific sounding!) high efficiency particulate air filter on it.
The sorts of people who like to invest in eco friendly products may want to conserve electricity and save the vacuum cleaner to bring out only for cleaning things like carpet.
When it comes to giving other things a dust, a cloth moistened with a little water can be a good way to go. It’s best to check whatever the thing you are dusting is suitable to wipe in this way, though.
Rather than curtains, it may be wise to invest in some roller blinds, meanwhile. And if you currently have carpet, you could find that swapping this with wood underfoot could make a difference, too.
How do you know you’re allergic?
It could be that you have never heard of dust mites before, and so could be experiencing an allergic reaction to them without being aware of this.
It’s good to be armed with details about some of the signs of a reaction, so that you are ready to do something about it if you find you are in the position of suffering one.
Possible signs of an allergy to dust mites can include finding yourself sneezing, having itchy eyes and having a runny nose.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
