HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balm can help brides and grooms usher away the pollen this summer with its pollen blocking attributes. Hay fever symptoms can be a complete distraction in spring and summer, with constant sneezing, runny nose and sore eyes. HayMax works as a prevention, helping stop or lessen the symptoms, and is drug-free with no drowsy side effects, letting you get on and enjoy your wedding day and honeymoon.

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen and other airborne particles. Most people who suffer from hay fever are allergic to grass pollen, whose season runs from May to August with peaks in June and July.

Common hay fever symptoms include sneezing, a runny nose, a stuffed up nose, itchy and watery or streaming eyes, nasal congestion and a general stuffed up feeling in the nose and throat. Itching around the face and mouth, including an itchy mouth, a burning sensation in the throat, headaches and wheezing can also occur.

Other symptoms include an overall achy feeling, or build-up of pressure in the face; the sinus area is often the most painful. Constant nose rubbing and blowing can cause skin irritation and sensitivity. All of this can lead to tiredness, fatigue and exhaustion. Hay fever can also affect how you sleep and cause sleep disturbance and difficulty getting to sleep. These symptoms can in turn zap your energy levels leaving you feeling low and sluggish.

Most hay fever treatments and remedies deal with the symptoms of hay fever. HayMax is different as it works on the prevention principle. It seeks to stop pollen getting into the body before it can cause a reaction, rather than attempting to treat the symptoms or the effects of the pollen once they occur. HayMax is a simple idea, is easy to use and so many people find it works and love it. That's the magic of HayMax.

Everyone can tolerate a certain amount of pollen in their body before they react – known as their 'trigger level'. When the 'trigger level' is exceeded, hay fever symptoms start. When an allergen barrier balm traps enough pollen that the trigger level is not reached, symptoms don't start. Less allergen, less reaction (and for many, none at all!). HayMax is applied topically with a finger (or cotton swab), to the rim of the nostrils and bones of the eyes. HayMax is not invasive, is incredibly easy to use and can be applied as often as necessary. Apply it first thing in the morning, then before you leave for the ceremony to help stop pollen ruining your big day. As HayMax is drug-free there are no drowsy side-effects. HayMax is ideal for brides and grooms; it comes in a small pot so fits easily into a pocket or small bag and is non greasy so can be applied under make-up.

And don't forget to take a pot on honeymoon too. Seasons differ by country and region, and there may be different types of trees and grasses to your local area that you may be allergic to.

Independent university studies show that HayMax traps all types of grass and tree pollen [1] and that HayMax traps over a third of pollen before it enters the body, in addition to dust mite allergens and pet dander [2]. In an independent survey by Allergy UK (the leading national charity providing support, advice and information for those living with allergic disease), 80% of hay fever sufferers say HayMax works [3]. And 94% of people find HayMax quick to be effective; 44% say that it works immediately and a further 35% say that it works within an hour or two [3].

HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balm has an rrp of £8.49 per pot and is available from independent chemists, pharmacists and health stores, Holland & Barrett, Ocado, selected Superdrug and Boots, on 01525 406600 and www.haymax.biz
