The annual threat to the health of Singaporeans has returned once again: The Haze. So we thought we'd create this article to help our Nordic Glow family stay healthy during this period!
TIP NO. 1: KEEP THE HAZE OUT
Before you step out of the house, make sure all the doors, windows and ventilation points are closed. It's better to return back home and breathe still air than inhaling millions of haze particles. Until the purity level goes up to moderate, make sure to practice this tip. Check the news update constantly to keep a track of environmental conditions outside, so you know when not to open the doors at all.
TIP NO. 2: USE INDOOR AIR PURIFIERS
As soon as you get back to the home, do not forget to turn on the purifier to filter the indoor air. The soft haze particles can seep into your home even if the doors and windows are closed. If you don’t have an indoor purifier, try boiling water in a deep dish and let the room get filled with its steam. It will clear the air and help you breathe easily.
TIP NO. 3: DRINK TWO LITERS OF WATER A DAY
The key to fight off the haze is to keep your body hydrated. The toxins found in the haze are absorbed by your lungs and skin. This forces your kidneys to work harder. So it is always advised to drink water so your kidneys can excrete the toxins in a smooth manner. Keeping your body hydrated will also help other body organs to functions smoothly, without taking any stress.
TIP NO. 4: KEEP ALCOHOL AND CAFFEINE AWAY
Since alcohol and caffeinated drinks dehydrate the system, it is always better to stay away from them as much as possible during haze period. Drinking too much alcohol or caffeinated drinks can make your kidney more stressed, which can trigger other health complications. Even if it is really hard to go coffee-less, make yourself strong for sake of well-functioning kidneys!
TIP NO. 5: WASH YOUR FACE AND HAND REGULARLY
Wash your hands, feet and face as soon as you get indoor. Any body part that was not covered should be washed immediately to prevent toxins settling on your skin. Do not be reluctant or feel shy to wash in public places. Once you get home, shower immediately to wide off all the toxin residues.
For the people with breathing and skin problems, always carry your medical remedies during haze period. If you feel any trouble, immediately see your doctor. Stay healthy with these tips and share them with your fellow Singaporeans. These tips will help you protect yourself, as well as loved ones from potential health issues.
