As the old saying goes, April showers bring... Sinus problems?
If you're suffering from a clogged nose with all the springtime in the air, here are a few at-home tips to remedy it.
Wash out your sinuses
But don't use plain water, it has to be a saline solution of some type. Massage your sinuses while breathing in steam. This can really help break up mucus and open up your nasal pathways.

Smoking literally burns the inside of your nose, and destroys the tiny hairs inside responsible for moving mucus up your nasal passage and down your throat.
Check for dust in easily forgettable places, like on curtains and under rugs. And bleach away any mould that could be lingering.

It will also help to pay attention to what you eat. Certain foods can clog you up, like cheese and mushrooms.
So look for a pattern and break it up. If you're suffering with symptoms like headaches, a complete nose clog or facial pain it could be bacterial - just do everyone a favour and go to see your doctor.
