Your sinuses may not be something you think about on a daily basis, but these air-filled chambers play an important role in your general health. Proper sinus care can help avoid pain, congestion, and infections; enabling you to breathe freely. Whether you want to reduce occasional discomfort or preserve your existing sinus health, here are some simple and effective techniques to care for your sinuses.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is essential for keeping your sinuses healthy. Drinking enough of water throughout the day keeps mucus thin and moving, reducing clogs and congestion. Herbal teas and clear broths can also help with hydration while calming sore sinuses. Slow juicing is also an excellent method to hydrate while enjoying various flavours that naturally originate from fruits and vegetables. To remain hydrated, eat fruits and vegetables like watermelon, melon, cucumber, or even celery. 

Steam Therapy 

Inhaling steam can help open up your nasal passages, reduce congestion, and consequently reduce stress. Bring some water to a boil and pour it into a bowl. Lean over the bowl with a towel draped over your head to catch the steam. Deeply inhale for a few minutes. Do note that adding essential oils such as chamomile or peppermint  to this water can boost the advantages of steam treatment.

Healthy Diet

A healthy diet full of fruits, veggies, and whole grains benefits your immune system and general health, including your sinuses. Certain meals, such as those high in vitamin C and antioxidants, can aid in the reduction of inflammation and promotes clean sinuses. Spicy meals can also help to ease congestion momentarily by opening up your airways.

Regular Exercise 

Engaging in regular physical activity promotes healthy blood circulation and can help reduce sinus congestion. Activities like yoga and moderate aerobic exercise can improve lung and sinus function.

Stay Hygienic

Regular hand-washing and proper hygiene can avoid the transmission of bacteria that can cause sinus infections. Unwashed hands should not be touching your face, especially your nose and eyes.
