Protect yourself from the deadly smog

Take these simple and effective steps to combat the effects of deadly smog and protect you and your children until the situation gets better.

Pollution Face Masks

It might be tempting to buy a cheap mask for around Rs 5, but most of these low quality masks including surgical masks are permeable and thus only provide protection against certain large particles and not the more dangerous pollutants in smog. Since surgical masks are not designed with carbon filters, nor do they fit tightly against the wearer’s face, they are not effective against PM2.5, PM10, viruses or bacteria.

When buying a smog mask, knowing its composition is important for you to get maximum protection. It should have a carbon filter for protection against Ozone and S02, it should fit securely and comfortably (If you buy a mask that is not meant for a child’s face, it will let in pollutants) and It should be easy to breathe in

Safety at school

Air pollution is more harmful to children as their respiratory systems are still developing. When enrolling your kids to a school, find out whether:

  • the classrooms are sealed,
  • they have indoor playgrounds,
  • they monitor levels of indoor pollution through constant measurement
  • they have sound procedures for days when smog is serious
  • they have sufficient air filteration.

Filtering air at home

Invest in a good air filter for your house. Don’t restrict it to only 1 room, ensure you have enough air purifiers in rooms that the family and kids spend the maximum amount of time in. Keep the doors and windows closed and sealed as the air filter will have to work overtime if the pollutants are leaving in.

Make Your Home Greener

Invest in a range of plants to make your air a little bit cleaner. Plants like Aloe Vera, Ivy, and the Spider Plant have been known to assist with purifying the air. However do not expect 1 plant in a tiny corner of the house to act as a purifier for the whole house. Get a variety and keep them at different places in a sufficient quantities. This will also assist in taking away the locked in blues when going out becomes too dangerous.

Make technology your best friend

There are many apps through which you can monitor smog levels, even by the hour. If you are about to go outside of your house or office, it helps to check the air quality first.

Embrace an active life

Research has shown that people who exercise have stronger respiratory systems which are able to eliminate pollutants more effectively. The safest place to exercise during smog is indoors but if you like running outdoors or want to take kids for some run around, than make sure you chose a park which more vegetation. Trees and vegetation are natural air cleansers.  Avoid jogging along busy highways or in busy industrial areas which have sparse to no vegetation.

Fight the effects of smog with healthy food

Various studies have shown that certain foods, especially fruits and vegetables that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities will strengthen your immune system and help you fend off  smog related complications.  Foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits that are rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants, as well as superfoods like SUPR Aswagandha, Brahmi, Moringa and Wheatgrass should make it into your diet regularly.

Don’t forget your medication

If you have been diagnosed with asthma, you need to ensure you carry your doctor prescribed medicines including an inhaler at all times. If your child is suffering from asthma, make your his school is aware of it and always ensure there is an extra inhaler tucked into his/her bag safely.

Stay Covered

Smog does not just effect your internals, it has a devastating effect on your skin causing premature agin, acne, drying and a host of other issues. So cover up and stay safe!
