Spring Into Action To Keep Allergies At Bay This Season (NAPS)—According to the National Oceanic and Atmo spheric Administration (NOAA), the 2011−2012 winter is the fourth warmest on record. The mild weather is triggering an unusually early release of pollen that causes pesky allergy symptoms. Beyond the itchy eyes, sneezing and runny nose, one overlooked side effect of allergies is dry or irritated lips. “Managing allergy symptoms is paramount to get through the season, and it starts with the skin, as it is the first line of defense,” said Dr. Charles Zugerman, associate professor of clinical dermatology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “Dry and cracked lips cause fissures in the skin, leaving them more susceptible to infection. Additionally, by relieving the lip discomfort, allergy sufferers also feel better, which in turn helps them rest and recover.” Zugerman recommends keeping a moisturizing lip balm on hand, such as Blistex Cold & Allergy Lip Soother, especially developed to provide comforting relief and protection for lips that are feeling under the weather due to allergies. A few other ways to alleviate allergy symptoms include: • Use an air purifier to remove contaminants from the air, such as dust, pollen and pet dander. • Ensure that your vacuum has a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. A vacuum without this filter may make allergies and asthma worse by disturbing and blowing the dust particles in the air.

• Bathe in cool water and use a mild soap without perfume or coloring. • Wash your laundry in hot water with a temperature of 130 degrees or greater. • Change your clothing after spending a lot of time outdoors to keep the pollen out of the house. Battling Dry Lips Severe lip dryness and chapping are caused by a number of factors during allergy season, including open-mouth

Protect your skin and don’t let allergies get you down this season. breathing as a result of blocked passageways and the dehydrating effects of medications such as antihistamines. Blistex Cold & Allergy Lip Soother has a special formula that glides on smoothly and feels soft when applied to sore lips to prevent further irritation. Special ingredients include pramoxine HCL, an advanced analgesic that alleviates sensitivity and lip soreness, pain and itchiness; dimethicone to prevent moisture loss and protect lips; glycerin, lanolin and sunflower seed oil to help remoisturize parched lips; and vitamins C and E, chamomile, green tea, honey and elderberry to comfort irritated lips.

Tips For Decorating With Stronger Colors (NAPS)—When it comes to decorating, color experts are predicting that homeowners will be seeking out stronger colors in their search for intensity. Seeking Sensation The bold choice to turn to vibrant, optimistic colors is two-fold: a search for euphoria for some and, for others, a sense of oneself. According to PPG Pittsburgh Paints color expert Dee Schlotter, for many people, intensity is a survival strategy in times of crisis. “For some, it means seeking out extremes of sensation, rebelling against the bland existence that comes with cynicism and disenchantment. For others, it means ‘unplugging’ in order to reconnect with a life they feel is fleeting,” added Schlotter. Sensation seekers will go for colors that stir the senses and set them in motion, amping up the chromatic density of their lives. Expect their spaces to be full of strong contrasts— heavy and weightless, shadow and light, hot and cold. On the other hand, some individuals will use strong color as a way to turn inward and unplug. Expect them to opt for

quiet, understated palettes accented by deep, rich colors in order to create the space they need to take time to relax. If you are thinking of taking the leap to strong, deep color, here are some tips: • If you appreciate deep, rich colors outside your home—whether in the clothes you wear or when you see these colors in restaurants or other people’s homes—then you will probably also like them in your own home. • Consider an accent wall. This is a great way to get a smaller taste of strong color while still adding interest to the room. • Test first. Use a large test sheet and a “time test”— view your color in all light: morning, noon and night. Live with it for a few days to make sure you love it. • Don’t let timidity hold you back. Recognize that there’s only one life to live and there’s no time to waste. If not now, then when?

Motorized Shades: Energy-Saving, Practical Decor (NAPS)—Your shades can be more than a decorative element, if they’re motorized. Motorized shades are a cool way to add technology to your home and can make life easier, save energy— and more. Here are features and benefits:

Control Hard-To-Reach Windows Do you have high living room windows or windows behind a sunken tub in your master bath? What about windows behind your kitchen sink? Shades in hard-to-reach areas can be difficult to open and close. With motorized shades, you can easily adjust shades with one button press.

Add Convenience Manually lowering shades takes time. With motorized shades, you can lower them all at once without even getting up from your chair. Plus, you may be more apt to raise and lower these shades than manual ones.

Eliminate Cords Unlike many manual shades, motorized shades are cordless, so kids and pets can’t get tangled in the cords.

Save Energy Adjusting shades with the seasons can help keep your heating and cooling expenses from going through the roof. Motorized shades make it easy to block the sun’s rays in summer to help keep a room cool or let them in to warm a room in winter.

Motorized honeycomb shades feature pockets that trap air, providing superior insulation. The fabrics may provide better insulation than your windows.

Protect Interiors Over time, the sun’s rays can damage fabrics, artwork and flooring. Your being able to press a button to lower shades and block those harsh rays will help extend the life of your home’s interior.

Affordable Luxury Now you can have the benefits of motorized honeycomb shades without pulling wires for electricity—with Serena remote controlled shades by Lutron. Because you control them via a remote, they’re great for hard-to-reach windows. Available from www.LutronSerenaShades.com, these shades are battery powered, so you can easily install them yourself in about 10 minutes. They use store-bought batteries, feature innovative technology that extends battery life up to three years, and start at just $299. The shades come in sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics, so you can choose the amount of sunlight in the room. The shades are available in four different pleat options, five textures and a wide variety of colors.

Learn More To learn more about adding convenience and energy savings with motorized shades, visit www.LutronSerenaShades.com or call (888) 445-8063.
