Cold weather can make taking care of your ears tough. From pressure to sinus congestion, keeping your ears in tip-top shape isn’t always the easiest. However, we’ve got you covered with three foolproof tips that will make braving the cold weather a little more bearable.
Because your ears are mostly made of cartilage with little by way of insulation, they get colder more quickly than other parts of your body. Covering your ears with a hat, earmuffs or scarf starting at 59˚F will help prevent cold weather afflictions, including hearing loss, infections, hardened ear wax, and more.
Keep Out Infections
The dramatic swings in temperatures, from the cold outdoors to your toasty home, can sometimes result in an increase in moisture in and around the ear. This, in turn, can create an inviting environment for bacteria. This excessive moisture can be a contributing factor to some kinds of ear infections, so it’s important to make sure your ears stay dry.
Say Snow To Excess Ear Wax
Blustery days and chilly temps can also cause your ears to create more wax. If you’re concerned about hardened or excess ear wax putting a damper on your day, we recommend using the Wax-Rx Ear Wash System to safely and gently flush out unwanted wax.
