Embrace Your Natural Belleza Latina with ZYRTEC.

You may remember me writing about ALLERGYFACE in the beginning of summer and with summer nearly over, I can’t say that all symptoms have decipitated just yet.

In fact, this very morning, I put on my favorite hat, put some shades on and walked out the front door to run my errands. My nose was red and stuffy and my eyes were watery and I think I sneezed 20 times already.

Did you know that according to a recent survey by the makers of ZYRTEC®, nearly half of women suffering from ALLERGY FACE™ missed out on something like a party or a date because of their allergy-related beauty challenges?

How to Combat a Puffy Face:

Drink plenty of water each day to help keep your skin hydrated.

How to Combat a Puffy Face: Also, to reduce the appearance of a puffy face, rub an ice cube over your face before applying your makeup.

How to Reduce the Appearance of Watery Eyes: Apply navy blue or cobalt mascara to help the whites of your eyes appear brighter.

Less is more! Don’t overdo it with too much makeup.


Ditch That ALLERGYFACE Disguise!

Like aforementioned, I grab a hat and shades when I am feeling really down and out but, normally I will reach for eyeliner and mascara and hope for the best. Thanks to Carmen, a fellow latina, I’ve discovered there’s much more I can do to feel confident and really ditch my disguises!

Eyes: Use an eyelash curler before applying mascara to help “wake up” your ALLERGY FACE™. Using a curler will make your eyes look wide open, so you look fresh and awake.

Nose: If your nose is irritated and dry, avoid putting on foundation, which can look caked on. Instead apply a rich moisturizer and let it dry.

Face: To help reduce the appearance of ALLERGY FACE™, place a cold, damp cloth on your face for 10 minutes.

Break Out!

And free yourself from allergies and how they affect you. Myself, I love to place cucumbers on my eyes and just relax and forget my ALLERGYFACE and embrace my natural belleza latina. So, follow Carmen’s tips, take time for you and enjoy the warm weather!

    I am big on eye drops and sunglasses. It's the truth those puffy eyes are not pretty. Plus I notice sometimes the whole face puffs up with allergies. Not so nice for putting makeup on top of.
