When I was growing up in New York, my favorite season was Spring. The fresh breeze, the warm but not overly hot weather, it was perfect. When we moved down South, my favorite season switched to Winter. It wasn't as cold as up North & what used to be my favorite season, didn't exist down South. lol. It still doesn't. There's pretty much Summer & Winter. It's SO hot down here in the Spring & on top of that, there aren't any fresh breezes and the earth is covered in pollen every morning. For many people, pollen is just annoying – getting over all the cars and our shoes but for those with allergies, like most of my family, it just down right stinks. My poor Mom even had to wear a mask out once since the pollen count was so high. On top of making us feel miserable, allergies have a tendency of making us look a bit miserable as well making our eyes watery, our faces puffy and our noses red – what can also be known as ALLERGY FACE™.
When I get hit with ALLERGY FACE™, my sunglasses, aloe vera gel, water and of course allergy medicine, like ZYRTEC® are my best friends. I also put a cold rag on my face at the end of the day after washing it. My sunglasses help hide my watery eyes, the aloe vera gel reduces any redness on my nose or face, the water also helps with the puffiness and of course, ZYRTEC® helps me actually survive the day and keep my allergies in check!
According to a recent survey by the makers of ZYRTEC®, 96 % of women who suffer from allergies also experience ALLERGY FACE™ – that's a mighty big percentage! In an effort to help women look their best when suffering from their allergies, the makers of ZYRTEC® have released video one of a three-part, bilingual video series on YouTube.com/Zyrtec, in which beauty and fashion expert, Carmen Ordoñez from VivaFashionBlog.com shares her personal beauty tips to take on ALLERGY FACE™ beauty challenges.
I like her tips way better than mine! Be on the lookout for the release of part two and part three of Carmen’s video series, which will be distributed in the summer and fall. After seeing this video, I'll definitely be waiting for the other two. In the meantime, be sure to follow Carmen on Twitter at @VivaFashion and check her blog www.VivaFashionBlog.com for her latest ALLERGY FACE™ tips and tricks.
