Say Goodbye to #ALLERGYFACE with these Beauty Tips!

This post is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of Latina Bloggers Connect and the makers of ZYRTEC®

Do you suffer from #ALLERGYFACE? I do! Ugh! I found out something new about myself this spring. I’m now a victim of Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis.  I thought I caught three sinus colds this spring. Nope…good ol’ Hay fever caused by pollen and other fun allergens in the air.

Curves-and-Chaos-Zyrtec-Allergy-FaceWell, it only makes sense being that it’s spring and the warmer weather triggers those seasonal allergies. And not only did it affect a few of my blogger events because I felt horrible, but it also took a toll on how I looked. The redness from sneezing and blowing my nose a million times was disgusting.

The makers of ZYRTEC® totally know what I’m talking about, because they coined the term “ALLERGY FACE™.” They even partnered with my friend Carmen Ordoñez (beauty/fashion expert) from, to help us women combat this #ALLERGYFACE –the beauty challenges like a puffy face, watery eyes and a red nose that are associated with typical allergy symptoms.

Read my beauty tips to battle ALLERGY FACE™ below.

Here are my beauty tips to combat #ALLERGYFACE:

  • Pre-Allergies: Keep tissue with lotion on-hand and ready to go. This will help cut down on that awful soreness, skin irritation, and cracking you get from blowing your nose all of the time. 
  • Peeling/Cracked Skin Around Nose: This can be so annoying. Try keeping the area moisturized with petroleum jelly, aloe vera, or unscented thick lotions.
  • Itchy/Watery Eyes: If you insist on wearing eye makeup during this time, I suggest wearing waterproof mascara and eyeliner.
  • Dark Circles Under Eyes: I recommend using an eye brightening concealer under your eyes to battle the darkness. Hahaha…seriously though…it works!
  • Redness: Try using retouching or color correcting products. This will help diminish any redness. And after applying your makeup, make sure to use a finishing powder. This will set your makeup and help it last longer.
