Face Your Allergies While Staying Beautiful! #EnfrentaTusAlergias #ZYRTEC #Ad

    I normally wear disposable contacts when I am not at home.  This past week, my allergies have been wreaking havoc on my eyes and I had to wear my glasses because they were itchy, watery, and scratchy.  I am not a happy camper because I love donning my sunglasses during the warm weather months and this whole allergy situation is totally cramping my style.

    Don’t even get me started on some of my other allergy symptoms including constantly sneezing, spontaneous red blotches on my skin, and a post-nasal drip. I mean really, is this really the price that we have to pay to just be able to enjoy a little sun and some warm weather?  Well I, for one, am not giving up without a fight and I plan to look beautiful this season despite my allergies! A luchar!

    Fortunately, I don’t have to tackle this beauty dilemma alone thanks to ZYRTEC® partnering up with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez to help Latinas overcome ALLERGY FACE® beauty obstacles such as a red nose, puffy face and watery eyes.  Gomez also suffers from allergies and is quite familiar with how allergies can put a damper on your daily beauty ritual so she has created some beautiful looks to combat ALLERGY FACE®.  Ayudame, help me, Jackie!

    She has tapped into her expertise working with celebrities like Beyoncé, Zoe Saldana and Maite Perroni, help women disguise their ALLERGY FACE® beauty challenges to look beautiful no matter what time of the day it is.  Thank goodness that she has come up with some beautiful looks that were inspired by the very celebrities that she has collaborated with over the years.  Here is my take on her Fresh and Glamorous look:

    It’s exciting to know that I won’t have to miss my close-up due to my pesky allergies!  ZYRTEC® has always helped me to relieve the allergy symptoms that plague me the most due to my seasonal allergies.  These symptoms can be caused by allergy triggers such as dust, mold, pet dander, tree pollen, weeds and grasses which makes them a nuisance throughout the year.  No wonder it is the number one allergist recommended brand!

    The makers of ZYRTEC® know that allergies can affect not only the way you feel, but also how you look.  For tips on how to recreate Jackie’s looks, make sure you visit the  ZYRTEC® Facebook page and stay beautiful while facing your allergies!

    This has been the worst year to date for allergies in my opinion. I have suffered with hayfever since I was a kid and they have been brutal for me this year.

  2. Mandy Young Carter says

    Luckily I do not have to worry about allergies much. My husband has them big time and he tries to just ignore them!

  3. Allergies can be awful – I used to get hit with swollen, runny eyes. Tough wood it hasn’t been so bad as I’ve got older – good luck beating the allergies this year 🙂 x

  4. Jennifer Williams says

    I have been lucky this year, we moved to a new area and so far my allergies have not bothered me at all. My boys however are all suffering and Zyrtec is helping them quite a bit.

  5. This was such a refreshing and helpful post! I’m not feeling very beautiful with these harsh allergies dragging me down this week. Will have to put these tips to work!

  6. I like to use a good moisturizer and light makeup when I have allergies. My cheeks always get so puffy!

  7. Nice!! Voy a dar una miradita a sus tips y articles. Not that I have that many allergy problems, pero a veces tengo un poco de sniffles y mi nariz se vuelve roja. :p

  8. I don’t have any allergies, I’ve always been fortunate that way.

    • Robin Rue says

      You are lucky! I have suffered from allergies for my entire life and they are definitely no fun!

  9. Sucks to hear about your allergies! I can totally relate because up until a month ago I use to spend 80% of my time sneezing, rubbing my burning/itchy eyes, itchy throat and ears you name it, I had it. Due to that I would always avoid wearing makeup because I spend all my time rubbing my eyes and blowing my nose. I use to take some meds for it too but my MIL got me this saline solution rinse that I use once a day and I haven’t had to take any medication since I started using it.

  10. Onica {MommyFactor} says

    I actually dont have seasonal allergies but know many who does. Getting tips to help them keep looking their best is very useful.

  11. I hope this works for you. I know that it is hard when you want to be able to wear your contacts.

  12. I am one of the lucky few in the world that do not have seasonal allergies. However my BFF gets them so bad! I’ll have to show her this post. These are some great tips.

  13. OMG! They are so horrible this year…not sure if it was the terribly long winter, or all this rain that is causing me problems….but I reach for allergy meds as soon as I pop out of bed nowadays.

  14. celebbabylaundry says

    That reminds me it’s allergy season, I hate this season; I feel like everything gives me allergies.

  15. Rebecca Bryant says

    Lots of cold wash clothes on my eyes. Not sure it helps but I do it.

  16. Ashley Bunker says

    Oh boy. My allergies started a couple years ago and I have been struggling with how to look kept together when they flare up…I’ll get there eventually I hope!

  17. I hate allergy season. I find I am sneezing so often, I look like I am crying.

  18. Allergies are tough to have and still look great. Especially when they give you those dark circles under your eyes. Fortunately for me, mine are not that bad. Usually just cool pack on my face will do the trick.

  19. My daughter’s eyes tear up horribly during allergy season. She has to stop wearing eye makeup!

  20. Veronica Solomon says

    I do experience allergic reactions to lipstick. I am not sure what ingredient causes that so I stay away and use lip gloss

  21. Luckily I don’t have allergies, but I know some people who do. I will share with them!

  22. Jennifer Williams says

    We moved to a new area and I am happy to say I have not had any issues with allergies yet. My boys are not that lucky though and they are all using Zyrtec.
