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

*I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour for Latina Mom Bloggers on behalf of ZYRTEC® ALLERGY FACE® and received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.    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.

All opinions are 100% mine.    It's ironic that I was going to write this post today because I am suffering terribly from allergies this week.  My allergies came on in full force around Wednesday afternoon with a variety of the usual symptoms including a scratchy throat, a stuffy nose, and itchy and watery eyes.  Things have only gotten worse and today I feel like my head is literally going to explode with the congestion.     Unfortunately, allergy symptoms not only make you feel terrible but they also wreak havoc on your facial appearance by making your eyes glassy, causing your skin to swell and look blotchy, and making the skin under your nose raw and red from continuous nose blowing.  As you can see from the photo below, I'm suffering from a full blown case of what is commonly referred to as “ALLERGY FACE™” :    Looking my best is very important to me so I am always seeking ways … [Read more...]
