Something that 30-somethings all look forward to: the developing of seasonal allergies. And this season, my allergies were ridiculous.
Watery eyes, red nose, puffy face? Check. (and ugh.)
I had to find a way to combat my Allergy Face. Enter Zyrtec.
Zyrtec offers QUICK relief from symptoms (OTC, FTW!), so I feel better (itchy nose and throat is the worst!), and check out some of these ALLERGY FACE beauty tips to help you LOOK better too:
When applying your foundation, layer a shimmery highlighter underneath for extra brightening. For best results, highlight the right areas on your face: top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, brow bone, and arch of your lip.
Use yellow-based foundations to help neutralize redness. A yellow-based mineral pressed-powder will help prevent flaking on especially rosy areas.
At night, use an extra pillow or two to help elevate your head. This can help drain fluids from your face so skin and eyes are less puffy in the morning.
Don’t Wait to Hydrate
Drink plenty of water when you’re dealing with ALLERGY FACE™ beauty challenges. Mix things up by creating your own beauty water. Cucumber, grapefruit or lemon slices will taste great and leave you feeling refreshed.
Invest in a box of lotion-treated tissues that are fragrance-free. After sneezing and blowing your nose all day, their gentleness will prevent the area around your nose from becoming sore.
The BIGGEST mistake women make is to keep makeup for longer than one year (51% of you — tsk tsk!). That's just another culprit of Allergy Face waiting to happen. I know when a mascara is "going bad" on me and exacerbating my allergy face symptoms: runny, itchy eyes are no fun — especially after spending all that time getting ready in the first place.
