Have you ever had an allergic reaction that had you looking a mess? Almost like you forgot to put on sunscreen at the beach, then decided to watch The Notebook and slice onions at the same time? Facial redness, swelling, and watery eyes are not the most attractive sight!
How can you keep your looks up to par when you've got Allergy Face™? You can't just postpone your life due to an allergic reaction, your daily duties wait for no one. When the kids bring home pollen on their clothes from their outdoor adventures, or if you sneeze up a storm while cleaning the house, don't fret. You can still look like a million bucks, even when you don't feel like it!
5 Beauty Secrets to Look Your Best When Fighting Allergies and Colds
1. Concealer – This should be applied before other make up to reduce the appearance of redness on the nose and cheeks.
2. Bronzer and Bright Eye Shadow – Fight pale looking skin with a subtle bronzer and bright eye shadow. These will add a bit of color to your face, making you look like you're feeling just fine.
3. Colored Lip Balm – Our lips tend to dry out faster when we're sick, so be sure to keep them nice and conditioned with lip balm. The colored versions will give your lips a pop, taking the spotlight off of anything else on your face.
4. Moisturize and Hydration – Stay hydrated in and out. Drink plenty of water, and keep your skin hydrated as well. Apply a cool cloth over your puffy eyes in the morning to reduce swelling, and use a facial moisturizer to keep the skin from drying out.
5. Allergy Antihistamines – You could reduce allergy symptoms by taking an over the counter medicine. Try some ZYRTEC® Allergy tablets to combat symptoms and keep them at bay, no matter what the outdoors may bring you.
Face it (pun intended): puffy, watery eyes, a runny nose and facial redness is not attractive. Not today, and I guarantee it won't be tomorrow! Check out Zyrtec on Facebook for more information and tips to keep your allergies in check.
