Zyrtec Allergy

When I was 10 I entered the "horse phase" and as both my dad and my husband likes to groan, I never really left. They have been life's passion, my stress relief, my exercise and also my biggest headache. As someone who suffered from allergies my entire life horses were a major trigger. While I'm not actually allergic to horses themselves, I am allergic to dust mites, pollen, hay, ragweed and a few trees. All of which I encounter outside riding or cleaning stalls.

For the longest time I just dealt with it. At ten, horses trumped the puffy face, itchy-watery eyes, cotton head, and red nose by a country mile. Now that I'm older my allergies flare up less often but I'm more sensitive to the side effects. I spend those days generally unproductive, walking around in a fog. I've realized that not only does Allergy Face look awful, it causes concern for the people around me too. Friends and family approach me with concern because apparently Allergy Face strikingly resembles Just-Finished-Crying Face.

Check out these ALLERGY FACE™ beauty tips from Zyrtec, I was surprised that I learned a few new things myself.

Highlight Help
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.
Redness Reducer
Use yellow-based foundations to help neutralize redness. A yellow-based mineral pressed-powder will help prevent flaking on especially rosy areas.
Pillow Pileup
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.

    I have never thought about make up and allergies. My sister may be having that problem.

    I’m not really concerned about allergy face. I just blow my nose and call it a day maybe. I will use a little tact next time.

    Since the only make up I wear is mascara and occasionally eye shadow the tips about the allergy face really doesn’t help me thanks anyway. I never thought of allergy face.
