Allergies are the WORST. Literally! I mean, allergies can affect not only how we feel, but also how we look. Mr. R definitely has allergies worse than I do, but believe me- I feel it, too!
Unfortunately for the ladies, many women experience ALLERGY FACE™ – beauty challenges like a puffy face, red nose and watery eyes – that are associated with typical allergy symptoms. In fact, a recent survey by the makers of ZYRTEC® states that two-thirds (66 percent) of women with allergies have felt ugly or unattractive because of their ALLERGY FACE™. That makes me #SADFACE!
Because we all know NO ONE wants or likes #ALLERGYFACE, #LatinaBlogger and beauty and fashion expert Carmen Ordoñez, @VivaFashion, has teamed up with the makers of ZYRTEC® to share her personal beauty tips to combat ALLERGY FACE™. Want to hear more? Just keep reading!
Carmen Ordoñez’s personal motto is that you can look great without breaking the bank. You don’t need pricey beauty products to achieve great results. In the video below, created in partnership with the makers of ZYRTEC®, Carmen shares her simple, do-it-yourself beauty solutions to help women tackle allergy-related beauty challenges.
Some of Carmen’s beauty tips that have been passed down from her mama y abuelita include:
- How to Avoid Irritating a Red Nose: Use baby wipes instead of tissues, which are gentler on the skin.
- How to Relieve a Puffy Face: Try drinking watermelon juice. Watermelons are a high water content fruit and are an excellent source of antioxidants.
- How to Help Hydrate a Puffy Face: Eat more fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, celery and zucchini all of which have high water content. Citrus fruits and berries are also rich in vitamin C.
- How to Refresh Your ALLERGY FACE™: Place two metal spoons in the refrigerator and then place the back of the spoons on your eyelids for five minutes
