Zyrtec Allergy Face Beauty Survival Kit

Allergies have been a big issue for me since moving to the Sacramento valley over 15 years ago. Prior to that I was not really bothered by them. As an adult its even harder to deal with the puffy eyes, runny nose and sneezing. Not at all attractive! There are days I have looked a mess with mascara rubbed on my eyes and concealer worn off from blowing my nose over and over. I have another brand of allergy meds I take for everyday seasonal allergies that works great on the pollen, dust and mold. But it did not help with my cat allergies.

Cats are cute yes but I cannot touch them or be in a home that has cats for very long without my eyes puffing, skin itching, hives and a few times my throat swelling. No fun and a bit scary! Sometimes I am visiting someone and unaware they have cats until I get there. I have been able to take a Zyrtec and wait an hour or so outside and then be able to go back in to visit. Its great that it can help control my "cat attacks" as I call them. I am not sure if it works for anyone else this way but its great for me. Plus it controls my seasonal allergies too. With all the pollens, grasses and molds that aggravate my allergies have many options with allergies meds is great.

To help with my allergy face I was sent a few great beauty products. I really like the Neutrogena Brightening Eye Protector. It conceals dark circles under the eyes, perfect for those nights I am up late with my toddler. Plus it has SPF 25 in it. The Visine Soothing Wipes were great for the end of the day to take off eye makeup and have a soothing cool feeling while doing so. These would come in handy for times I am without medication for allergies to soothe itchy eyes.

  • How to feel better: Take a Zyrtec as the first step to help you feel better -  it works at hour one on the first day you take it.  Once you feel better you can take the proper steps to look better too!
  • How to be pretty not puffy: Layer on a copper bronzer and pink blush combination to really give skin oomph to help reduce redness and brighten up a puffy face.
  • How to get rid of the red nose: Layer on a moisturizing lotion at night and a lighter weight oil in the morning, followed by a yellow-based concealer to reduce redness.
  • How to brighten the eyes: Use a gold shimmer eye shadow or a white cream eyeliner pencil underneath your eyebrow arches to make a big difference without a ton of makeup.
  • How to use your accessories: If you're running late and don't have time to cover up all your allergy symptoms, lipstick and a pair of sunglasses are your best accessories.
