With Spring and Summer comes beautiful flowers and wispy trees.  However, with this natural beauty also comes allergies.  Allergies not only come with the seasons, but can come with some of our most beloved pets too.  If you’ve ever experienced allergies, you know they are no fun at all!  The constant sneezing, sniffling, runny nose, stuffy head, and itchy eyes leaves us with what we’ll call “Allergy Face®.”  

I thought about taking a picture of my “Allergy Face®” and sharing it with y’all, but decided against it.  Describing it is good enough.  Let’s see, I start with the red nose, which is raw from constantly wiping with tissues.  Then I have the puffy eyes and red eyeballs.  Yeah – that’s attractive right?  Not!!!  Then I get that all-over, “I’m sick – leave me alone,” pale look that covers my face.  Uh yeah – definitely no beauty queen here when it comes to my “Allergy Face®!”

I’m happy to say, “No more Allergy Face® for me baby,” thanks to ZYRTEC®!  There are a lot of allergy medicines out there, so what makes ZYRTEC® so special?  Here are a few reasons:

– ZYRTEC® provides 24-hour relief of allergy symptoms

– ZYRTEC® starts working during the first hour on the first day you take it (in other words, right away!)

Celebrity makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg (@JamieMakeup on Twitter), helps us combat Allergy Face® beauty challenges (ya know, the watery eyes, red nose and puffy face I described above).  She shares some helpful beauty tips for allergy sufferers like me and to that, I say “Thank you Jamie!”  Jamie has also created six makeup “looks” that are perfect for allergy sufferers who are still trying to look their best, despite their “Allergy Face®.”

How would you describe your “Allergy Face®?”  What allergies do you suffer from?

  1. Allergies can be so hard to deal with. I am so glad you found Zyrtec to help you!

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I actually do use Zyrtec. I have terrible hayfever in the spring time and when it kicks into high gear, I need to get rid of that “puffy” face STAT.

  3. Ew, and the fall allergies are coming. Those are worse for me than springtime ones – less rain to wash it away, too.

  4. Melinda says:

    i don’t suffer too bad from allergies. The most I get is the itchy eyes

  5. I love Zyrtec- it is the only thing I can take to make my eyes not itch and not fall asleep. All allergy eye drops can not be used with contacts, so I have to have something oral.

  6. Mitch says:

    I love that, allergy face! I can’t say much about this product except in the form of a testimonial, I take it every day and it works!

  7. Debra says:

    Allergies make me all puffy under my eyes. Jamie has some awesome tips to keep in mind when putting on makeup – so as not to accentuate the allergies, but camouflage them a bit more!

  8. Allergies are a (insert not so nice word). Zyrtec has always helped when they attack!

  9. Scott says:

    I’m fortunate not to have any allergies, but my wife gets them twice a year. It seems no OTC medicine will help her specific case, she has to get a prescription every year.

  10. bekki says:

    I have taken Zertec for the last month and a half. I go through a real rough spell late spring and early summer and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t make it without it. The allergies play havoc with my asthma

  11. Tracey says:

    Allergies can prevent you from doing a lot of great summer activities. It’s great you found something that helps you!

  12. So far I have been pretty good with my allergies. I have never tried Zyrtec.

  13. Dina says:

    My daughter goes on these kicks of breaking out in hives. Zyrtec always makes it better!

  14. MommaDJane says:

    I carry Zyrtec with me in my purse. During the heavy allergy seasons I have to take it daily. It is the only allergy medication on the market that actually helps me. In the country in Texas my allergies have gotten much worse over the past year.

  15. Tami says:

    When I was a child I was deathly allergic to pork, but somehow I grew out of it. I don’t know if that’s weird or not but I am not complaining. As of now, I have no significant allergies to anything, nothing that bothers me so much that it hinders my day to day activities. I am so thankful of this and pray that I continue along this path.

  16. Pam says:

    I think I’m allergic to just about everything. My allergy face mostly involves watery, puffy eyes. I use Zyrtec all the time and I’m glad they offer these beauty tips for allergy sufferers like me!

  17. My whole family sees a holistic dr. that gets rid of our allergies each season so we don’t have to depend on meds – BUT – for the week or two that it takes to ‘work’ we lean on Zyrtec. Especially my hubby and one of our kids who both get seasonal allergies really bad.

  18. I love Zyrtec. It works so well for all of my family. Glad we don’t get allergy face thanks to Zyrtec.

  19. Mary says:

    I hate allergy face. Puffy eyes, watery eyes, redness, yuck. Glad there is a solution

  20. Mickey says:

    We have the worst allergies in this house. Even if we don’t step foot outside, we’re still affected by seasonal allergies.

  21. Allergies are the WORST! I hope that I don’t get them.

  22. I do not know what I would do without my Zyrtec. My eyes would be watering 24/7 if it weren’t for it!

  23. Allergies are so frustrating sometimes. It is not always easy to find something that helps, glad Zyrtec is working for you.

  24. Christie says:

    I get puffy eyes and runny nose. I hate allergies in Florida

  25. Thanks for the tips. I have seasonal allergies but they seem to happen all year 😛 I get really puffy eyes and a red nose and just look plain nasty when the allergies get bad.

  26. Kenda S says:

    My worst allergy reaction is when I get pollen on my contacts. Oh man! Instant itchy, red, swollen eye. I definitely need to start a daily antihistamine.

  27. My daughter takes Zyrtec, her and I have terrible allergies it seems like all year long, nothing but itchy and sneezing. I hate it, especially blood shot eyes.

  28. Erica says:

    My oldest suffers from seasonal allergies. We use Zyrtec as the first line of defense and it’s usually all we need!

  29. Emily says:

    My husband has allergies all of the time. He usually ends up with eyes that can’t open very well, red face and runny nose!

  30. Racquel says:

    Zyrtec and I have been good friends for a VERY long time! I actually have allergy face today!

  31. Lori says:

    Allergies are terrible! I’ve tried everything.

  32. Rosey says:

    My mom gets ‘allergy face’ from time to time. I wonder if she knows about Zyrtec. She lives in a different state, but I’ll be sure to bring it up the next time we chat on the phone.

  33. Allergies have been AWFUL this year! Within the past 2 weeks they have really been kicking my tail! But I just bought some Zyrtec last night so hopefully it helps!

  34. Rachael says:

    I use Zyrtec. It works well for my allergies except for a few weeks in the Spring when nothing seems to help.

  35. Great tips! I hate allergy face. Feels like an alien….. lol.

  36. I’m lucky to not have to suffer from allergies. My husband does horribly though.

  37. Brett says:

    I have been using Zyrtec for a while now. It seems to really help keep my allergies under control.

  38. I have a friend who really struggles with her allergies. Lucky that I managed to escape the allergy issues.

  39. I am a bit bummed that you decided against sharing YOUR allergy face:) Pollen always gets me, until I take Zyrtec.

  40. Shell says:

    My eyes get all red and irritated. It looks like I’m crying! I hate it!

  41. My poor daughter and husband always have to take allergy medicine. Zyrtec works great!
