"Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile."
~William Cullen Bryant
Autumn is by far my favorite time of year! To me, it's even more beautiful than Spring; the colors, the crisp feel in the air, the warm festivities approaching, I just love it. This week I've noticed that we are finally moving into the Fall season, and I couldn't be more excited! There is only one flaw to this almost perfect time of year: the transition itself. When the season's change, they bring with them a brand new set of allergies to face--it's most obnoxious. That's usually how I can tell that Fall is coming--my eyes get dry, my nose and sinuses stuffy and runny, my throat turns into a toad each morning, and my face and skin break out in random patches of itchy redness. It's not even close to Christmas and I already look like Rudolph.
Thankfully, we live in an amazing technological era of the world where we are provided with tools to counteract these nasty allergies, one of which is a wonderful little antidote, ZYRTEC®. ZYRTEC® is the #1 allergist recommended brand among OTC oral antihistamines. It provides fast* allergy relief of your worst allergy symptoms of sneezing, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, and itchy nose and throat, caused by indoor and outdoor allergy triggers such as dust, mold and pet dander, tree pollen, weeds and grasses. Check out Zyrtec on Facebook for more!
When I was in London many moons ago, I encountered an entire country filled with new allergies that I was not prepared for, especially seen by the lovely red hives that would form from everything that I touched; fortunately, one of my peers was kind enough to share Zyrtec with me, and it was amazing! It really helped with my congestion and with my hives, and I could actually enjoy my time abroad rather than spend it in a sinus-induced fog, hiding my red itchy skin from photos. It was great.
So, not only does ZYRTEC® help you FEEL better, but if you check out their website there are TONS of beauty tips for helping to combat Allergy Face beauty challenges (remember how I told you about my Rudolph nose when allergies hit?) Check out this great video all about Allergy Face!
I've always known that other women out there suffer from allergies, but it seems like I was the only one that LOOKED like I have allergies--turns out that is SO not true! Two-thirds of women feel ugly/unattractive because of of their allergy face. In fact, over 58% of women have been told that they look like they're "coming down" with something, simply because of Allergy Face--50% of women have actually MISSED going out because of this. My favorite, is that 53% of women wear "allergy disguises"--isn't that nuts? I know personally I've kept concealer in my jeans pocket, so that every time I blow my nose from my allergies, I could quickly cover my bright red Rudolph nose before anyone could ask me if I'd been crying, or if I'm sick!
