Rebekah: This beauty talk is for all you allergy sufferers who have had to deal with the onset of ALLERGY FACE™ -- beauty challenges like watery eyes, red nose and puffy face.
Chyron: Rebekah George, National Beauty Expert
According to a survey commissioned by the makers of ZYRTEC®, 96 percent of women have dealt with beauty challenges that can accompany allergies. I’m here with actress Debra Messing, who knows a thing or two about dealing with ALLERGY FACE™.
Debra: Rebekah, I definitely know what ALLERGY FACE™ is and it isn’t pretty walking around with watery eyes, a puffy face and red nose. As a beauty expert, what tips and trick do you recommend so that you can still look great?
Chyron: Debra Messing, Actress and Allergy Sufferer
Rebekah: Well, I always tell allergy sufferers, when it comes to your makeup, less is more! You want to keep it simple by dampening your makeup brushes. This helps to give you that dramatic look we want without irritating your ALLERGY FACE™.
If you’re experiencing puffiness around your eyes, you should actually extend your concealer directly down toward the hollows of your nose and this is a great tip to take the focus off your eyes.
Debra: I also wear glasses and, as you know, they actually magnify puffiness around your eyes. So, what I’ve learned, thanks to you, is to compensate. Look for a concealer two shades darker than your skin tone and I like to pat it on with my index finger or a makeup brush to avoid irritating my skin.
Rebekah: You are good!
Debra: Thank you!
Rebekah: I like it!
You also want to avoid rubbing your skin, it may be sensitive already from a runny nose, too much tissue use. Another really good idea is to look for these gentle or “tugless” makeup removers and cleansers because they really make a big difference at the end of the day when you’re removing any makeup and cleaning your skin.
Debra: These tips are so great, Rebekah and will be very helpful to allergy sufferers like me. They’re simple and quick, and can help all of us women look our best the entire allergy season!
