Have a Sweet Allergy Season w/ Less ALLERGY FACE - Sammy Makes Six

Have a Sweet Allergy Season w/ Less ALLERGY FACE

This post is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of Latina Bloggers Connect and the makers of ZYRTEC®

This allergy season hit me like a ton of bricks, literally. It's been a battle to fight them long enough to be able to go outdoors with my daughter. Fortunately I know many little tricks that I do on a daily basis, that help me fight the worst of it. It's all about keeping a cleaner home, bedroom and body as well. I also have a few natural solutions, that while don't get rid of the allergies entirely, at least help me feel much better. The main ingredient for my do-it-yourself solutions is something really delicious too, so there is no struggling to get it down. Honey is a wonderful and almost magical ingredient, that can be used to alleviate so many things: a soar throat, acne, uneven skin tone, and it has many topical uses as well. 

Honey is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory so it is really great for calming skin and lowering swelling which is caused by allergies. A lemon and honey mask not only lower swelling but have been helping me clear up a lot of those blemishes that tend to pop up in the summer because of the heat. In a hot tea right before bed or even just a spoonful, is wonderful for my throat. A few months ago, natural honey is what finally helped me kick a 2 month old case of bronchitis. 

Also familiar with #ALLERGYFACE is #LatinaBlogger and beauty and fashion expert Carmen Ordoñez, @VivaFashion, who has teamed up with the makers of ZYRTEC® to share her personal beauty tips to combat ALLERGY FACE™. Carmen's personal motto is that you can look great without having to break the bank (awesome) and has some wonderful tips that will really help with ALLERGY FACE. Here are a few of the ones that really resonated with me because again, they are natural ways of dealing with symptoms. 
  • 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.
