Busy Season, No Time For Allergies

I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour for Latina Mom Bloggers on behalf of ZYRTEC® ALLERGY FACE® and received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

As you follow my Trendy Journey you have seen me complain many times about allergies. My fashion and beauty commitments, speaking engagements, media and TV appearances and busy life as an entrepreneur don’t leave room for bad hair, allergy look days!


This past week I experienced something I hadn’t before, in my many years of allergy suffering; I’ve always experienced puffy and watery eyes, red and stuffed nose, dark circles under my eyes, but two days before a speaking engagement in Ohio, I noticed blemishes, which I patiently worked to remove two days before the conference.
On the day before my speech, I was in my hotel room, working on this post and noticed larger red blemishes on the left side of my nose. Something I’d never experienced before.

I rushed into Jacky Gomez’s looks to find something that would fit my wardrobe and occasion and this is the one I that chose, using ZYRTEC®’s initiative to help women look fresh-faced and flawless during allergy season; they have partnered with celebrity makeup artist Jackie Gomez to help Latinas like me, tackle ALLERGY FACE® beauty challenges like a red nose, puffiness and watery eyes. As an allergy sufferer herself, Gomez knows how allergies can disrupt her daily beauty routine, so she has used her expertise working with celebrities like Beyoncé, Zoe Saldana and Maite Perroni, along with her personal experiences dealing with allergies to create six celebrity-inspired looks that will help Latinas disguise their ALLERGY FACE® beauty challenges and obtain great looks! 

I was so fortunate to meet Jackie in Miami in the Spring and share my allergy problems. She helped me not only solve them, but gave me extra tips for upcoming trends!

After the next day make up was taken care of, I took my ZYRTEC®, which helped me relieve the allergy symptoms of watery eyes and itchy nose.These symptoms can be caused by allergy triggers such as dust, mold, pet dander, tree pollen, weeds and grasses. I love ZYRTEC® because it starts working immediately for me, and provides 24-hour relief.

In the morning, I still noticed the light marks but they looked good enough to be covered with make up, using the amazing tips shared by her.
This is the result, flawless skin, ready to impress to match my speech at the Conference!
