Red Lips

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

Picture This. You apply a new shade of lipstick recently purchased from the makeup counter. As you admire your peach pout (and imagine kissing your date the next day), your lips begin to tingle. The tingling sensation quickly turns to a slight itch. Your lips are then on fire. You quickly realize you’re allergic to the pretty lipstick!

You wipe it off quickly but not fast enough. Your lips are so swollen they looks like they’ve been injected with Restylane by a 91210 quack. And you can kiss your date goodbye.

Or maybe not.

The makers of #ZYRTEC may just be able to help your beauty disaster. They have partnered with beauty and fashion expert, Carmen Ordoñez from, to help women combat #ALLERGYFACE – the beauty challenges like a puffy face, watery eyes and a red nose that are associated with typical allergy symptoms.

According to a recent survey by the makers of #ZYRTEC, 66 percent of women with allergies have felt ugly or unattractive because of their #ALLERGYFACE. I was one of those women.

Because I was the woman in the scenario with the peach, I mean, blistering red lips.

#ALLERGYFACE Home Remedies
So, what is the best way to tackle this scenario? How do we deal with those embarrassing moments where allergies get the best of us? Our allergies (or allergic reactions) don’t care if we have a hot date with a man we met online, or if we are preparing to impress our mate on our anniversary. How do women overcome this unpredictable burst of puffy face, watery eyes and runny nose? Or in my case – itchy red lips.

Carmen Ordoñez of @VivaFashion will tell you. The #LatinaBlogger and beauty and fashion expert has a personal motto – you can look great without breaking the bank. That’s music to this hard-working girls’ ears.

So, put away your Black Card and watch this video, which is the second video of Carmen’s three-part, bilingual video series, created in partnership with the makers of #ZYRTEC. Check out Carmen as she shares her simple, do-it-yourself beauty solutions to help women tackle allergy-related beauty challenges.

My Burning Lips
Now, back to my beauty challenge. Did my lips return to normal? Did I make my date? Yes and definitely. I actually used ice to soothe my lips as well as aloe vera. (Next time I will use cold metal spoons.) In no time, my pout was as sexy as the day I was born…and ready for a smooch.
