Changing the Face Of Allergies: The Makers Of Zyrtec® Unveil New Resources To Tackle ALLERGY FACE™ Beauty Challenges

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of ZYRTEC® understand that allergy symptoms not only impact the way allergy sufferers feel, but also how they look. In fact, more than half of the men and women surveyed (54 percent) admit to experiencing allergy-related challenges like watery eyes, a red nose, or a puffy face during fall allergy season.[1] The ZYRTEC® Brand has teamed up with actress Debra Messing, as well as beauty experts Rebekah George and Carmen Ordonez[2], to provide insightful beauty tips and tricks for combating ALLERGY FACE™.  

THE REAL FACE OF ALLERGIES
As a severe allergy sufferer, actress Debra Messing understands the power of allergy relief.

"Allergies are a real challenge for me and can get in the way of both my professional and personal life, whether it be filming on set or taking my son for a walk through the park," said Messing. "I take ZYRTEC® to relieve my allergy symptoms so I can get back to doing the things that I love."

In a new video on the ZYRTEC® YouTube Channel, Messing sat down with beauty expert, Rebekah George, for a one-on-one chat to shed light on another challenge for female sufferers, ALLERGY FACE™ – beauty woes like a red nose, watery eyes and puffy face that can accompany typical allergy symptoms.

"I know how difficult it is to look your best when you are battling allergy symptoms," Messing added.  "I am excited to help the makers of ZYRTEC® support female allergy sufferers and share with them my personal ALLERGY FACE™ beauty remedies that I have learned over the years from makeup artists and other celebrity friends."

STRICT BEAUTY TALK
Understanding that 81 percent of women with allergies think they can never fully cover up their ALLERGY FACE™[3], the ZYRTEC® Brand also enlisted George and Hispanic beauty expert Ordonez, to continue the conversation and share easy beauty tips for reducing the appearance of a puffy face, distracting from watery eyes and concealing a red nose via a series of tutorial videos.

In George's videos, she helps allergy sufferers embrace the latest beauty trends despite their allergy symptoms and unveils a 60-second ALLERGY FACE™ beauty routine that is sure to make life a little bit easier during allergy season. Additionally, she reinforces the importance of cleaning out your makeup bag with simple "keep, toss, wash" rules in addition to spelling out the "dos and don'ts" of dealing with ALLERGY FACE™ beauty challenges. 

In Ordonez's series of three videos, which are available in both English and Spanish, she offers tips for Latinas seeking help with allergy-related beauty challenges. Topics include quick makeup fixes as well as unique, homemade remedies that have been passed down through generations to help Latinas embrace their natural belleza.

ZYRTEC® BRAND TAKING ALLERGY FACE™ BEAUTY COUNTER ON THE ROAD
