The best makeup tips for hay fever sufferers
Who doesn't love spring and summer, am I right? Except, if you suffer from hay fever, that question might give you pause to consider the itchy eyes, streaming red nose, sneezing and sensitive skin those seasons are likely to bring.
Other than following pharmacists' tips about how to keep pollen from seriously messing with your day (monitoring the pollen count on the Metservice website is a must) it's also helpful to learn how to prevent it from messing with your makeup, with a few key products and some quick tips.
The first step is to treat your face delicately, choosing products that are designed for sensitive, reactive skin. Brands like Avene and La Roche Posay are perfect, as they are very gentle and contain ingredients to calm and take down redness in your complexion. They’re also fragrance-free and unfussy to use.
The second step is to choose makeup that won't do a disappearing act when you’re calling on tissues and eye drops all the time. Long-wearing and waterproof formulas are a godsend.
