I'm not talking about a case of the blues, but does anyone else get a late summer cold? I can't stand it, but I've never made it a full summer in life without catching a little cold/sinus infection somewhere in there. This year was no exception. But...I still like to look good despite feeling like total garbage. A couple lifesavers?
Puffs Plus Lotion
Get a nose tissue that has a little lotion built in, so you are not constantly chaffing your nose.
Seems like a no brainer, but carry around a little anti-bac in your purse. It's best to keep your hands as clean as possible when you're not feeling well. I stock up on them during Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale.
A Fabulous Concealer
I will recommend Benefit's Erase Paste to the ends of the earth. Dab some around your eyes to get rid of dark circles and shadows caused by no sleep from coughing and around your nose to get rid of redness caused by blowing your nose.
I just discovered this wonderful product by Clinique called After-Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe. It's kind of amazing- oil free and safe for the face and body. It's really meant for a sunburn. However, I had some sitting on my nightstand from when I was burnt the other day, and decided to apply it underneath and around my red nose, and wow did it ever make a difference! I highly recommend using this on the chapped skin you may get from the sniffles. And guess what? 32/32 people on clinique.com who have reviewed it would recommend it to a friend. Doesn't get much better than that!
Hope you feel better soon!
