It's that time of year again. It's officially freezing cold all the time, at least it is here in the UK, and you can't go out without at least 15 layers on. So, inevitably everyone gets a cold. I've been really ill for a week and a bit now with the flu and without a couple of my beauty essentials, I'd feel even worse and look worse!
One of the things i find the most annoying about colds/flu is how dry the skin around your nose gets because you have to blow your nose every 12 seconds. It annoys me as i already have dry enough skin but this dries it out so much that i can't even wear any make up! One of my biggest saviours this time was the Origins Drink Up mask which helped give my skin back some of the moisture it lost and helped to soothe the sore, sensitive area. I've also been using the Garnier Moisture Match especially and i definitely saw an improvement once i started using it on those areas.
Another annoying part of being ill is how dry and chapped your lips get! I mean, how dare they get all chapped? Don't they know it's prime lipstick wearing weather?! I've been using a couple of different lip balms but I've been loving using my good old Vaseline Lip Therapy which really does what it says on the tin (this is also great for dry skin!) and the CocoRose tinted lip balm has helped make my lips look kissable again.
What Beauty Products do you use when you're in? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,
