Sick Day Essentials

I’ve felt a bit sick for the last two weeks now, and it’s finally fully come out in full force. Hopefully this means that it will get out of my system now, but with my immune system, who knows?! When I’ve not been sleeping it off, I’ve felt pretty darn ughh (technical term) and like any self-respecting blogger relied on my stash on trusted favorites to get my through the hardest times. 

Let’s start practically, if your ill you want to get rid of the most iirritatingand uncomfortable symptoms as soon as possible. If you have a headache or migraine can’t recommend 4head enough. It’s like those cool strips you stick to your forehead, but without the social humiliation. It’s a clear balm that you simply swipe across your forehead for cooling relief.  For the sniffles, you simply cannot beat H. Gillerman Organics Pure Breathing Sinus Remedy. Although pricey, it lasts forever and is worth it’s weight in gold. The speed it works and the releif it gives is second to none, definitely a “just in case” must have. 

Once you’ve managed to get on top of the symptoms, you undoubtedly want to make yourself feel more human. Obviously the first step is prevention of getting worse and that’s where Soap & Glory’s Hand Maid comes in. Beautifully scented anti-bacteria hand wash, this will rid you any germs that are left lingering on your hand. I’d also recommend using an intensive lip balm. When I’m run down, my lips seem to dry out rapidly so I always keep Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips around. As the name suggests, this product was originally designed for soothing sore nipples after breastfeeding, but has become popular as an intensive lip balm. Spritzing my face with a spray such as Caudalie Beauty Elixir helps me feel fresh and more awake, but if your having trouble getting your beauty sleep, the best product for you is This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. The soft lavender scent relaxes you, letting you get a peaceful rest so you will hopefully wake up feeling a bit more like yourself.
