For When You Catch A Winter Cold

For When You Catch A Winter Cold
Winter is all sparkles and excitement until you are hit full-force with an awful wintry cold. Most people do get the sniffles or a bad cough once the temperature drops which can really dampen your mood and motivation. I have recently just got over a little cold and thought why not write a post about things I do/use to help make me feel a bit better.

Whenever I feel under the weather I personally like to solve my problems with a nice hot bath. When I get a bad cold my skin tends to need a lot more TLC, therefore I like to relax with a face mask on, preferably Clinique Pore Refining Solutions for oily skin. This mask always calms my skin down and helps reduce any redness. If I don't use a face mask I like to cleanse and tone my face. At the moment I am using the Freedom Glow Tonic* exfoliating toner, that helps even out skin tones for a clearer, brighter and more glowing complexion. When I'm run down my face does lack in that glowing, healthy appearance, therefore using this toner really helps restore some sparkle to my skin!

My eyes suffer the most when it comes to being run down, therefore a good eye cream in an essential. I like to use the Origin Ginzing Eye cream because the thick consistency always leaves my eyes feeling incredible the next day. As well as applying an eye cream I like to add a couple of eye drops because my eyes recently have felt very irritated and dry. I like to use the Bausch and Lomb Biotrue Drops, these instantly allows my eyes to feel refreshed and clean.

Once relaxed I like to light some candles, at the moment since Christmas is upon us I am burning Chocolate Orange by Kiss Air Candles*. This literally smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange, which is delicious to have burning in your room and probably helps stop the cravings! As well as this I like to make a cup of tea and usually when I am run down I will use the Tetley's Super Immune Green Tea. I cannot recommend this tea enough, I genuinely believe without this tea I would be ill a lot. This always helps fight off any cold and gives me a stronger immune system. During winter my hands always suffer a lot more with dryness off the gym and probably off carrying a lot more shopping bags! Therefore I like to pop some of the Dove Derma Spa Hand Cream* on any opportunity I get. It always leaves my hands feeling super soft without the greasiness after feeling.

What do you like to use when you get a cold??

    1. It tastes more fruity than green don't you think? Works like a charm though!
