I'm Back! Things I've Learnt From Being Sick

Monday 26 March 2012

After a week of being sick, I'm finally ready to blog again! And here are some beauty related things I've learnt.

Your skin freaks out.....majorly!
My skin became really oily (when its normally normal to combination), and it became REALLY patchy. Pink patches broke out on the sides of my face where I had never seen them before. To try and get my skin back to normal, I am using a serum both morning and night (when I normally only use it at night). I'm also using a moisturiser that is for oily/combination skin for the next week until my skin goes back to normal. 

Are you Rudolph's  cousin?
When your nose is running and you can't stop sneezing, your nose starts to glow red! One of the best things I do for my red, sore nose is to put a Aloe Vera Gel onto my skin to help protect and repair the skin.

Use a lip balm that you can throw away
Keep away from your favourite lip products and just use a plain lip balm that you can throw away once your cold or flu is gone. Using lip balm can transfer germs onto it, so once you are no longer are sick, throw it (and the germs) out.

What are your tips for when your sick?


  1. Aw, sorry to hear you're still sick..I took a break from blogging for a bit to catch up on my rest and was wondering why you haven't been around!

    I hope you're feeling a bit better now!

    My tips for when I'm sick are to get as much rest as possible and to drink as much hot fluids as I can stomach. That flushes the fever out and gives my body time to recover!


  2. Good to hear that you are back in business:) My one saviour when I am sick is the Fess Nasal Gel because it does save your nose. I should start charging commission because I have recommended it to so many and it really works. xx
