..... great song by covered by Humble Pie ! Anyway apologies for being so quiet on the blogging and social media front I have either been stuck in bed or at the hospital but I am finally feeling much better :) I thought I would share with you some bits which are mandatory to feeling better:
Most importantly is painkillers, my favourite is Anadin Extra as they have a sneaky boost of caffeine in them which is always welcomed when ill. These are great as well if you are suffering with bad period pains.
A hot water bottle is non negotiable. It is a MUST.
I'm not going to lie I usually resort to really comfy ugly pjs but I actually feel better if I make a slight effort and wear nice loungewear. I love this silk dressing gown it makes me feel a lot fresher.
I like to listen to music I usually put the iPod on shuffle, '99 problems' can strangely makes me feel like taking on the world. I listen to that song way too much...
It is really tempting to completely let yourself go and not shave etc but I always feel much better with smooth legs and the little things like this definitely make me feel more positive.
I find when I'm ill my eyes get really puffy and dark so I used the Vichy LIFTACTIV Serum 10 (£23), I simply close my eyes and glide the product across my eyelid and lashes. This helps to illuminate the eye area to help look like you have had some sleep.
To work alongside that I use the Idealia Eyes £23, I was kindly sent this product and I have been using it loads over the last few months. It is amazing at hiding tired eyes and the formula contains subtle pearly shimmer which brightens the under eye area.
Together these two products work so well together and definitely helped my eyes look slightly more human...
When you are feeling rough it is hard to motivate yourself to do things such as exfoliate and tone but these two products make it so easy and are both effective. Normally skin takes a beating when you are under the weather either from dehydration, lack of sleep or bad diet. So what happens? SPOTS. I have previously blogged about this Clarins liquid exfoliator but I have to mention again how awesome it is!
This toner is a reasonably new find, it is one of the three steps in the Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System. (£32) The whole kit is wonderful and I will always be the biggest Effaclar Duo fan. This toner is my new favourite and I love how soothing it feels. Since I have been using it my nose looks a lot clearer of blackheads woop!
My skin is combination so on my T- zone I can get oily and spotty but on cheeks and forehead I get really dry. Especially when I'm dehydrated. Last month I was invited to a S5 Skincare event where I was able to try a lot of the range. I was then sent home with a goodie bag of products to see which my favourite was. I fell in love with the Replenish Serum (£44). My goodness it makes me skin feel bloomin' amazing, it contains load of natural oils which are proven to hydrate the skin. As I always say if a product is stocked in Space NK you know it's great!
What helps you feel better??
