Achoo! This week just liken in my previous post #Autumn Warmers has been a week of dry skin, sniffles and warm clothing. Here in Christchurch it has been a pretty cold week so I have been loving curling up on the couch with a warm blanket, a good cup of tea and scrolling through my fave blogs and watching some great movies. So here are just a few of my picks for when I’m sick.
To stay hydrated I been chugging back tea and water. Too liven up the water I packed it full of lemons and limes, a great way to get some extra vitamins and ‘spice’ up the blandness.
I have also been loving porridge, yes that’s right porridge. Lol, when i’m sick I either don’t want to eat or want something hearty and warming and porridge has been the answer this week. I cover it in brown sugar and usually some bananas (that makes it healthy right lol). Its quick, easy to make and uses hardly any dishes, perfect for a quick dinner or snack after a long day at work
To combat the dryness in my skin, in particular my hands I have been loving my Delight – hand and body by Antiopodes. I get really dry hands when I’m sick and in general they can be quite dry as i use a lot of hand sanitizer at work. This product sinks in quickly and nourishes the skin. It has helped keep my hand moisturised and smooth all week, I apply it in the morning and night! Love this product and bonus: the smell is… well.. delightful 😛 I have also loved my Origins Drink Up Intensive Overngiht Mask, it has kept my skin supple and brightened and help to sooth my irritated skin around my nose. It takes awhile to fully sink in but when it dones my skin feels instantly better, less tight and more calm. Also for an honorable mention I loved my Glamglow Eye Treatmant, I wouldn’t say this is a must have product but it has helped keep those dark under-eye circles, caused by sleepless nights at bay.
PS still to come this week are my current picks for travelling….and maybe a cheeky haul ;P
