Have you fallen prey to the sniffley, stuffy, “someone just put me out of my misery already”-flu yet? According to the CDC, you have a five to 20 percent chance of catching that jerk, so you better be on your best behavior. Especially now that it’s officially “flu season.” Oy. How to protect yourself? First and foremost, get a flu shot, says the CDC. Secondly, guard yourself against germs. Having some sanitizer on hand will help you kill sickly bacteria. La Fresh Eco-Beauty Healthy Hand Sanitizer Wipes ($20, 48ct) pack a serious punch in the prevention department, as they knock out germs, but don’t dry out hands like most alcohol based wipes and gels. If you do catch the flu, despite best efforts, cater your beauty routine to help mask some of the symptoms: Moisturize The weather outside is dry enough as it is, and all that nose blowing isn’t doing your skin any favors. Make sure to add ultra thick moisturizer in dry areas. An eye cream, which tends to be on the thicker side, can actually help you out around the nostrils. Skip the powder foundation Liquid foundation is a better friend to your face when your skin is dry and reddened, as powder will be more likely to flake. Apply cream blush Applying a pop of rosy pink on the apples of your cheeks will make you look like you at least have a glow.
