How To Look Good For A Cold

At least once in my life I have come across such a situation: you start to get sick, but you have no choice and you definitely need to go to an important meeting at work or to a university exam. In the first case, you feel embarrassed for an unpresentable appearance in front of your colleagues, and in the second, you make the teacher think that he did not sleep all night and was preparing for the exam at the last moment. BeautyHack has put together tips to help you look your best when you need it.

If your skin starts to peel off


it needs deep hydration, so a cream with this function should be with you all day. Apply it in the morning before leaving the house, in the afternoon on makeup, and in the evening before bed. It should be a good food with a rich nutritional content. We recommend trying Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense or Comfort on Call Allergy Tested Relief Cream. Products based on the citrus plant Jabara soothe the skin, deeply nourish and moisturize it. You can also add a couple of drops of face oil to your moisturizer - this is especially useful if it's very cold outside.

If your nose is red

An unnatural nose is what, first of all, betrays a cold person. To keep the redness less obvious, do not rush to apply the entire arsenal of dense foundations and concealers to your face. First, relieve irritation - apply a greasy layer of Cicaplast Baume B5 by La Roche-Posay. A remedy based on thermal water and panthenol will help reduce beauty and reduce flaking - it has a healing effect. Only then can the foundation be applied, although it will be better if on that day you give preference to BB or CC cream.

If you have chapped lips

During a cold, lips are especially dry and need deep moisturizing - a simple balm is indispensable here. Oil works best - massage it onto your skin. Elizabeth Arden Triple Protection Factor Lip Balm SPF30 can also help out. In the composition - shea butter, beeswax, vitamins A and E. Apply in a thick layer and wait until it is completely absorbed - it will take about 2-3 minutes.

From day to day, it is best to do with lipstick with good coverage, but not matte: this is, for example, in Bobbi Brown - in the shade Bright Rasberry. Something in between glossy and matte lipstick - it doesn't sparkle, but it doesn't give a velvety finish either. Creamy, with a rich raspberry shade, it will well hide chapped skin of the lips.

If you have a dull complexion

Bruises under the eyes, pale face - it is immediately noticeable that you are sick. Vitaminized eye patches and masks all over the face are going into battle. Try Guerlain's Super Aque Eye Smoothing Patches under your eyes to soften dark circles in 15 minutes.

the whole face is swollen, then the moisturizing mask for dehydrated skin Dermask Hydra Solution from Dr. Jart. In 40 minutes, oligo-hyaluronic acid and algae extract in their duet will refresh the skin and relieve swelling.

If you have a stuffy nose

gut is not only drugs. To relax, take a hot bath with essential oils - it will make it easier for you to breathe and speak. Mint, fir, spruce and calendula oils are suitable. You can easily find a bottle with one or another extract in any pharmacy.

If your eyes look tired

Of course, many eyes on this day should not be catchy, but you should not completely abandon it. Avoid sparkling and very light eyeshadow tones - they will only add soreness to your look. But curling your eyelashes with tongs, and then adding volume to them is just worth it. Only give preference to the mascara that will look the most natural - without dramatic or puppet effects. We recommend Benefit Roller Lash mascara - a curved silicone brush that stains every lash well and lengthens great.

If your face is swollen

Then self-massage will help you - see how to do it in Lisa Eldridge's video.

Skip this day of light contouring - you need a bronzer to accentuate the cheekbones and wings of the nose. Instead of a sparkly highlighter, use a light concealer to help whiten the skin under your eyes. It can also be applied to the nose, forehead and chin. Nars has one in Chantilly.

If your face turns yellow

When using blush, avoid pigments with a red or pinkish undertone. But peach and apricot on this day will become your best friends - they will perfectly refresh your face. Essence has such, for example - the Silky Touch Blush in the Summer Dreaming shade. Easily spread with a large fluffy brush and instantly rejuvenates skin.

But best of all, stay at home and have some hot raspberry tea!
