How To Reinvigorate Your Skin After A Cold Or Flu

As flu season swings into full gear, bringing with it all the sniffles and aches, your skin often bears the brunt of the battle. Once you've conquered the worst of the flu and can venture out without a tissue at hand, we think you should direct your attention to resuming that much-needed skincare regime. Here's how you can reintegrate natural skincare into your routine and restore your skin's post-cold glow.

Soothing a Sore Nose

One of the first casualties of a cold is the skin around your nose, often left red and inflamed from constant tissue use. The key here is gentle care. Opt for a mild, natural skincare cleanser and avoid any harsh scrubbing. To help repair and protect this delicate area, use products rich in hydrating ingredients like a gentle face oil. These components not only moisturise but also strengthen the skin's barrier, offering soothing relief without aggravating the skin further.

Healing Chapped Lips

Chapped lips are another common complaint during flu season, especially for those who end up breathing through their mouths. To combat this, steer clear of the temptation to lick your lips. Instead, apply a natural lip balm formulated with ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, almond oil, and vitamin E. These natural moisturisers provide deep nourishment, helping to heal and protect your lips without further irritation.

Depuffing the Eyes

Illness can leave your eyes looking puffy and tired. While this usually improves as you recover, you can help the process along with a cold facial roller. This simple tool helps reduce inflammation and can stimulate fluid drainage, revitalizing your under-eye area. For an added boost, look for eye creams in your natural skincare routine that contain caffeine or green tea—both known for their de-puffing properties.

Reinvigorating the Skin

When you're down with a cold, your skincare routine often takes a backseat. As you bounce back, reintroducing products like the Sweet Facial Oil into your skincare regimen can make a significant difference. This oil is rich in antioxidant, fatty acids and vitamins, which help combat the damaging effects of free radicals from environmental pollution and UV rays, soothing redness and inflammation. Its deep hydrating properties, courtesy of ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, provide much-needed moisture, restoring your skin's hydration levels and plumpness.

Giving Your Skin Time to Heal

Above all, it’s crucial to allow your skin—and yourself—adequate time to recover. Patience and gentle, attentive care will help your skin bounce back more beautifully than ever.

As you move past the sniffles and into clearer days, incorporating these natural skincare tips will not only help restore your skin’s health but also its glow. Remember, the key to radiant skin is as much about what you put on your body as what you put in it. Stay hydrated, eat well, and let your skincare routine reflect your body's needs for natural healing and rejuvenation.
