On Saturday morning I woke up with a full on cold and so I thought I’d share with you my sick day routine.
I generally wrap up in warm PJs and my soft dressing gown and spend a really long time on the sofa with a mug of tea, my phone and a book.
After a while I start to feel really sorry for myself and this is my cue to get dressed. Getting dressed always makes me feel a little better, but I make sure to stay in warm and comfy clothes so that I can rest and relax.
I’m wearing an old tshirt, some super slouchy pants, my big cardigan and, of course, my bunny slippers.
Makeup isn’t really a priority, but I do want to freshen up and stay moisturised! So I use a very quick exfoliating pad from Boots and put some Olay moisturiser on or if its time to head to bed I’ll put on my Botanics moisturiser.
I keep a couple of lip products close to keep my lips in good shape and I’ve been using my little pot of Body Shop Vitamin E cream around my nose to battle the really dry skin from all the nose blowing I’ve been doing.
Then it’s back to the sofa with more tea and a blanket, I spend the rest of the day watching YouTube, reading and watching TV.
Do you have any sick day tricks to lift your mood and speed recovery?
