Dr. Feel Good
I always get sick at the most inconvenient times, like before I have to write a final paper or take an art history exam. This instance is no different as I've come down with something right when the weather is getting nice and springy. I've been staying in bed invalid style for the past week, renting numerous movies (FYI: Enchanted is my new favorite movie) and literally reading every magazine they sell in my local Gristedes. I've also developed an arsenal of feel-good products, which besides my antibiotics ensure that I will soon be on the road to recovery. Badger Headache Soother is a great organic alternative to popping a Tylenol. The balm has a fresh minty aroma and when rubbed on my forehead provides much needed relief. An added bonus is that it seems to have erased my forehead wrinkles thanks to its moisturizing consistency imparted by olive oil. My second product of choice is Altoids Ginger Mints. These spicy mints knock out nausea like nothing else and have a refreshing zing that perks me up. To eradicate my lack of sun induced pallor, I've taken to using copious amounts of Shu Uemura Glow On blush in Tranquil Pink to fake a sun-kissed peachy glow that looks entirely natural with a hint of shimmer. What remedies do you use when you're feeling under the weather?
