HOW NOT TO LOOK SICK (YES, EVEN WHEN YOU ARE SNIFFLING AWAY)

Red, watery eyes, runny nose, blotchy skin and chapped lips… having a cold or the flu isn’t very nice. It’s not just that you feel awful but you don’t look too pretty either. But there’s no need to let a nasty chill wreak havoc with your looks (or your plans). Master these easy beauty tricks and face the world looking terrific, despite the sniffles.

Hide a cold #1: Glow of health
If the winter chills have left your complexion looking tired and pasty, use a gentle cleansing scrub to rev up circulation and make skin glow. Follow with a hydrating, vitamin-rich moisturiser, like Dermalogica’s Multivitamin Power Concentrate, to soothe soreness around the nose.

Pale, sick faces sometimes need a bit of artificial health pumped into them – a sweep of blush will make you look sprightly and healthy.

Hide a cold #2: Get rid of the red
Red and blotchy skin is a sure sign of an unhappy immune system. Use products that counter the redness, like Smashbox’s Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer, then damp-sponge on a sheer liquid foundation to even out the skin tone.

Best Exercises to Get your Body a Perfect Shape

Interval Training – also known as High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT, interval training is a way of combining slow and fast repetitions of a particular exercise, for several different benefits. Interval training is good for building stamina, and is also an exercise which is useful cardio – it is used because it functions as a very useful way to combine health benefits. Interval training is a form of exercise where you work quickly to get your heart rate up and your breathing high, and then use the times in between the high speeds to cool down, and allow your body to relax a little.

Walking – as the Kinobody program review attests, walking is very useful exercise. It can be done by anybody, in any stage of health or life (though some people will obviously need some adjustments made for their own particular circumstances). Walking is surprisingly good exercise, and it is something which exercises more of the body than most people know. It is something that combines low-impact exercise with cardio (if you walk fast enough), and it requires no special equipment, so it is ideal for somebody who is just starting on their own fitness journey.
