9 Tips to Look Pretty and Perky when You're Sick ...


While I canโ€™t really help you with how to look sick so you can avoid work, I can surely show you how to look pretty when sick!

The fall and winter are nice and all, but Iโ€™m not such a big fan of runny noses and sneezing till the cows come home.

But, there are some tricks that can help you look much better than you feel.2

So break out your beauty products for a beauty remedy to cure your fall and winter woes!

1. Moisturize

One of the basic principles in how to look pretty when sick is to make sure youโ€™re still properly caring for your skin.

I know itโ€™s easy to think that being sick is a pass to slack on personal care but if you want to look healthy, start with your skin.

Medication, the dry air and a number of other things can dry out skin so moisturize your skin with a gentle moisturizer that wonโ€™t further irritate your skin.

2. Hydrate

Hydrate yourself and moisturize skin from the inside by filling up with lots of water and soothing hot herbal tea instead of coffee.

You might not feel like drinking anything but being dehydrated wonโ€™t help you get better any faster and it certainly wonโ€™t help you appear more alert or healthy!

3. Blush

One product you definitely donโ€™t want to forget when doing makeup for sick days is blush.

Most times when we get sick, our faces lose color and we tend to look very pale.

If you find yourself in this situation, break out your favorite blush, bronzer or combine the two to give dull skin some oomph!

If your skin is dry, try a cream blush for a healthy glow!

4. Get the Red out

Another tip on how to look pretty when sick is to use eye drops to alleviate dry and red eyes.

Again, the weather and medication can dry out our eyes and make us drowsy.

Nothing says sick and tired like bloodshot eyes so keep some eye drops handy to keep your eyes moist, clear and sparkly!
