This last week I have found myself in the unfortunate position of having to do hospital visiting. As anyone who’s ever done it will know, visiting a relative can be a pretty tiring experience especially if the hospital isn’t on your doorstep (the one I’ve been visiting is 15 miles away).
By the time I got back in the evening I looked about ten years older and coupled with a lack of proper sleep and a diet that’s all over the shop (too many hospital café sausage rolls!) I’m not exactly looking or feeling my best.
So, in situations like this I call upon my fatigue fighters – a few trusty products designed to give skin a wake up call and perk up the complexion. Right now my A-Team consists of Ole Henriksen’s Walnut Complexion Scrub which is the perfect way to invigorate tired, grey-looking skin, Molton Brown’s Power-Boost Zinc Anti-Fatigue Hydrator (I love MB moisturisers and this one contains light-reflecting particles to cheat you into looking better than you are) and, finally, for when the dark circles get really bad, my Menaji Camo Camouflage Stick.
Why do I go to these lengths? Well, if you’re visiting someone in hospital I reckon the last thing they want to see is someone looking stressed, tired and worried too. So in the just the same way that the patient has a crack team of people making them feel better I have my crack team making me look better!
Here’s to looking half-decent then!
