Quick Tips for Fighting the Flu

It's that time again…the dreaded flu season-and this year it is striking extra hard. From the sniffles to high fever, masses of people are suffering from common cold symptoms and those of influenza. That being said, all of our immune systems are going to need a lot of TLC to fend off germs and viruses. YouBeauty.com wellness expert, Dr. Michael Roizen, gives some simple tricks and products to fight off the flu:

Wash your hands! This is probably the single most important thing you can do to avoid catching the flu. Be sure to constantly wash your hands to rid them of the germs that may cause you to get sick. We suggest using Bath & Body Works Antibacterial Deep Foaming Hand Soap, not only will it kill off powerful germs, the variety of fragrances all smell delish!

Carry an antibacterial sanitizer in your bag! Throughout the day, we tend to touch a lot of things that other people have. Play it smart and keep Bath & Body Works Anti-Bacterial PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel in your bag so you can de-germ as often as possible. One little squirt will kill over 99.9% of germs!

Be Proactive. If you are showing flu-like symptoms, don't wait! Visit your doctor immediately and start taking medicine as soon as possible. If caught in the early stages, you may be able to avoid the flu before it fully strikes. For temporary relief of flu-like symptoms try Boiron Oscillococcinum Flu Remedy.

Stay healthy!
