We’re not really all that far into the hideousness that is winter and already I’m wishing I could just crawl under my duvet until October. I am not a winter baby. In my book, winter is pooh. It’s also cold and flu season but I plan to skip out on that this season (I hope) by
not making out with random boys at clubs beefing up my immune system with a healthy lifestyle and popping copious amounts of vitamin C.
Anyway, I was thrilled when Clicks sent me a little ‘fight the flu bug’ hamper:
I haven’t tried Viral Eeze yet but know people who swear by it. As for the vitamin C, well I’d actually just bought that exact tub a week before receiving Clicks’ pakkie. I liked that it contained 100 500mg tablets for just R54,99. That’s great value in that it works out to less than R20 per month.
Aside from possibly helping to lessen the severity and length of flu symptoms, vitamin C has loads of beauty benefits. For one, it’s a potent antioxidant and is essential to the production of collagen. In fact, several studies have found that women who take vitamin C internally tend to have younger-looking skin than those who have a lower intake. So ja… vitamin C is your friend.
I’m also quite impressed with this guy:
It comes with 20 effervescent vapour tablets and a few disposable cups. You fill the cup with boiling water, pop in the tab and inhale the vapours to open up your nose. Clever, right?! I just love stuff like that! Still, here’s hoping I don’t end up having to use it…
