It’s no secret that icky symptoms like to sneak up on anyone and everyone come winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to greet them warmly. Permission to walk away from germs without warning, granted.

        1. Keep It Clean
          Not to sound paranoid, but bacteria is EVERYWHERE. Sure, you can’t avoid germs 24/7, but you can make a habit out of cleaning the most obvious areas (countertops, cubicles, tables) and unsuspecting objects (phones, keyboards, doorknobs) at least once a week. 

        2. Bust a Move
          Not a gym person? No problem; there are a million other ways to get your blood flowing. Staying physically fit enhances your immune system AKA helps keep your body happy and healthy. So, take a walk around the block. Try a free at-home workout via YouTube. Or traverse a trail you’ve never conquered before in the name of wellness. 

        3. Get Some Sleep
          Words of wisdom: don’t preceed your sweet dreams with a nightcap and Instagram scroll. These habits may be tempting, but they’re also major REM disrupters, i.e. the most recuperative stage of slumber. Instead, try a healthier routine; layer on our anti-aging Restoring Beauty Sleep Mask and substitute screens with a good ol’ fashioned book. 

        4. Eat Right
          Believe it or not, your mom wasn’t trying to torture you when she put spinach and broccoli on your plate as a child. Much like exercise, these green foods will turn you into a lean, mean, germ-fighting machine, thanks to their immune system boosting powers.

        5. Leave Your Face Alone
          We’re going to let you in on a secret—your face doesn’t appreciate dirty hands. Why? Your nose and eyes are actually the most common places for germs to enter your body. So next time you’re on the go and need to freshen up, grab our Clean AF Facial Cleansing Wipes. They’ll wipe dirt, makeup, and grime away in under a minute, while keeping your mitts out of the equation.

        6. Drink Up
          You’ve heard it before, but we’ll tell you again… Drinking water is ultra important. Intake suggestions vary, but on average women should aim to sip nine cups of water a day. It may seem like a lot, but honestly, this action item is probably the easiest on our list. You can remove toxins from your body for literally $0 per day.  

The common cold? We don’t know her.
