    So, have you had the flu yet? It seems as though everyone and their mama is going through it in one form or another, and it's not a pretty sight. Between the weights at the gym (or that unassuming yoga mat), public transportation, or heck, even your desk — it seems inevitable that there will be a couple of days when you'll be down and out this season. While we can't assist you with getting over the chills and sniffles any sooner, we can help to keep you looking your best no matter what pesky germs temporarily plague your world.

    The flu shows its ugly face in the form of puffy, bloodshot eyes, lackluster complexion, a raw, red nose, dry skin, and chapped lips. We're not vain, but that isn't exactly Instagram-worthy. Since there are only so many sick days one can take, we've pulled together 12 flutastic products to help you feel a bit better about your appearance — even if you feel like you're knocking on death's door.

    Along with national brands like C.O. Bigelow's incredible Cold and Flu Soak, we sourced handmade prods from entrepreneurial locals, including two honey co-ops, a makeup artist's miracle powder, and amazing bath and body products from crafty Chicago gals who know their ingredients. Go grab some chicken soup and click through to see our ultimate guide for the sick girl. Get well soon, dear reader.
