    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.

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.
