Whether it’s a routine operation or an unexpected visit, not many of us can say we actually enjoy being in hospital. Although we’re huge fans of the NHS, the food is usually fairly grim, wards are either too hot or too cold and being around all of those other ill people can feel a bit oppressive! Never fear though, Pure Beauty have some fabulous suggestions of products that you can pack in your hospital bag which will make life a little more bearable.
Hospital wards are notoriously too warm and sitting around in the heat all day can make you feel totally dried out. Using a good moisturiser can make all the difference and this light hydrating cream from Decleor is suitable for all skin types, allowing you to put back all of the lost hydration and avoid that tight, itchy dry skin feeling.
Keeping your hands clean when in hospital is really important because you don’t want to be picking up any additional germs, so you’ll probably be washing your hands and using drying alcohol gels more than usual. Keep some of this Dermalogica hand treatment on your bedside table and use it to stop your hands from becoming dry and cracking.
If you’re in hospital for any length of time, keeping yourself sane is half of the battle towards healing, which means being able to keep up with normal rituals like having a nice bath or shower and wearing clean PJs! Stick some of this luxurious, relaxing body wash in your bag to help you forget that you’re using a hospital bathroom and not your own.
For many of us, being unable to wear make up whilst in hospital can really add to feelings of being under the weather – this can be even worse if you’re in having a baby and people want to take pictures of you with a bare face after giving birth! This tint from Dermalogica gives a wash of colour and a splash of moisture, making you look and feel more healthy and less washed out.
Being in hospital isn’t always bad – being confined to a bed sometimes means that you have no choice but to catch up on some sleep, read, binge-watch Netflix, and it can be the perfect opportunity for a bit of pampering too! Why not turn your hospital stay into something positive by treating your face with a mask, such as this one from Decleor which adds immediate radiance to the skin – you’ll come out of hospital looking better than before you went in!
