When you’re down with the flu and have a temperature, addressing your skin’s beauty needs is usually the last thing you want to deal with. You just want to cover yourself with a blanket and sleep the pain away, for crying out loud! Here us out, however. This skincare hack might just make things better.
Over at the Asian Beauty Reddit, user ilith was feeling like death, running a high fever, and just about had it with the usual remedies. Then, a brilliant idea crossed her mind:
"I have sheet masks in the fridge!
It was glorious. I double-fisted of course and got more than an hour of cooling relief as the water evaporated slowly. I do it now every 6-8 hour and I plan to do this until I get the fever under 100 F (37.78 C)."
Double fisting, at least when it comes to this Reddit, either refers to using two sheet masks consecutively, or using both eye and face masks at once. More importantly, ilith loved the results! Not only did her skin look great, the cool sheet mask managed to bring her temperature down.
Definitely trying this out the next time we’re feeling under the weather!
