Got a cold? Be kind to your nose! (N really VR)

Cold and flu season is upon us again, with the chapped, sore nose that so often goes with it. But there is hope! You don't have to shell out for expensive "lotion" tissues...just make sure to clean the skin of your nose with a clean, damp tissue after blowing. (Well maybe not every single time, which isn't always doable, but often.) It's the residual mucus that remains on the skin that actually dries out and burns the skin, not the rubbing. I learned this from a friend who's a chemical engineer, and tho I seldom catch cold since I returned to vegetaria, I've tried it more than once and it works.

And remember, cold germs so often enter the body thru the mucus membranes of the eyes and mouth, so wash your hands--a Lot--and try not to rub your eyes.
