I created this Use Zicam® to shorten a cold when it first starts post as part of a #sponsored series with Socialstars and Zicam®; all opinions are my own. #ZicamCrowd
It’s that time of year in FL
It’s the time when my front door that used to just open and close like any other becomes a revolving door. Friends and family all dealing with the freezing cold up north want to escape to Florida, and since there are two of us in a three bedroom house only 5 minutes from the beach (and a pool on our lanai) we know that winter means spending our time as hosts. While I love seeing them all, there is no time for a cold. Our friends are counting on us.
Of course, life never goes as planned, and with my sister-in-law arriving this week, Mr. S caught a cold. Thankfully, we were prepared with Zicam® Cold Remedy ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals so that he could nip that cold in the bud and use Zicam® to shorten that cold when it first starts so he can get back to feeling his old self and play host, tourist and purveyor of fun times. I want to virtually hug Zicam® for sending me that much needed help so that we weren’t stuck on the couch with a box of Kleenex and daytime TV the entire time we had guests.
Because I travel so often
I also know that sitting on a plane for 3, 4, or 5 hours means that you’re breathing in everyone elses germs. I can’t tell you the times that I’ve had a friend leave her house feeling great, and start sniffling within a day or two after arriving. I’ve become pro-active. Not only do I put fresh sheets on the bed and leave magazines on the nightstand in the guest room, but I also make sure that along with the toothpaste and shampoo in the bathroom, that I also leave a supply of Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals just in case. My friends love to have a homeopathic way to shorten the duration of a cold when taken at the first sign. They come here to sit on the beach, dine on fresh seafood overlooking the ocean and relaxing, not sit around coughing and sneezing. My friends know that Zicam® products are a great way to get your better back™, faster!
Easy to use
Each box of Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals contains 18 convenient, individually-dosed packets that are great for on-the-go. They just melt in your mouth without water. The refreshing Berry Lemonade flavor goes down easily and Mr. S used it until his symptoms completely subsided (use as directed on the package). You simply tear open the packet and pour it right on your tongue.
Stock up BEFORE you get a cold
I like having a box of Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals in the house BEFORE I start feeling a cold coming on, that way I can start using it immediately. You can pick it up at major food, drug and mass merchandise retailers (and it’s very affordable).
