It's that time of year in our offices when our editors are traveling to various fashion weeks all over the globe. It's really exciting, and personally, I love hearing what they have to report back on the latest trends. But since I'm a health and wellness editor, I'm also interested in how they stay healthy and ward off any illness during the monthlong marathon of shows and presentations and planes and trains and cabs.

You might think that's a weird thing to be obsessed with, but you know what, these people are traveling, working, and not really sleeping during peak cold and flu season. So to investigate, I asked some of our editors for their best immunity tips and how they stay healthy during this busy time. Even if you aren't attending a runway show anytime soon, you can use their tips in your everyday life. Germs don't discriminate.

"To avoid getting sick, I wash my hands every chance I get and am always sure to actually dress warmly (even if it doesn't look like it) in the colder season by wearing layers of heat tech." —Akhtarzad Eshaghpour

"I try to stay hydrated as much as I can. With all the running around, you can literally realize that you haven't had a sip of water in hours. So whenever water is available (sometimes they have at the shows), I snag one and chug it down." —Schuessler
