We all know New Year’s Eve is right around the corner and that usually drinking champagne or liquor comes with that. But don’t dread the imminent hangover too soon – here are five tips for how to perk yourself up after a night of drinking:
1. Steam clean. Use clean, moist and steamy towels to bathe your face –
alcohol is a diuretic, so replenishing your skin’s moisture is essential
2. Cucumber slices on your eyes. Bags respond beautifully to this little
trick – put slices on your eyes and let nature do the work
5. Green tea – the real deal. A cup of coffee may help sober you up, but a
cup of green tea will help your body fight the lowered resistance that
comes with drinking!
Some of the less intelligent choices for curing your hangover include, eating a heavy meal (sometimes touted as a way to absorb the alcohol) and taking a pain reliever that contains acetaminophen (like Tylenol), because it can harm your liver. From a beauty standpoint, it’s really best to do the first 5, then sleep. And of course, no “hair of the dog that bit you“, please…it’s the worst thing for a hangover.
