After a night of drinking, the next morning is always rough. If you’re feeling the pain from your fun last night, here’s our recommended list of hangover products and morning after aids. As always, we advise you to drink responsibly and drink water before calling it quits for the night.
- After a long night, nothing feels better than sleeping it off in a dark room. Black out blinds (or shades) now come in a variety of colors and patterns, and can transform your room in to a deep, calm oasis until you’re ready to face the real world.
- Often seen strewn around the house after hospital visits, hospital-grade water jugs are perfect for the day after. Usually packing an impressive 32 ounces, these jugs are ideal for hangovers–they have secure lids and strong, flexible straws to make sipping in bed easy.
- Try to get out and exercise, even if it’s just a walk around the block. Try to shower first, preferably with products that smell clean and not too strong–lemon body wash is a good choice, but maybe skip the vanilla sugar scrub.
- If you’re able to, mix yourself another drink. If you’re not able to, ask a friend to mix one for you. Try our Bloody Scot, Cascade Cool-Aid, or chill out with cucumber vodka–who says hair of the dog doesn’t count among hangover products!?
- If the sayings are true, gulping down a Gatorade can seriously improve your outlook. Some say the purple flavor, some say red.
- Greasy food can make a world of difference. Fry up some bacon and a couple eggs to eat over toast. Maybe throw some Hangover Tonic on top for a spicy kick.
- Serve up some generous helpings of carbs. Potatoes, bread, chips and dip, pretzels, or quesadillas.
- Binge watch a little Netflix, with the contrast way down and the volume just over a mumble. Let the dulcet tones of Mulder and Scully lull you to sleep, or rewatch some childhood favorites (pssst–Animaniacs was just added this month).
- Wrap up in your comfiest sweatshirt–don’t worry, we’ve got your new favorite right here.
- Pop some painkillers according to the dosage, just to take the edge off that headache.
