The Post Party Cure

hangover cure

Well it was a fun weekend (maybe a little too much fun). We celebrated my sister's bachelorette party with lots of wine and champagne ... and inevitably got everyone's favorite "party favor", the hangover. I spent Sunday morning cozy on the couch, but luckily my favorite remedies got me up and out of the house. 

clockwise from top left:
Sisley Eye Contour Mask – this pricey little tube is a serious miracle worker. Dab the tiniest amount around the entire eye area on nights when you need some extra moisture and look seriously refreshed the next morning!

Sparkling Water – I've tried pretty much every day-after drink you can – Gatorade, Pedialyte, hair of the dog – but nothing does the trick quite like sparkling water with a lemon wedge. 

Original Alka-Seltzer – It wasn't until Steve and I watched the characters of Madmen swear by Alka-Seltzer that we figured it was worth a try. Well there's good reason this effervescent cure has been around since the 30's! It. Works.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask – I've loved this product since high school, but after a long night out, nothing packs a minty punch like this cooling mask.

Burt's Bees Fabulously Fresh Body Wash – It's not easy to peel off the couch and shower, but this mint wash is seriously invigorating and snaps you back to normal.

Ginger Tea – Hangovers usually come with the added bonus of sour stomach. Sipping on ginger tea rids any lingering nausea and works as a nice wrap to a rough day.
