Big night last night? Don't worry, we've got you. Here are the best wellness hangover cures, from recharging bath sets to soothing skincare
words Sophie Lou Wilson
It's the morning after the night before. That familiar dread sets in as you peel your face away from the pillow. Yes, whether you like it or not, today will be a hangover day. You might be feeling sick/headachey/anxious right now, but hangover days can be a chance to let your body rest and indulge in some gentle self-care. Hangover tips, tricks and hacks abound – McDonald's delivery served with a Coke the size of your head, cheeky hair of the dog or sweating it out at the gym (well done, we all wish we were you.)
Checking your bank balance the day after a night out is a recipe for hangxiety, especially if you vaguely remember buying all those people you just met a whole round of tequila shots (hey, we’ve all been there.) So, we've selected some healthy and indulgent wellness products to help ease your hangover that won’t break the bank.
Whether you're recovering from your work Christmas party or you had one too many drinks with a friend, these revitalising products can help you strengthen your immunity and bid goodbye to those hangovers. Build them into your routine to improve your overall health and wellness so boozy nights won't throw you off course. It's all about balance, after all. As Gwyneth Paltrow once wisely said, "It's what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu." And she was so real for that.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best wellness-based hangover cures, from multivitamins to soothing skincare.
PICK ME UP
The Pick Me Up Aromatherapy Roll On Set
Whether you've resigned yourself to a duvet day or you actually have to get up and go about your busy day, reach for some roll-on essential oil for a pick me up on-the-go. Clarity Blend's Pick Me Up Aromatherapy Roll On Set is designed to help support your overall wellbeing, improving your sleep, anxiety, energy and creativity. Just roll these soothing, uplifting oils on your pulse points at the wrists and temples to reduce headaches and feel revived.
REST AND RECHARGE
Recharge Bath Set
Recharge your weary mind and body with this bath set from Bave, featuring Dead Sea Bath Salt and an essential oil-infused bath soak. Soaking in a hot bath can help rid your body of any toxins after a heavy night. Careful not to overdo it, though. Make sure you drink a cold glass of water so you don't dehydrate and pay attention when getting out of the bath in case you feel faint. Other than that, soak away while listening to your favourite calming music or podcast. Lush.
YOU GLOW GIRL
Pineapple Enzyme Peel Mask
You might have been glowing last night, but over time alcohol can dehydrate skin, leaving it looking dull and grey. To try and balance out some of the negative effects boozing can have on your skin, we recommend Mallows Beauty's Pineapple and Mango Enzyme Mask. Its unique vegan formula combines antioxidants and exfoliating qualities to brighten and purify skin. So treat yourself to a refreshing face mask on your next hangover day. We promise you can get straight back into bed afterwards.
Feel's multivitamins combine more than 10 ingredients to make you feel good. Pop 2-3 per day to support your immune system, maintain healthy skin, hair and nails and reduce tiredness and fatigue. They're gentle on your stomach and fill nutritional gaps in your diet, helpful if you've been living off chips and beer this weekend.
GOLDEN SHROOMS - Energy & Immune Magic
If you've been partying hard lately, it's going to take its toll on your physical health. 'Fresher's Flu' has its very own name for a reason. We can't promise this mushroom formula will stop you from catching the infamous ailment that plagues 18-year-olds up and down the country each autumn, but at least you'll be in with a fighting chance.
THE MORNING AFTER
The Morning After the Night Before Faace Kit
You might be tired, but your skin doesn't have to be. This mask and cleanser bundle is designed with hangovers in mind. It revitalises dull, dehydrated skin. You can even leave the mask on your skin if you're too tired to take it off, so you don't even have to leave your bed to treat your skin to some TLC.
Peach Flamingo Flower with a Chalk Regent Pot
Sometimes when you're feeling sorry for yourself, all you need is to return to nature. We're not suggesting you drag yourself out for a long hike (although this can be a great hangover cure if you're up to it), but adding a houseplant to your space can instantly brighten a dark room and help purify the air to reduce headache symptoms. Isn't nature wonderful?
Slide It! Water-based Pleasure Lube
Sometimes the best hangover cure is as simple as having a wank. WooWoo's water-based pleasure lube is dermatologically tested and cruelty free, so just massage a few drops into the skin for a sexy time with yourself or someone else. Your duvet day just got a lot more fun.
