Happy Sunday loves and welcome back to another Top 5. I've done a few of these in the past and today I thought I'd put a little spin on it by choosing a non beauty related topic - Hangovers.
Being a 20 year old student I've had my fair share of drunken nights, which means that I know how it feels to wake up with a massive headache not knowing when you got home, who you talked to and most importantly who you texted last night.
As luck would have it I'm currently sitting on my bed, drinking my third bottle of water and trying to get rid of a not so mild hangover so I thought why not share my tips on how to cure these bloody hangovers. So without further ado here are the things I like to do after a night out.
1. Take a shower or a nice long bath
Nothing makes you feel better, refreshed and more awake that a long shower or a hot bath.
2. Drink loads of water
I never wanted to believe this, but it's true. Drinking a load of water really helps. Due to the alcohol you body can be quite dehydrated which makes you feel tired and sometimes a bit dizzy.
3. Work out
Something I always do if I'm not feeling too poorly. Some of you might think I'm crazy but getting out of bed, going for a run and getting some fresh air always cures my hangover. If you can't motivate yourself to work out, go for a walk instead. The fresh air will work wonders.
4. Treat yourself to comfort foods
I don't know about you but I always crave some good old fast food after a night out. However if you're feeling really poorly I wouldn't recommend eating a burger.
5. Hang out with a friend
Preferably the one you went out with. He or she most likely feels just as dizzy and bad as you do, so why not try to cure the hangover together? You could go for a meal, work out together or just hang out and have a chat about last night's events. I mean what would a night out be without a little gossip the day after.
6. (Sorry I cheated) Stay in bed, watch a movie, listen to music and sleep it off
I'm sure most of us had at least one of these days when you had one (or maybe two) too many the night before and just feel like crap. All you want to do is stay in bed, watch a movie or a bunch of YouTube videos and basically do nothing. If that's the case all I can say is - go ahead! Trust me I've had my fair share of these kind of days and let me tell you there is nothing worse than someone dragging you out of bed and pretty much forcing you to do stuff.
These are the things that work best for me. Obviously everybody is different and there is a lot more you could try. What are the things you do after a night out? xo, Marie
