5 WAYS to... DISGUISE A SUMMER PARTY HANGOVER
What a weekend – boozy BBQS and Pimm’s in the park. But now it’s Monday and you need to hide the hangover ASAP…
1 Eat through the Pain (if You Can) If you can look at a piece of toast without throwing up, it’s a good start. If you can stomach a piece of toast without throwing up, great news. Eggs actually help break down the toxins in alcohol, while porridge is low-gi so will raise your blood sugar slowly, giving you enough energy to carry on with your day.
2 hydrate – Everywhere isn’t it annoying when you accidentally drink three bottles of wine? downing loads of water is a must, but hydrating your face is also essential. wearing a mask to work isn’t an option, so slather on a rich moisturiser like Kiehl’s Centalla recovery Salve, £40, and skip the coffee – it may wake you up but it’ll soon bring you crashing down.
3 distractions are KEY Take advice from Alexa Chung, who always opts for a statement red lipstick whenever she’s feeling a little worse for wear. Trust us, they won’t be looking at your eye bags when you’re working a bright lip. No one need know what you were up to, um, five hours ago...
4 Eliminate Baggage those tired, bleary eyes are a huge giveaway of a late night, so de-puff peepers with Elemis Pro-collagen hydra-gel Eye masks, £47.50. the best bit? they work super-fast, so just stick them on while you’re getting dressed for work. genius.
5 Sweat it out It’s been proven many times that getting up and moving has a drastic effect on hangovers. It won’t cure them, but working out causes us to release endorphins, which make us feel better, erasing the memory of our hazy night. Basically, get up and get out!
