11/18Opt for vitamins

Opt for vitamins

One of the most essential things your body needs when you're hungover is vitamins. If you have multivitamin supplements handy, we suggest you pop one of those but if you don't, the easiest thing you could do is drink some orange juice for that Vitamin C.


12/18Take a shower

Take a shower

Once you've slept for as long as possible, the next best thing to do is to take a shower. While the sleep will take care of the tiredness, the shower will help refresh you and will wake up all your senses. Try to slightly alternate between cold and hot water to help drive away any tiredness left in your body.


13/18Tomato juice

Tomato juice

We know this doesn't sound all that appetizing but it does work wonders in curing that hangover. Tomatoes are naturally rich in fructose which can help metabolise all that alcohol much more quickly. So either drink it in juice form of try making soup if you fancy that instead.


14/18Prickly pear

Prickly pear

Studies have shown that extract from this fruit can be used on hangovers to impressive effect. It’s been found to reduce nausea, dizziness, and headaches. If you want to try it out, look for a supplement called Hovenia Dulcis extract.


15/18Artichoke extract

Artichoke extract

Another extract to try is Artichoke. This supplement stimulates bile production and can help to relieve bloating and other symptoms of indigestion associated with alcohol consumption.


16/18Avoid caffeine

Avoid caffeine

A weak cup of coffee may be okay, but an entire pot will only dehydrate you more and it may make your headache worse. This is the opposite of what you want right now. Even though it is tempting to grab a cup to wake up, it is not the best idea.


17/18Fill up the morning after

Fill up the morning after

Eat breakfast. Electrolytes in food help replenish a dehydrated system and get calories back into your body. But go easy. While a greasy meal before drinking may help, a hangover needs foods that are easy to digest, like toast and cereal. Some believe that eating burnt toast will help, with the charred carbon crust filtering out impurities much like a carbon water filter. But there’s no research to back it up.


18/18Go back to bed

Go back to bed

A hangover isn't caused by lack of sleep, but that makes it worse. Take a long nap the day after: It’s the body’s way of healing itself.
