Hangovers, at some point in your life you are going to get one unless you never touch a drop of alcohol and then props to you for avoiding quite possibly one of the worst feelings in the world. I like a good Gin+Tonic and sometimes I drink a few too many and wake up feeling like i’m on the brink of death so I have come up with a few products and tips to get over the hangover.
Now first if you have to get up and go to work on a hangover then the only tips I can give you are: have a shower it will wake you up and shake that ‘i’m dying’ feeling off you a little, drink a lot of water and pop a pain killer or two.
However if you have a whole day to recover first thing is sleep, sleep solves everything. Sleep as long as you can and then once you are awake re-hydrate yourself with water. I know it can sometimes be a boring drink but it will do you more good than the caffeine your body might be craving.
Once you have re-hydrated run yourself a bath, because you probably slept in your clothes and left all your make-up on so its now time to clean up. I am currently loving the Original Source Shower Gel in Vanilla and Raspberry, its super sweet and doesn’t dry your skin out.
My skin always hates me after a heavy night out but I have three products which will get your skin back to its normal glow. The No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask which after 10 mins makes your skin hydrated and super soft after washing this off liberally apply No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry/Very Dry Skin which adds all the moisture back into your skin without leaving it feeling greasy and then under your eyes dab a bit of the rich Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream which instantly gets to work at smoothing and plumping the delicate under eye area.
How do you get over hangovers?

Although I love a good budget buy there are a few products out there which are worth spending that extra bit of cash on.
Clinique High Impact Mascara – £17.00
I have raved about this product for absolutely ages but its everything I could want from a mascara, length, volume, long lasting and easy to remove at the end of the day. It doesn’t smudge or clump and I think that £17.00 for such a fantastic product is really good value for money.
No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask – £12.50
Now some people wouldn’t class this as expensive but I have to say i’m not one for spending out on skin care but this hydrating mask works wonders on my dry skin. It makes your skin smoother, softer and moisturised for days after you’ve applied it.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – £31.00
Sheer Glow is a gorgeous medium coverage foundation that helps smooth out skin tone, evens out skin tone and gives a healthy glow to the skin as well as having a long lasting power. Now £31.00 is a lot for a foundation but this is worth every penny – it’s a lifesaver for us dry skin girls.
Illamasqua Skin Base – £32.00
Again a pretty hefty price tag but a little bit of this goes a very long way. Another medium coverage foundation which has an amazing lasting power and great wearability. Skin base has an amazing range of shades and works for all skin types.
Clinique Chubby Stick – £17.00
£17.00 for what is a fancy tinted lip balm sounds ridiculous but these are the original and the best. Super moisturising, non-sticky and with just the right amount of pigment these are the perfect on the go lip colour. You can keep on applying throughout the day and not have to deal with buildup.
What products do you think are worth spending more on?
