Summer Hangovers

With summer usually comes a party, or two, and chances are there will be alcohol involved. Here are some tips from beauty expert Eva Scrivo on how to balance your drinking.

---

1. Consume one glass of water for every alcoholic beverage.

2. Eat a high protein and high fat snack before bed time (yes, I said "high fat," it's not a typo). I like natural peanut butter on whole grain toast.

3. Also before bed, take a B vitamin supplement which tends to get depleted when consuming alcohol.

4. The next morning drink a glass of coconut water which contains potassium and electrolites to help the body rehydrate. Also apply a hydrating mask to your face.

5. Mid-day a fresh vegetable juice is a great pick-me-up.

I try to do the beer/water alternating routine.

Just started using natural peanut butter....atop a whole grain Eggo waffle.

Coconut water...riiiiight, I have that in my pantry

"fresh" vegetable juice ??....a V8 would work right ?

Yeah, I said the same thing about the coconut water :)

I think V8 is close enough.
