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.
