So you had too much drink last night. Your friend threw a wild party. That single vodka shot turned into three, and you woke up on your bed with a massive headache. You can’t remember anything that happened last night, but you know you have to get to work right now! Argh, you wished it was still the weekends. While you’re dealing with a pulsating headache, you’re thinking about how to cover up proof of last night’s hangover? Thankfully, here are the tips and tricks you need.
1. STEP INTO A COLD SHOWER
What better way to awaken the body than stepping into a cold shower? It increases your alertness and rejuvenates your body. So resist turning on the heater because hot showers will dehydrate you further. The next best thing is to embrace the cold droplets because you need to freshen up your body after a long night.
2. FRESHEN UP YOUR FACE
You probably look tired from the night before and it will definitely show on your face. The quickest way to freshen up your face is by resorting to your well-loved facial routine. For ladies, reach out to your trusty moisturiser for that fresh-out-of-shower look. For the gents, it’s time to shave up because you want to look presentable and put-together than not.
3. COVER UP WITH COSMETICS
Here’s where your makeup can be your little saviour. If you’re dealing with a red eye situation, relieve the redness by using eye drops. For those eye bags that you’re trying to tone down, use a concealer to work its magic. Not only will it hide the eye bags, it will enliven your eyes too.
4. WEAR BRIGHT CLOTHES
You might be tempted to throw on a dark outfit to match your mood, but why start your day as a Debbie Downer after the fun weekend you had? Wear a bright-coloured outfit for a change! Yes, pick out the blouse or shirt that puts a smile on your face. It’s the fastest way to feeling your best. Top it off with your favourite perfume, and you’re ready to take on your to-do list.
5. DRINK LOTS OF WATER
Whatever tricks that are thrown your way, always know how important it is to stay hydrated. And we’re talking about drinking lots of water. That’s because alcohol dehydrates you and it’s best to replace your body of lost fluids with lots of water. That means you need to skip coffee and tea because caffeine is known to be dehydrating too.
6. RELIEVE HEADACHE WITH ASPIRIN
If you’re dealing with the worst headache at the moment, take an aspirin to relieve the pain. Besides saving you from the pulsating headache, it also has anti-inflammatory properties to tone down the redness on your face and puffiness on your eyes. Just remember to take the recommended dosage and off you go!
You might be dealing with a terrible hangover from the night before, but do know that there are ways to cover up proof of last night’s hangover. From touching up your eyebags with concealer to drinking lots of water, these tips and tricks will have you ready to start your day in no time.
