Everyone has a patented hangover cure but mine is still probably better because it’s a multi-pronged attack consisting of many not terrible components.

  1. Slowly get out of bed.  You probably feel like you’re in a boat – unless you are actually on a boat, you are not on a boat.  Trust me.
  2. Don’t turn any unnecessary lights on, unless you like searing eye pain.
  3. Drink some water, followed by coffee, followed by juice.  The water hydrates you, the coffee helps your brain reestablish its electrical connections, and the juice helps to bring up your blood sugar.
  4. Nibble on something bread-y.  Bread works.  Anything to soak up the excess nastiness in your stomach and colon.  My personal choice:  Kix without milk.
  5. Hi!  Just checking to see if you’re still reading or just skimming at this point.  Please continue.
  6. Take a shower with Aveda Rosemary Mint everything (body wash, shampoo, conditioner).  When you get out, use the Aveda Rosemary Mint body lotion.  If that doesn’t refresh and revive you, nothing will.
  7. Put on some sweats.  The restrictive nature of jeans will only hurt you at this point.
  8. Drink a Vitamin Water.
  9. Take a nap.
  10. Voila!  Fresh as a daisy.

If this doesn’t work for you, don’t get that drunk again.  This is the most comprehensive hangover attack cure ever and if your hangovers are that bad, you might need to evaluate what led you to drink that much in the first place.  Is it because of a bad breakup?  A bad relationship?  Does your boss hate you?  Do they still force you to use Internet Explorer at work?  Until those things are fixed, no amount of Aveda products will be able to help you (although they can’t hurt – just saying).
