5 Tips to Waltz Through a Hangover (at Work)

Getting hammered on a weeknight is cool as long as you’ve got the title of a princess but not when you’ve got a meeting bright and early. 

But there are times when you can’t help it — like your BFFs birthday which by the way is on a Wednesday (and you don’t have to pay for the endless rounds of shots). And you’ve no idea how the sun is already out and your alarm bell is shrieking like crazy. 

How do you drag your ass to work without getting fired?

Here are five tried and tested secret tips to fake feeling 100 — when you’re absolutely not.

 

1. Befriend Faint Lights

You’re not Kim K, so you can’t walk into work with your sunglasses on and expect everyone to find it usual. 

Reduce the brightness of all your electronic devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops. And if you still find yourself struggling, invest in a pair of Delic Gray glasses that protects your eyes from blue lights.

 

2. Clear the Evidence

Stay low on socials unless you want your boss and colleagues to find out how many rounds of shots you actually did (and the embarrassing things you and the girls did later on). 

Sharing stories with close friends ensures not getting called out at work the next day.

 

3. Handy Hangover Kit

Stash a tiny hangover kit with all the essentials – mints, painkillers, headphones and a couple of wipes to help you stay on top of your game.

 

4. Eggie Brekkie

What’s the best hack to help your body remove liquor from your body?

Include eggs in your breakfast as it helps in producing glutathione which is an antioxidant that helps in speeding up the process of removing liquor from your body.

 

5. De-puff

According to Ama Kwarteng, beauty assistant at Cosmo, use a jade roller first thing in the morning to decrease puffiness. 

Toss it in the freezer before swiftly rolling it up and down your face to increase blood circulation and at least you look better than you feel.
