5 Ways To Look Less Hungover


The dreaded hangover….we’ve all been! Luckily there are ways to fight it beyond sunglasses and Advil.  Nutritionist Steve Macari recently shared his hangover cheat sheet with Harpers Bazaar and the tips are pretty darn good! My 5 favorite:

​Before going to bed:

Eat a piece of fruit that’s high in fructose, like an apple, grapes or watermelon. “Fructose is a type of sugar that helps your liver detoxify alcohol more efficiently, meaning less of a hangover,” says Macari.

Take a vitamin B1 supplement. “This essential vitamin gets depleted rapidly when you drink,” says Macari.

Remove your makeup and apply an overnight mask. Our pick: Olay Regenerist Luminous Sleeping Gel Mask—vitamin B3 and mulberry extract brighten, hydrate and keep puffiness at bay.

Put your eye cream and moisturizer in the fridge for cool refreshment in the morning.

And when you wake up drink a combination of 8 oz. water, 4 oz. coconut water, 4 oz. orange juice and a pinch of sea salt.

Read the full hangover cheat sheet article right this way.

Superfood Pitaya Margarita

This is a guest post from Sam Negrin | creator and EIC of AllGoodHealth.net and editorial manager of LEAFtv

There are few things more enjoyable than a refreshing cocktail on a sunny summer day. But as you might know, alcohol and mixed cocktails can include hundreds (sometimes thousands) of empty calories per drink! Empty calories simply means food or drink that has zero nutritional value, they do nothing for our well-being (except maybe give us a little buzz).

Alas, there are ways to add some nutritional value to our libations; besides the single glass of antioxidant-rich red wine. Introducing the Superfood Pitaya Margarita: Pitaya is the exotic fruit of the cactus plant commonly found in Central America and Southeast Asia, also known as Dragon Fruit. It’s extremely rich in antioxidants, vitamin c, magnesium, fiber, vitamin b and omega-3 fats (from the seeds). All of these nutritional components combined make this fruit an amazing beauty-enhancing ingredient – glowing skin, strong hair and bones.

This unique, nutrient-dense and low-calorie margarita is the perfect accompaniment to your chips and guac this weekend. Not to mention, it’s the most beautiful pink insta-worthy color! Happy summer!

Here’s how you make it:

 
Ingredients: (serves one)
3 oz silver tequila
Splash of orange juice
Lime wedge
Ice
Salt & cayenne to rim glass, optional

Instructions:
1. If rimming the glass: first pour 2/3 salt and 1/3 cayenne onto a plate, then slide lime wedge around the rim and turn cup over to dip into salt/cayenne mixture
2. Add everything to your cocktail shaker, but the ice, and shake! (you might need to let the smoothie pack de-frost for a few minutes)
3. Add ice to your glass, pour cocktail mixture over
4. ENJOY!

Note: You can find Pitaya Plus smoothie packs in the freezer section of most grocery stores. If you whip this up, share on insta tagging @gerihirsch and @allgoodhealth!

Line To Love: Giejo Swimwear

Say hello to another swimwear line to love: Giejo.

Born out of frustration for the lack of fashion-forward prints and inspired cuts, Gabby Sabharwal designed and produced a mix-and-match collection of custom swimsuits to fit her personal style of effortlessly combining prints, colors and patterns. Knowing she wasn’t alone, Gabby immersed herself in the world around her gathering feedback from friends about their ideal swimsuit shapes and then looked to her closet for inspiration to artfully match bold patterns. The resut? Interchangeable and multi-functional swim separates featuring versatile prints and figure-flattering silhouettes that can be mixed and matched for a unique look.

I for one am obsessed with these suits. They’re incredibly flattering. Shop them here or here (there’s a few on sale).
