This post talks about hangover tips while you’re on vacation. I posted Instagram of all the things that helped me beat the hangover while I was at Cab, so I wanted to post it on the blog so you always have a resource to go back to.
These are tips from a dream hangover. Things you can easily focus on your life or your vacation.
When we went to Cabo, I told myself to let go and have some fun. That’s exactly what I did. But I also wanted to make sure I was on top of the hangover, so I didn’t spend the whole vacation feeling sluggish.
I can honestly tell you that following these tips I was only hungover once. ONCE !! I mean, thank god HOT MESS ICE ROLLER.
How to avoid a hangover:
♡ Gangster chic electrolytes
Ingrid, the founder of the Gangster Chic brand, is one of my best friends and such a super star to create this PURE product.
H20nulin contains sodium, calcium, magnesium and potassium and is delivered directly into the bloodstream. I like to put it in morning tea or in spa water to replenish all the minerals in my body.
It helps with hydration so much that you don’t have to drown in 5 liters of water. Such a vacation must have.
Farm Wines from dry farms
I’ve tried so many different wines from around the world and I feel like I’ve finally figured it out: many companies add shit to their wine. This means additives, flavors, colors, flavor changes, sulfites and SUGAR. Yes. added. sugar. u. yours. wine. So it’s no surprise that you wake up after two glasses with a headache, because you basically have two Snickers bars. It’s disgusting that we buy a bottle of wine from Italy and think no sugar is added when it actually weighs up to 40 grams.
Anyway, as you know, I recently had my friend Katie Wellness mom on TSC podcast and she told me all about that company they called Wines from dry farms. The reason I was IMMEDIATELY interested was that they deliver it right to your door monthly – you know I love delivery. You can also guarantee their wines:
+ are natural, sustainable and biodynamic.
+ are grown and produced using traditional wine production practices.
+ have no chemical additives to improve aroma, color, taste or texture.
+ no or have minimal filtering / fine.
+ have no or minimal addition of SO2 (sulfites).
+ do not have commercial yeast to change the taste.
+ use minimal interventions in vinification and aging.
To take it a step further, I researched and found out how specific they are in choosing their wines, and they only procure authentic, natural wines.
THEN I TOOK IT FURTHER…. and talked to the owners. They taught me about their wine, it has a low percentage of alcohol and why so much wine is added sugar and sulfite. I told them I love red wines from Italy, I love roses and so they sent me some wine to try. They just get it.
It was time to give it a try – I always want human guinea pigs for you. I had TWO GLASSES of Tuscan red color, I ate as I ate and went to bed.
The next morning, nothing. Not a shred of headache. I didn’t even increase mine water intake. So I decided to try my sister Mimi and best friend Westin (I don’t mean to brag, but Westin knows his shit when it comes to alcohol, and Mimi loves her wine, so they were the perfect people to test).
They both said ….. there is no store.
A few more fun facts about Wines from dry farms:
+ use an independent certified oenologist to test all wines to be able to guarantee that the wines are FREE SUGAR (thank god).
+ ensure that every wine meets strict health and cleanliness standards (we don’t want a bunch of shit in our wine that doesn’t have to be there).
+ work with small family farmers to offer wine that is grown and made the way nature intended.
+ support small, organic, natural growers with fair prices.
+ confirm lower alcohol and sulfite content.
It totally pays to pack a few bottles of dry farm wine in your suitcase.
Drinks careful drinks
When you’re at a beach bar, like tequila with Pellegrino, ask for lime and lemon juice. This makes things skinny without NO SUGAR. Sugar is such a big culprit of a hangover (which we just talked about above).
Tea Pique tea
This digestive tea made from matcha or ginger is the BEST tea on the market. They do not use tea bags (which are usually full of shit, toxins and nasty shit), so you can simply open a small package and pour the tea into ice water or hot water.
It is super quality and helps so much with a hangover. Pique tea goes through a triple check of toxins for pesticides, heavy metals and mold.
Good news: you can use the code SKINNY for 20% discount. Get matcha and ginger digestion. Trust me.
Supplement Supplement without lost days
This is a herbal supplement that I always take after my first drink. It is full of antioxidants and minerals, so it hydrates and replenishes the body.
Other useful tips:
+ ice roll off your face (you’ll release and unblock in no time)
+ IV therapy (Grace for drip hydration in Austin is amazing)
+ Wim Hof breath and cold shower ( more here )
+ training ( Kim Kelly always shoots me)
And if none of this works, just fucking a dog’s hair and call it a day.
Sometimes spicy bloody Mary is exactly what the doctor ordered.
