11 Proven Ways To Cure A Hangover from cosmopolitan.com

1. Drink Water
  An evil hangover is all about dehydration. So gulp plenty of water post-party   and the morning-after to rehydrate. Better yet, prevent a hangover altogether   by drinking a water for every cocktail you sip!

2. Chow Down
  Pizza, egg sandwiches-hangovers often lead to fast food feasts. But docs at   the Mayo Clinic say bland snacks like toast, and crackers are best for boosting   blood sugar and settling an upset stomach

3. Globe Artichoke
  Holistic health says that these delicious, yet tough-to-crack, veggies contain   substances that can reduce bloating and nausea, two common symptoms of hangovers.   They can also help protect liver cells from booze.

4. Coconut Water
  Trendy coconut water is a sort of natural Gatorade. The Food and Agriculture   Organization (FAO) says coconut water has the same five electrolytes found in   our blood, which will help you rehydrate post-partying.

5. Amazing Eggs
  James Bond's preferred hangover method was the prairie oyster-a raw egg, some   Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt, and pepper in a glass. But since raw   eggs are scary, reach for cooked ones-they're packed with cysteine, an amino   acid vital to detoxing, even if scientists remain dubious.

6. Vitamins
  They're not a cure-all, but a University of California study found that B-Complex   vitamins can help hangovers by restoring energy to your aching body.

7. Lemon Pits
  Literally-lemon pits. Some revelers in Puerto Rico swear by rubbing a slice   of lemon (or lime) in your armpit before drinking, or afterwards to fight hangover   dehydration. We doubt this really works, but, bonus: natural lemony deodorant?

8. Milk Thistle
  Always consult a doc before taking any sort of supplement, but this liquid herbal   extract is said to work as a "liver tonic." And we all know excessive   drinking = bad for your liver.

9. Evening Primrose Oil
  It sounds like a luxurious bath product, but this oil from the flowery primrose   plant is an age-old alleged hangover cure, as it can help cut down on stomach   discomfort and help along liver function. But take it with a grain of salt,   as study results are mixed.

10. Sweat
  You're not actually sweating out that tequila when you hit the gym the morning   after your holiday party. But exercise can help in the way of endorphins!

11. Sleep
  Time heals all wounds, including hangovers. Docs at the Mayo Clinic say the   best remedy is to go back to sleep and hope your hangover is gone by the time   you wake up!
