Prevent your New Year’s hangover
Most of Britain has accepted that come the first day of 2013, they won't be feeling quite as perky as they might like to be.
Indeed, the celebrations on New Year's Eve are more than likely to give the vast majority of the UK population a bit of a sore head.
If you've already accepted that you're going to be feeling a little ropey on the first, there are some things that you can do to lessen the hangover if you plan ahead.
Don't drink on an empty stomach
With all the leftover food in the fridge, this one shouldn't be a tricky one.
Scientists have found that the more you eat, the slower alcohol will affect you, and therefore the more you can drink without being affected.
According to these specialists, fatty foods are the best for preventing hangovers (hurrah!), as they slow the absorption of alcohol.
If you want healthier oils, you can try oily fish such as salmon, or vegetables like avocados.
Stick to one type of alcohol
Variety is not the spice of life when it comes to drinking!
Indeed, mixing spirits, beers and wine is most definitely a recipe for disaster when it comes to the morning after.
The different additives, flavourings, and other elements in different types of alcohol can often mix together to make a very grim first day of the year...
Drink water at the same time
Alcohol makes you urinate more, which can lead to dehydration.
When you're dehydrated, you can feel a lot more headachey, as well as tired, achey and stressed – not a nice hangover.
It's advisable to have a glass of water with every drink to keep hydrated.
It is also recommendable to have sugary drinks such as energy drinks, the processes that break down alcohol also produce lactic acid and other chemicals that interfere with the production of sugar.
Adding this sugar back throughout the night can really stop the next day blues.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
