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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
