A Wake-Up-

Hangover Routine

There’s no avoiding some level of payback from a hangover—in the traditional “I feel like death” sense, but also in the way it shows up on your skin. But there are some brilliant clean skin-care tricks for a face that’s puffy, dehydrated, blotchy, or dull. (And short of jumping in a thirty-eight-degree Lake Tahoe like our intrepid staffers on Netflix, there’s always the cold tap on your shower.) Whether it’s a trip to a greasy spoon, an hour and a half in a hot-yoga studio, or GP’s hydrotherapy strategy, everyone’s got their version of a reset button for feeling better after a night of overindulgence. But this routine should have you looking better, too.

    Whether you’re doing the full Wim Hof or just a momentary blast, wake up with cold water. Toggle between cold and cozy (if you’ve got an infrared sauna, of course indulge, but warm water after cold also feels good), and in the same spirit of whole-body enlivenment, definitely get in some dry brushing.
