Did you wake up Monday morning with a serious hangover and have to go to work? We have all been there! Here’s how to detox after a weekend partying binge.

About 40% of adults in the United States who drink alcohol do so in amounts that risk health consequences.

Women especially are prone to the less pleasant side effects of alcohol.

While it’s normal to let go and have a little fun, sometimes you wake up with a massive hangover and a need to purge your body of all the alcohol and drunk food you’ve consumed after a weekend partying binge.

Are you reading this now thinking, “Yas girl please, tell me how to feel like a queen again”…? You’re in luck. Here’s how to detox your body and get back to doing you faster than it takes to say “tequila.”

Replenish Your Body’s Vitamins

It goes without saying that you’ll want to ensure you stay hydrated as part of a detox after drinking.

Alcohol has flushed all of the vitamins out of your body and likely left you dehydrated in the process.

So, reach for that Gatorade to replenish your electrolytes or try something like Pedialyte if you’re severely dehydrated. If you have an upset stomach or a pounding headache, try herbal teas.

Now, it’s time to eat.

There are usually two types of hangovers: the kind where you feel like you don’t want to even think about food and the kind where you want all of the greasy fast food you can order from the delivery menu.

However tempting it might be to order extra fries with your delivery, you’ll want to eat as many fruits and vegetables as you can. Try a supercharged fruit smoothie or even an acai bowl.

Practice Post Weekend Partying Self-Love

If your mentality is very “treat yo self,” then you probably think that ordering five vodka cranberries and getting loaded on drunk nachos is a version of self-love.

However, after a weekend partying, you’ll want to have better self-care tips on hand for how to detox after binge drinking.

First, begin by getting rest. Stay in bed if you can and let your body recharge and absorb the nutrients you’re feeding it.

Take a hot shower to let the steam help you sweat the toxins out. Then, put on a face mask, light a candle and enjoy some guilt-free Netflix.

If this isn’t enough to take care of your hangover and help you detox, then you might have a problem. Consider checking into alcohol rehab if you feel like you’re weekend adventures are getting a little out of control.

Take Care of Yourself

Taking care of yourself is a healthy balance between having fun and staying healthy.

Try to strike a nice balance between the two and enjoy going out with friends while also eating healthy and ensuring you’re not engaging in dangerous behavior.

If you’re able to do this, you’ll find that you won’t need to recover from weekend partying as often. Got your body back in order but feel like your face still looks a bit dull? Take a look at these skin tips to keep on spreading the self-love.
