The morning after an over-indulgent evening you probably feel like crap but you also look it, too. Little shut-eye, too much booze, plus loads of late night junk food means you’ll definitely wake up on the wrong side of the bed. As in, those indiscretions are going to be written all over your face. You can disguise your self-destructive tendencies before you head out the door with a combination of energizing ingredients, detoxifying formulas, and the topical equivalent of a slap in the face. Without further ado, (we can see that forehead vein throbbing), here’s how to hide a hangover.
