If you've been out celebrating last night, the chances are you're probably lying in bed with a hangover this morning.

Heavy drinking can take a toll on many festive revellers the day after. And it has been suggested that darker drinks such as red wine lead to the worst hangovers.

The key to recovering after drinking a lot of alcohol is to replenish your body's nutrient and mineral resources, as well as rehydrating yourself.

A spokesperson from NetVoucherCodes.co.uk said: “For many, hangovers are inevitable throughout the party season.

“One of the most obvious ways to stop a hangover is to slow down on the drinks – or to not drink at all.

“Everyone has their own methods to fight a hangover, so finding out what works best for you could help save a lot of pain and wasted days this Christmas.”

Experts from NetVoucherCodes.co.uk have revealed some of the best hangover cures that will not cost the world:

The sugar in full fat Coca Cola will give you some much needed energy if you are unable to catch up on any lost sleep. Ice cold is often the preference, and from a can instead of a bottle.

Salty crisps

Salt is one of the minerals you will be lacking after drinking a lot of alcohol. So, salty crisps and food will help boost your supplies, as well as waking up your taste buds. Eating should also help settle the stomach, although it can often be seen as “kill or cure”.

Fry up

The carbs in one of Britain’s favourite dishes helps restore sugar levels, with the nutrients and minerals also topping up the reserves that you lost from the night before. Hungover bodies are said to crave grease, so giving them what they want when you are feeling delicate will only help the battle against the hangover.


One way to avoid facing the problems a hangover can bring is by simply sleeping through them. If you were celebrating overnight, you probably will not have had much sleep anyway, so you will have plenty to catch up on.

A long, hot steamy shower is the go-to hangover cure for many. When you’re feeling lethargic, standing under a stream of water can be just the tonic you need.

Fresh air

A walk outside will soon blow the cobwebs away and alleviate any signs of a hangover. Getting the blood pumping and giving you something else to concentrate on will almost make you forget about the night before.

Alcohol makes you need the toilet more, which is what makes you dehydrated. Although you’re drinking liquid, alcohol doesn’t hydrate, so plenty of water should be drunk to help replenish your body.
