Soak for twenty minutes and then pop into a freezing cold shower for 1 minute. Get back in the hot bath and stay until you’re warmed up. Then get back in the shower for 1 more minute,” Gwyneth said.

Ed confessed to BBC that his hangovers are nothing to joke about. “My hangovers are quite bad,” admitted the “Shape of You” singer. While he didn’t clearly state that this is what he personally does, this is what he had to say about hangover remedies.

“I’ve been told to down a pint of water before you go to bed, and then you’ll feel fine,” said the “Perfect” hitmaker. “Apparently, flat Sprite in the morning is a good cure too.”

9. Jessica Alba – Ginger, Asparagus, Egg Yolks

Just like her company, Jessica is honest about what to do and not to do when it comes to hangovers. “Avoid dark-colored drinks,” said the “Honey” star in a video where she teamed up with ATTN: and Facebook Watch. “The idea that eating carbs before sleep the night of heavy drinking is also a myth,” stated Alba.

When it comes to hangover cures, she had some interesting ones. “Certain enzymes in asparagus are shown to help, as is fresh ginger for brewing your own tea.” But let’s face it, you might not have that ready in your fridge.

So what’s the alternative? “Protein and mineral-dense foods are great for the morning-after. Egg yolk is great,” said Jessica. “You can also drink something that replenishes your electrolytes like coconut water, which will naturally detoxify your body.”

12. Khloé Kardashian - Yoga

On her now-defunct app, Khloé revealed that the one thing she loves to do after a night out followed by a rough morning is yoga. More specifically, the child’s pose. “The position is said to stimulate the circulation of lymph, a fluid in your body that helps remove toxins, AKA all of that alcohol you drank last night,” said True’s mom.

So there you have it. There is, however, one remedy that trumps all of these – drink in moderation or don’t drink at all. Your liver and skin will thank you.
