Gwyneth Paltrow has posted a helpful New Year’s Eve-themed newsletter on her GOOP website.
The Oscar-winning actress and domestic diva has laid out multiple options for those who plan to enjoy adult beverages on Saturday night. Some suggestions are more practical than others. Let’s run through them:
Water, of course, is the first thing mentioned. Alcohol dehydrates, as we know. "It is thus essential to drink a lot of water while drinking and before you go to bed... it can prevent a hangover or at least lessen one,” says Dr. Frank Lipman.
Over-the-counter remedies like Alka Seltzer (or Resolve, if you’re in London like Gwynnie) are suggested, as is a prevention drink called Mercy that Paltrow invests in. Also: Milk Thistle capsules.
Next, Paltrow recommends hydrotherapy. “I've found that the best hangover remedy can be a hot and cold spa treatment,” she writes. (Are spas open New Year’s Day?) If you can’t find a spa, Gwyneth says you can pop in and out between a hot bath and a cold shower for a similar effect.
Other helpful tips include drinking mineral water like Pellegrino, eating a proper meal before and after going out, and taking vitamin C. The morning after, you could also “eat one or two Umeboshi Plums.”
Last but not least is the classic “hair of the dog” remedy. Gwyneth includes recipes for Bloody Marys (or “Red Snapper” as she calls it), to be imbibed on January 1.
You have now left the planet Zebulon. It's good to be back on earth...
Gweneth is quite stucketh on herself!
The best hangover cure is to not drink so much the night before.
She sure seems to think alcohol hangovers are a major health concern for the world. Sounds like she is an expert on over-drinking anyway.
-Happy new year
I added Ms. Paltrow's advice to my New Yeas Eve drinking post. http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2011/12/well-well-welland-just-in-time-for-new.html The move information the better!
Gweneth gives us a "let them eat cake" moment for the new year. Exotic plums, spa treatments? Your personal chef make you those special meals before and after your exclusive evening in your exclusive clubs you are shuttled to in your isolated limousine? Really??
You need a few months in a food kitchen without contact with your ultra wealthy equally isolated friends. Come on down to those struggling to make ends meet with a $35,000 a year with 2 kids and see how your hangover suggestions work then.
You want a good hangover reciepe?? Why don't you give your money to people (not some tax shelter charity your agent set up to make you look good) who will use it to feed, cloth and shelter themselves and their families? That way you won't have the money to get stupid drunk.
Ok, you've covered hangover tips for the rich and famous. Now what about the rest of us?
She's giving out hangover tips now? Is there any part of my life this totally fake, scripted, wanna-be diva won't try to cram herself into? Gweneth...you are an OK actress. Run with it! You aren't and don't need to be a singer, a cook, an author, America's mom, or our best friend. Just stop embarrassing yourself and trying so hard to be everywhere. It's unbecoming and comes across as fake.
Holy moly what a pretentious d-bag! Hot and cold spa treatment? Are you out of your mind? Why not suggest a bowl of Beluga? This broad has no sense of reality.
Agreed. When will this pretentious, out-of-touch blowhard shut up already? You know what's good for a hangover? Taking a trip to the Bahamas and being woken by your agent who's just bought you another 3-stroy arc on Glee to cross-promote your forced attempt at a pop album. Works for me every time!
Grow up Gwen.
OK. I did do a day spa treatment on New Years Day. I had an 11 AM appointment in Vegas at New York New York where the package included a facial, a scrub, and a massage. This was in Vegas after getting major comps because my brother won big-time gambling. It was a nice gift. Gwyneth was absolutely right about the spa treatment for a hangover. But I doubt I'd get this lucky again!!
This article reminded me that this vapid, annoying twit won an Oscar. Truly, the world sucks donkey.
I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
i don't think i'd advertise my expertise regarding drunkiness, what a tool. seems she either has a. alot of time on her hands, or b. insecurities about herself that require her to act like a know it all, i really hate know it alls
Best remedy for hangovers is more booze!
The best cure would be if she walked into my bedroom naked.
Dear Gwynth Paltrow,
No one cares about your assinine website that recommends "hot and cold spa treatments" for hangovers. Please continue doing what you do best, which is absolutely nothing.
Please take the stick out of your ass.
Could not have written it better. I guess putting out a cook book and "acting/singing" in the lame-ass movine Country Strong (that I will never watch) qualifies her on drinking remedies. And shame on cnn.com for wasting web space with this crap.
So to summarize your post.... herp derp herp derp, i hump squirrels.
I wonder why she is such an expert on hangover remedies?
Here's a thought, don't get wasted enough to have a hangover. HaHa!
but what fun is that?
She is a slush
This chick is nuts. Does she think everyone can afford spa treatments? Get real!
She might ne nuts but she's hot! These two below are fighting one another
gwyneth does not know how to party, but I do cause Im FIRSTY!!!
