You had a great time partying and dancing? Amazing! If only hangovers didn’t exist... Tired, unmotivated, with a banging headache, you wonder: What’s the fastest way to get out of this depressing mood and stamina slump? The friendly hansgrohe guide recommends plenty of water, healthy meals and a walk in the fresh air.
A shower can work wonders after a night out. The brave among us will step under the ice-cold shower the day after the night before to clear their heads. There is nothing better to kick-start the circulation. But this isn’t for everybody, especially not in winter. Even with an alcohol-induced illness, the perfect compromise between showering with cold and hot water is hot and cold shower cycles. This stimulates the circulation and gives you a quick jump-start. The best way to end your shower cycle is with a cold phase: move the shower head slowly from the feet up, towards the heart.
Even though it’s tempting because it’s so blissful: Don’t rely on hot showers the day after drinking. Not even if you’re freezing cold. As your circulation will take a dive. A hot bath is a hangover taboo. Even if you think a hot bubble bath is really relaxing, it causes enormous strain on your weakened body. Drinking hot tea is so much better for you. It warms you up, rinses out the stressed detoxifying organs and helps your headache. You should also eat healthy, salty meals and lots of vegetables to neutralise the acids in your body.
hansgrohe recommends (and not just on days when you’re not feeling fit on your feet): Getting yourself load-bearing grab bars to mitigate the risk of slipping. The Unica Comfort shower rail
and Comfort foot support and grab bar
ensure extra safety and stability. You can operate the shower system with your eyes closed with hansgrohe Select technology
, which can be used to control hand and overhead showers and all their jet types intuitively at the touch of a button. Afterwards, dry yourself off and go for a long walk in the woods. And take deep breaths!
