Having a good time partying till the wee hours of the night doesn’t have to be reflected the morning after, with tell-tale signs that you’ve staggered in after 3am. To rebound spectacularly without letting on that you’ve been chugging down alcohol and dancing on the tables, here’s a cheat list that will help you appear fresh and preppy the next day: Before you drink To reduce alcohol damage in your digestive system, you should consume more food containing protein and fat before you start the alcohol binge. Prior to the party, it’s a good idea to keep hydrating yourself all day with water, preferably mineral water or coconut water (to boost electrolyte content) as alcohol molecules will absorb H2O drastically.
