Gwyneth Paltrow: Hangover Tips for NYE!

Gwyneth Paltrow: Hangover Tips for NYE!

Gwyneth Paltrow has just updated her Goop newsletter to share some hangover tips for New Years Eve!

The 39-year-old actress wrote, “We all know what happens on NYE, so here is our best to help you prepare for the day after.”

We asked around for the best hangover remedies we could find and here’s what we’ve come up with: We went to Boots, one of the main pharmacies here in London and the pharmacist recommended Alka Seltzer, which is Aspirin-based, and Resolve, which is Paracetamol-based (if you have asthma, stick with Resolve) to settle your stomach and get rid of that headache. He also recommended Milk Thistle capsules (also available as drops), which you should take before drinking to prepare your liver for a heavy night.

Hydrotherapy: If you have the time and the inclination, I’ve found that the best hangover remedy can be a hot and cold spa treatment. The original would be the traditional Turkish Hamman, but you can find this kind of treatment in spas all over the world, including my favorites, the low-key Japanese spas in New York, like Osaka.

  • Fungus

    Gwynnie, Gwynnie! How I want to be your media adviser! Here are some tips for free:

    (1) Ever heard of Occupy? “Elitism” ain’t hip any longer, even whether it’s blatant (see *) or just blatant (see **).

    *”I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year. ”

    **“We have great dinner parties at which everyone sits around talking about politics, history, art and literature—-all this peppered with really funny jokes. But back in America, I was at a party and a girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh, my God! Are those Juicy jeans that you’re wearing?’ and I thought, I can’t stay here. I have to get back to Europe.”

    (2) No one with Steven Spielberg as a godfather got there by “hard work” alone, so stop mentioning how hard you work in every single interview. Have some respect for real people!

    (3) There’s practical value, and there’s fluff (hangover cures? com’on! looks like GOOP is on its last days). Even someone with that much self-professed culture and good breeding needs to realise that fluff ain’t going win you any fans.

  • erica

    Best hangover tip is not to drink ;)

  • Carol

    Gwyneth Paltrow presents “Hangover Cures for the 1 Percent.”

  • Darren

    I agree with you Erica…..the best tip is to just not drink at all…..I can’t think of a worse example than giving advice on how to cure a hangover on the internet…..I hope her kids aren’t old enough to read because I’d be pretty embarrassed to see my mother giving hangover tips…..Maybe Madonna should write her a letter begging her not to get drunk as she did back in the 90′s when Gwyneth smoked….maybe we should make drinking the social pariah we’ve made smoking!

  • Peapo

    I can’t figure out why Gwyneth gets such a bad rap. I think she is an incredible actress, a great mom, and just a beautiful woman. Go ahead and red thumb me for giving someone a compliment.

  • HarryO

    It’s amazing how much free and trivial publicity a has been can get when their godfather is Spielberg.

  • FriendsFan81

    she looks shapeless?

    (4) GOOP isn’t just condescending, it’s BLAND. You need more photos, more multimedia, more engagement with potential readers. Try giveaways, special product promotions – anything of practical value that’s not just focused on showing the world how cultured you are and/or how advanced your sensibilities are.

    (5) Instead of getting defensive with negative criticism and claiming haters are just jealous (very bad move), show that you have a sense of humour about yourself. Think George Clooney rather than Tom Cruise. GC has been SO smart about laughing off stuff like gay rumours rather than suing for anything vaguely negative written about him. Someone that many in Hollywood can learn from.

    (6) Shed the condescending attitude on GOOP. That blog needs to be revamped to be a portal for everyone, not just for you to flaunt your “amazing lifestyle”. I would suggest one “luxury”/”high life” post for every five down-to-earth practical posts of real value. For example, instead of recommending $200 boots for five year olds (HELLO???), do a Christmas present list of items under $50. For “luxury” posts, instead of self-promoting posts, do interesting stuff that average people will want to know about the circles you move in (and in a respectful tone). For example, inside scoops on fashion shows and interesting moments on film sets. Anything that shows you’re half human.

    (7) Don’t be so eager to express yourself on GOOP or show how cultured you are. You’re a 21st century celebrity, not an aristocrat from the 18th century. Nor are you a household name like Martha Stewart or Oprah, so you might want to rethink that “I’m entitled” vibe.

    (8) Since your image has suffered a massive beating, it’s time to push the emergency button. In PR this means CHARITY WORK PHOTO OPPS. In your case, I wouldn’t recommend expensive charity functions. You need to be seen getting your hands dirty. Think Angelina sleeping in cots in Ethiopia. Whatever it is, you need to think about turning “ice queen” into “mother earth”.

    For hangovers, milk thistle has been common place for cleansing the liver due to it’s anti-oxidative properties. However, that’s only part of the story! Hangovers are the result of not only increased toxicity, but dehydration and nutrient depletion. Thus you must have a good blend of anti-oxidants, electrolytes and essential vitamins (especially B6 & B12).
