Do you keep your cellar well-stocked for Holi well in advance? Like colours and food, alcohol makes for an important part of celebration for many on the day of Holi. Going a little overboard on your favourite drink on a special occasion is not uncommon. But if you do so, you cannot escape the obvious consequence: A very bad hangover. It comes with all the known evils--headache, nausea and stomach ache. These hangover symptoms last for 8-24 hours. But do not let hangover take a toll on your mood and health post Holi. Though there is no immediate cure for these symptoms, there are quite a few easy-to-use home hacks to relieve hangover.


Olive oil:A traditional way to reduce the impact of a hangover is to consume one spoonful of olive oil before going out to drink. It helps to grease the intestine and hence alcohol takes more time to absorb. Also, you can eat a pizza or other fatty foods for the same purpose.


Orange juice:Try to sneak in a sugary food such an orange juice in between your drinks, as it will help to speed up your alcohol metabolism and curb down the risk of a hangover.
