ZEEL MASSAGE ON-DEMAND
Hangovers mean headaches. A massage is a great way to increase circulation, which also pushes blood to the brain, easing pesky headaches caused by your hangover.
Zeel is an on-demand massage service via an app on your phone. Massage boosts your immune system. During a hangover, your body is full of toxins, and your liver, the organ responsible for breaking them down, just can’t keep up. Massage will help your lymphatic system clear your blood of all the poisons you put into it during the holidays.
Lack of oxygen is also a main case of hangover as it takes 3 molecules of oxygen to take down 1 molecule of alcohol. This is mainly the reason of headache and fatigued feeling the next day as the compounds weren't removed from your system. Oxigen water speeds up the process of removing alcohol molecules as it has a high concentration of oxygen and that is an extra dose of oxygen. By maximal intake of oxygenated water in your brain, there is a much more efficient blood flow and a clear mind. This allows you to feel so much better with increased levels of energy in a short period of time - that is shorter than your regular intake of coffee or plainly doing nothing to eliminate hangover.
WelleCo Super Elixir Alkalizing Greens
The Super Elixir Alkalizing Greens was designed to help your body maintain its pH balance, and contains a combination of 45 natural ingredients, including super greens, Chinese herbs and digestive enzymes. The Super Elixir contains:
Alkalizing Greens: These nutritional powerhouses balance the acidity in your skin and the alkalinity in your blood. When that balance is achieved, your skin holds moisture and your cells function properly, giving you a healthy glow.
Horsetail and Dandelion: The horsetail herb contains silica, which provide benefits to your hair, skin and nails. Dandelion promotes healthy liver and digestive function, reducing toxins in the body that would otherwise damage your skin. Good digestive function also prevents breakouts that can develop on your jawline.
Aloe Vera Juice: This is a great tonic for the body, from digestive to kidney support. The skin is often called the third kidney, so by taking care of the kidneys, you'll also keep your skin clear and limit dark under-eye circles.
Grape Seed Extract: This antioxidant acts as a free radical scavenger reducing internal and external aging.
Probiotics: Aids in supporting digestion and keeping Candida at bay, which greatly reduces sugar cravings, while having an excellent effect on acne and overall ageing.

David’s Tea’s the Feel-Good Collection is a collection of healthy teas that is a great supplement to any lifestyle changes I make. The Feel Good Collection contains 25 grams of each of these teas, as well as 20 tea sachets to make your own tea bags:

VANITY PLANET’S ICE ROLLER
The Revive Professional Ice Roller can instantly reduce inflammation and give your skin a gorgeous glow while helping fight the appearance of blemishes, fine lines, and enlarged pores. Icy temperatures help flush fluid from your face, reduce puffiness, tighten your jawline, shrink enlarged pores, soothe redness, brighten under-eye circles, and improve blood circulation. While applying ice directly to your skin can cause irritation, you can still get a full range of beauty benefits with Revive, simply leave it in the freezer for 4 or more hours, and then you’re all set!
Biore Charcoal Pore Strips
Detox your skin! Remove weeks (yes- weeks!) worth of pore gunk with just one strip. With natural charcoal, pore strips suck out deep-down dirt, oil and blackheads, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily. To use: Slap it on. Wait 10 minutes. Strip it off.
Elemis Eye Masks
These clinically proven hydra-gel eye masks are formulated to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Potent plankton extract, combined with the power of Padina Pavonica and Chlorella, provides an instant skin-tightening effect, whilst Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the fragile eye area. Eye contours are left looking visibly smoother and feeling intensely moisturized.
One of the best ways to cure a hangover is an adrenaline rush. The increased blood circulation help to alleviate the symptoms of a hangover. For a serious head rush, book an indoor skydiving experience with iFly.
