The Weird Hangover Cure This Beauty Guru Swears By
This is one purported hangover treatment we've yet to try
Hangovers: they happen to the best of us, and we all have different ways of dealing with them. From bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches to a little bit of hair of the dog (Bloody Mary, anyone?), we've tried 'em all. But this latest so-called cure, straight from the mouth of a beauty expert, has us raising our eyebrows in skepticism... but not so much that we won't give it a shot.
Makeup pro and brow guru Ramy Gafni has just the thing to get your face back in fighting shape after a wild night out, and you can find it in your kitchen cabinet. Gafni swears by an "aluminum wrap facial" to de-puff, calm inflamed skin, and make you look a lot more, well, like yourself. He recommends tearing off a few large strips of aluminum foil (just your standard Reynolds Wrap will do) and putting them in the freezer for about an hour.

Once they're satisfyingly chilled, place one of the sheets over your face (with some holes punched in for breathing; eye holes for seeing optional depending on your light sensitivity) and press it down over your face. Relax, and try not to think too hard about what happened the night before, while the mask goes to work.
The catch, of course, is that Gafni's "cure" only applies to one aspect of the hangover, and it's strictly aesthetic, so don't throw out that Pepto Bismol just yet! [Refinery29]
