Khloe Kardashian
Khloé Kardashian — Do Yoga

Khloé Kardashian has a specific yoga pose she does after a night of drinking to ward off any signs of hangovers. On a post on her website titled, "Natural Ways to Ditch Your Holiday Hangover," the reality star recommends going into a child's pose (essentially kneeling, putting your head to the floor, and grabbing your feet with your hands) as the way she combats hangovers.

“The position is said to stimulate the circulation of lymph, a fluid in your body that helps remove toxins, AKA all of that alcohol you drank last night," she wrote.

Gwyneth Paltrow — Alternate Between a Hot Bath and a Cold Shower

Gwyneth Paltrow has a big of a complicated remedy for hangovers, but she swears it works.

After soaking her body for 20 minutes, she showers freezing cold water on herself for one minute before hopping back into the bath until she's warmed up. When she's nice and warm, she rinses herself a final time with freezing cold water before leaving the bathroom refreshed and hangover-free.

Zoe Saldana — Take a Salt Bath Before Sleeping

She highly recommends taking 15 minutes at the end of the night to soak in a warm Epsom salt bath to detox from a night of partying. Epsom salts are known to draw liquids out of your body, reducing bloating and puffiness

"Before going to bed, I put Epsom salts into a warm bath and soak for 15 minutes. The next day I wake up with half the night erased," she told Us Weekly.

Jessica Alba — Stay Away from Dark Alcohol

If you don't want a hangover, Jessica Alba recommends staying far away from dark-colored alcohol, like brandies and bourbon. She told E! News that mixing different alcohols and drinking dark alcohols, especially, is a recipe for a hangover disaster. She also warns against eating carbs the night before, which she believes intensifies post-drunken night headaches.

"The idea that eating carbs before sleep the night of heavy drinking is also a myth," she said.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran — Drink Sprite and Water Before Bed

To make sure he doesn't wake up with a raging headache, Ed Sheeran takes a few minutes before knocking out to drink a pink of water. Then, in the morning, he sips on some Sprite (flat—without bubbles) and goes on with his day.

"Yeah. I've been told to down a pint of water before you go to bed, and then you'll feel fine. Apparently, flat Sprite in the morning is a good cure too," he told BBC.

Daniel Craig
Daniel Craig — Drink Pedialyte

Daniel Craig stays true with the age-old trick to drink Pedialyte (a kid-friendly diuretic) to combat hangovers. The children's drink, which is known to help dehydration, is also an excellent way to rehydrate your body after a night of heavy drinking, which can sap tons of moisture out of your system. Naturally, Craig stole the trick from his kids.

"It’s basically a diuretic; you give it to kids who are dehydrated. If you wake up in the morning and you’ve got one of those on standby and you down the whole lot… you can carry on drinking!” he told DuJour.
