A serious hangover usually accompanies a night of moderate or heavy drinking, but it can also leave you smelling like alcohol the following day. The best way to clean out your pores after drinking is by sweating out the toxins and then thoroughly bathing. A brisk walk, vigorous cardiovascular exercise or even a short time in a sauna will help flush your pores of the toxins leftover from the alcohol you drank the night before.
Go into the bathroom and turn the shower on as hot as it will go. Close the door and allow the room fog up with steam. The hot air will open your pores. Sit in the room for 20 to 30 minutes before turning off the shower.
Perform some light to moderate cardiovascular exercise immediately after leaving the bathroom. Make sure it is enough to make you sweat for 15 to 20 minutes. For individuals with strong cardiovascular systems this could mean performing strenuous exercise. Towel off periodically throughout the workout
sweating while your pores are still open from the steam bath allows toxins to seep out, and toweling off periodically keeps them from reentering your pores
Take a shower, thoroughly wash your body with soap. Wash your face with a light pore cleanser.
Tips & Warnings
- If you are in a serious rush and do not have time to exercise take an extra hot shower to open your pores while you wash, and put on extra antiperspirant deodorant to cover the alcohol smell, until you are able to do a full cleanse.
