We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share the hangover cures they swear by. Here are their interesting answers:

2. Kool Soft Gel Sheets. / Via Facebook: HockeyMakeup

"I buy 'Be Kool Soft Gel Sheets for Kids' at my local drugstore or Target. Commonly used for children with fevers, but they work on 'big kids' too! There's menthol mixed into the gel, which cools the head and helps to draw out pain. I drink a bottle of water, take two OTC pain pills, slap a patch on my forehead and I'm good to go the next day!" — HockeyMakeup


6. Powerade, aspirin, a full breakfast, and red OR green salsa.

"Before you go to sleep, drink a liter of Powerade or Gatorade and take a couple aspirin or ibuprofen. (No, you won't be up all night peeing. You're dehydrated from the booze.) When you wake up, you need bacon, eggs, home fries, and toast, preferably with salsa (either red or green)." — Nikki Ourand Lambert


7. Wawa breakfast sandwich, Tums, and Gatorade.

"Wawa turkey, sausage, egg white, and cheese, Tums, and a cool blue Gatorade — the one with the sport top." —Amy Malllgrave

10. Ancient Irish river sand.

"Have someone bury you up to the neck in wet river sand — Ancient Irish cure, works for me every time. If it's ocean sand or lake sand honestly, tho, don't even bother." — vomkurtzpuke


11. A healthy smoothie.

"I make this smoothie with strawberries, mangos, peaches, carrots, and a dash of lime. And I use frozen yogurt and vanilla soy milk. So tasty! And great for my hangover. My friends swear by it." — amys45e8e2ff5
