Gwyneth Paltrow has unleashed a new issue of GOOP upon the world, and you know what that means: more advice by rich people, for rich people!
In this latest installment, Gwynnie lets us know how the 1% deals with hangovers. First, they find a hangover cure that they love, and they invest in the company. Then, they use their monthly newsletter to promote it. In Gwyneth’s case, this company is called “Mercy.” She writes:
Full disclosure, this stuff is so good that I went ahead and invested in the company. Mercy is a drink that is almost like a health elixir – packed with amino acids, vitamins, minerals and herbs that protect your system against the inevitable hangover and that flush you can get from drinking. You can drink it alone or mix it with alcohol to create a hangover preventing cocktail. I also drink one if I’m just feeling tired to give my system a boost.
What a coincidence, that that one happened to make her list! Anyway, if you’re rich, after promoting a company in which you have money invested, you take a trip to the spa to help ease the pains of your overindulgence in Dom Perignon. Gwyneth enjoys a hot and cold soak, followed by a body scrub and then a massage:
Start in a hot, dry room and then move into an even warmer steam room. Then splash yourself with cold water (or even dunk in cold pool or under a cold shower). Follow it with a full body scrubdown, which is typically followed by a massage. At the end you’ll be sent to a cool room to relax and cool down.
We agree that a headache and nausea justifies spending upwards of $200 at the spa. Because what else are you supposed to do — wait it out?
