It’s no secret that hangovers are the WORST. Especially after Dry January when you have felt so great. But what if there was a new trend on TikTok that could make them go away? According to the NY Post, a doctor named Chris Jackson swears by this new method and says it can help with nausea, anxiety, migraines, and even your skincare routine. So…is this really the hangover cure we’ve all been waiting for?

What is The Trend?

The trend involves placing water and ice cubes in a giant bowl and sticking your head in it. You then have to hold your face in the water for 5-10 seconds up to 3x so that the diver’s reflex is activated. This will supposedly help with nausea, anxiety, migraines, and even your skincare routine. It has become so popular on TikTok that people have started making videos of themselves trying out the trend!

Does it Really Work?

It’s hard to say whether or not this trend works since every person responds differently to different treatments. But some doctors believe that submerging yourself underwater can trigger something called the “mammalian diving reflex” which helps slow down your heart rate and reduces inflammation caused by hangovers. Others believe it can also reduce stress levels which might help with headaches and other symptoms associated with hangovers.

Is it Safe?

This seems to be one of the trends on TikTok that is actually safe. After not having any alcohol for the month of January your body could be very mad at you for adding that wine again so keep this trend in mind the next day. What can go wrong? Just make sure you get a bowl big enough for your head.
