How can you tell a sweat from a hangover drip?
When you have a hangover, your body is trying to rid itself of the alcohol. This process creates sweat and a drip of liquid from the nose and mouth.
To tell the difference between sweat and drip hangovers, look for these signs:
– Sweat will be cold and wet. Hangover drips will be warm and dry.
– Sweat will be saltier than drip hangovers.
What causes hangover drip?
When you drink alcohol, it travels through your bloodstream and causes a decrease in blood flow to your brain. This is called hangover drip.
Hangover drip is caused by the combination of two factors: the amount of alcohol you drink and the time it takes for that alcohol to reach your brain. The more alcohol you drink, the quicker it will reach your brain and the greater the likelihood of developing hangover drip.
The best way to prevent hangover drip is to limit how much you drink and to drink slowly. If you do develop hangover drip, try drinking cold water or tea to reduce its severity.
