St. Patrick's Day is this Sunday, and that means it's time to celebrate all things Irish and green.
There are plenty of ways to get into the Irish spirit, whether it's listening to Celtic music (or maybe some Van Morrison or The Pogues), learning to Riverdance (or some semblance of a jig), cooking up potatoes, cabbage and stew and of course, dressing in green. But for us LUSHies, it's no surprise that our favorite way to celebrate is in the tub. Shamrocks may bring good luck, but we've got just the right treats to bring good bathing fortunes.
A warm, fragrant bath makes us happier than a leprechaun who's found a pot of gold. So we'll be sure to start the day off right and have a beautiful green bath to launch us into the day. With fragrant lemongrass to wake up your mind and fresh avocado to soften skin, Avobath Bath Bomb is a perfect choice for morning bathing in festive waters. Pair it with a shimmering Sunnyside bubble bar and your bath will glitter with gold.
If you prefer soaking in mountains of fluffy bubbles, crumble up a Green Bubbleroon under running water and wake up to the scent of citrusy lime and orange oils. Floral fragrance lovers will certainly find happiness at the end of the Dorothy bubble bar rainbow, even if there isn't a pot of gold!
Once you've bathed and found your greenest outfit, it's time to bring out your eyes! ...

Not only have you dazzled your co-workers with the Robot, Running Man, and your Gangnam style (all while wearing a lampshade), you've also shown extreme skill in emptying the punch bowl and now you're paying for it the next day. You lay in bed (still wearing the lampshade), the room is spinning, your head is pounding, and your stomach is rocking like a hurricane. What have you done?
The nausea, dizziness, headache and fatigue are caused by a combination of dehydration, vitamin depletion, and the toxicity of the alcohol. That's how you did it to yourself. With a name like LUSH, we really know how to celebrate; here are our recommendations to survive the dreaded hangover during party season.
Start with self-pity. Yes, you're the one to blame, and your party with the punchbowl and lampshade may be regrettable, but be kind to yourself and allow a whimper or two to make the pain easier to handle. Calling in sick may not be an option after showcasing your sweet dance moves to your entire office, but if you can, stay in bed for the day. Rest and sleep are essential to your recovery.
PLENTY OF FLUIDS
The symptoms you're feeling are signs of dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic as your frequent trips to the bathroom can attest. Rehydrating your poor body is the key. Avoid water that is too hot or too cold; room temperature water is best. Drinking water between drinks is also a great way to prevent the horror of the morning-after. You can also replenish your fluids with fruit juice. Alcohol depletes much-needed vitamins and juice can help restore and give y...
