19 Dec The Three Cardinal Rules Of The Jaime Carson Winter Hydration Equation
The weather outside is frightful but your skin can be oh so delightful.
By following the three cardinal rules of the Jaime Carson Winter Hydration Equation, you can keep the winter freeze outside.
1. Hydrate on the inside to glow on the outside.
During the cold weather, you may find yourself drinking more dehydrating beverages throughout the day to warm yourself up such as hot cocoa, coffee, black tea, a shot of tequila and the seasonal pumpkin spice latte. Always add a cup of water for every dehydrating drink (see below for the Jaime Carson Hydration math Equation). For bonus points, keep sliced lemon in a ziplock bag near you and drink 6 to 8 glasses of water with lemon throughout the day. The lemon will help to gently detoxify your body and the water will replenish lost moisture. Not only will you have more energy, but you will notice your skin looking smooth and clear.
2. Moisturize your skin on the outside morning and night.
Look for ingredients such as Ceramides and Hylauronic Acid when choosing a winter-time facial moisturizer. These ingredients are essentially the winter coat for your skin keeping moister in and protecting it from the cold, wind and dryness that the winter weather brings with it.
3. Sleep with a humidifier.
While indoor heating keeps our body temperature nice and toasty its drying to the skin which can cause us to wake up each morning noticing flakiness and fine lines. By sleeping with a humidifier you are replenishing moisture into the air where you are sleeping and will wake up with that a fresh morning glow. No more haggard morning face!
Bonus: for all you math geeks out there, here is the Jaime Carson hydration equation:
So if you weigh 130 lbs. the equation would be: 130/2=75 ounces = 9.5 cups
Note: for every dehydrating beverage you consume (e.g., coffee, alcohol, black tea, etc.) you should add an additional glass of water (eight ounces) to your daily total.
