It’s getting cold and I’m starting to get inquiries about products that help keep moisture in harsh cold conditions.
IT’S NOT WHAT YOU PUT ON, IT’S WHAT YOU DIDN’T PUT IN!
We all forget to drink enough water when it’s cold outside. Dehydration trends among people of all ages are at their highest in the holiday season. We increase the sodium in our diets and partake in punches and cocktails when we would normally have water. It’s common, it’s not the worst thing in the world so don’t you dare feel bad about it. So here’s what you do:
1. Start and End the day with a full glass of water.- We’re grown now, so drinking water before bed is not a recipe for disaster and it will give you an appointment with your water. If you make it a habit you can avoid missing out completely.
2. Switch from coffee to tea in the winter. I’ll never try to separate a woman on the go and her caffeine, but the tea will ease you into remembering to get some water. Preparing the hot water gives you a chance to refill your cold water bottle.
3. Drink room temperature water. Sometimes it’s too cold for an ice-cold water. Enjoying your water at room temp in the cold months means that you’re not drinking stale tasting hot water and you’re not causing your body temp to drop with a cold beverage.
Trust me when I tell you, you’ll notice the difference in your hair if you concentrate on how much you hydrate.
As always ask question when it stops making sense. Enjoy!
