This award season, Jennifer Lawrence continues to shine on the red carpet. With multiple award shows — and time zones — now under her belt, it's a wonder that the starlet remains looking so fresh-faced and poised. To find out how Jennifer is staying healthy amid the award-show circuit, we went straight to her trainer Dalton Wong.
- Hydrate the right way: Late nights, Champagne toasts, and indulgent meals can leave even the most glamorous Hollywood stars looking a little tired. "Staying hydrated is vital and so important for training and also looking good on the red carpet," says Dalton. The trainer says that Jennifer starts each day with warm water with lemon, and continues to sip on water with added liquid chlorophyll to help keep her body balanced. To keep Jennifer from looking bloated in those body-hugging gowns, Dalton recommends that she drink peppermint tea. Toget in those quality Zs, Jennifer ends the night with a cup of soothing chamomile.
- Travel cures: "Flying across different time zones can really make you hold onto excess water," says Dalton. To ensure Jennifer never looks puffy, she drinks dandelion tea to help reduce water retention, and eats asparagus, a natural diuretic. Dalton also advised Jennifer to take a warm epsom-salt bath the night before a big event. Many believe that epsom salts helps to draw out toxins from the body and also soothe tired muscles.
- Posture makes perfect: Standing up tall is so important when you're on the red carpet. "By improving posture, you get an instant 'feel-good factor.' It also makes you look thinner," says Dalton. The trainer has worked closely with Jennifer on exercises and stretches to help improve her posture and says that "shoulders back, chest up, and tummy slight drawn in equals an instant boob lift plus tummy flattener."
