No one wants to look puffy, especially around their eyes. Many of my clients have asked me how they can look less puffy on those mornings after they have enjoyed a lavish dinner or a few glasses of wine.
That is why I have researched and tested the best ways to avoid puffiness in your face. Puffiness is a common problem, but it doesn’t have to be. There are simple things you can do to reduce water retention and give your skin back its youthful glow.
Here are my Top 5 Tips for Avoiding Puffiness in Your Face:
Eat Potassium Rich Foods
Many people don’t realize that potassium is an essential element of healthy skin. This mineral is necessary for keeping cells hydrated and maintaining an optimal level of electrolytes. Potassium will internally moisturize your skin and improve the flow of your internal fluids. Avocado, low-fat yogurts, dried apricots, cantaloupe, bananas, cooked beans, bran cereals, prunes, almonds, and winter squash are all excellent choices.
Eat Foods that Prevent Water Retention
The puffiness in your face is usually caused by water retention. Fortunately, there are some delicious all-natural foods like salmon, tuna, carrots, celery, cucumber, onions, peppers, melons, and oranges that will act as a diuretic and prevent fluid from accumulating under your skin. Surprisingly, water can also help reduce retention, since the bloating is a sign that your body has too much salt and not enough fluid to flush it out.
Use a Cooling Face Mask
Applying an all-natural cold face mask, gel-filled masks, chilled tea bag, or a simple cold cloth will help to reduce water retention and decrease the inflammation in your face.
Facial Massage to Reduce Puffiness
Getting a face massage is a great way to decrease puffiness since it stimulates the nerves in your face. Awakening these nerves will reduce the puffiness in your face by decreasing the swelling and bloating.
Facial Exercises to Rejuvenate Cells
Every part of your body needs exercise to look its best. Your face is filled with muscles, and exercise is necessary to keep them tight and toned. Facial exercises will rejuvenate your skin cells and reduce inflammation.
Try these five simple steps to avoid puffiness and you’ll notice a difference almost instantly. If puffiness isn’t your biggest skincare issue, please contact me for a personal consultation. I always look forward to helping my readers improve the look and feel of their skin.
