July 29th, 2013
Salty foods, preservatives, alcohol, coffee and basically anything that will cause lymphatic congestion can cause bloating. What to do? I have a few tips that can make your face look thinner, such as reducing bloating and instant face-tightening effects.
Feeling Bloated and Puffy…What Kind of Skin Tips Can Make Your Face Look a Little Slimmer?
Drink Green Tea For An Anti-Aging Effect
If you want to de-puff your face I think the best place to begin is by drinking green tea instead of coffee. Drinking between two and four cups a day makes you burn an extra 50 calories even at rest! The extra water will make your body and skin will feel hydrated and will flush out your system while the polyphenols will help to attack fat cells and protect the skin against free radical damage.
An old fashion trick and something you almost never hear about these days of high tech skincare is the use of cucumber slices. Resting a pair of cucumber slices on your tired eyes will help de-puff them and make them look rested and youthful.
This old school trick works and the silica in the cucumber will help with elasticity.
I recommend eating greens for every meal – this will super de-puff you even on the same day. Vegetables and fruits have a high water content and will help keep your body hydrated.
Additionally, eating organic foods will help to eliminate overly processed foods from your diet. Process foods contains lots of preservatives, one of them being sodium or salt, which causes water retention and thus puffy skin.
I recommend my own Daily Serum as is super de-puffing because it contains oat grass juice, which has potassium and magnesium which stimulates the lymphatic system.
Lastly, in an article I found in Livestrong.com the following comment was made as to why you might have a puffy face or bloating skin. “make a list of prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take to help your doctor determine if a drug allergy could be the cause of your puffy face. Medications such as aspirin, penicillin, sulfa and glucocorticoids can, according to Medline Plus, cause allergic reactions that result in a puffy face.”
As always, I look forward to seeing you at the salon where you will be dazzled by how great your skin looks.
