A puffy face with puffy eyes doesn't look too pretty. But simple procedures will help to cope with the problem by tightening the skin and restoring its tone. Use creams, homemade masks and wraps, and make small adjustments to your diet and rest.
The main cause of edema is fluid retention in the body. However, this does not mean that you need to drink less. On the contrary, clean water, green tea and freshly squeezed fruit juices will help the body regulate water balance. But it is better to refuse too salty food, smoked meats, strong coffee and carbonated drinks.
If you wake up with a puffy face, try changing your pillows. Choose taller and firmer ones. Give up the bad habit of sleeping with your face in the pillow - this will not only cause swelling, but also early wrinkles.
An excellent remedy for edema is contrast washing. It is better to do it in the morning - this procedure will help you wake up and quickly refresh the skin. Pour warm and cold water over your face alternately, ending with cold water. Pat dry your skin and apply a cooling moisturizer.
Rub ice cubes over your face and neck. They can be made from a decoction of herbs - chamomile, mint, sage. In winter, it is worth trying snow compresses. Wrap some clean snow in a linen napkin and apply forcefully to the forehead, cheeks, chin and upper neck.
Homemade masks based on fresh yeast or egg white will help tighten the skin. Whisk the protein, add some honey and a couple of drops of lemon juice to it. Apply the mixture to your face and neck for 10-15 minutes and then wash off with warm water. This procedure will shrink pores, make the skin fresh and firm. Try another recipe by mixing a spoonful of fresh yeast with warm milk. This mask removes flabbiness and visually tightens the contours of the face.
A good tool for express tightening is ready-made gel masks. They are stored in the refrigerator and applied to the eye area for 3-5 minutes. This mask can be replaced with cucumber slices, frozen tea bags, or simply chilled tablespoons.
Buy lifting creams and serums. For the day, a cream with caffeine is suitable - it relieves swelling well, makes the skin denser. In the evening, use products with plant peptides and amino acids - they regulate the amount of moisture in the skin, preventing the formation of swelling.
Pay attention to your makeup. A languid foundation or matte bronzer applied along the contour will help to visually tighten the face. The same remedy can be used to emphasize the area under the chin and the lower part of the cheekbones. Shade the product well to prevent it from staining. Use bb-creams with a lifting effect - they not only tone the face, but also plump and tone the skin.
