Sometimes we all allow ourselves a little extra (especially during the holidays). And that’s okay! That’s just a reflection in the mirror can spoil the mood. To help the body get rid of excess fluid and regain your face, use one of these methods (or better, all at once).
We love our readers. We also love cool stuff! So that you do not get lost in the vast world of beauty products, we select on the portal only what we have tried ourselves or would buy for ourselves.
Take care of your skin
Let’s start the program of getting rid of edema with the most pleasant – from the shower. Excess fluid accumulates throughout the body. To quickly return to normal, it is necessary to establish microcirculation. The easiest way to do this is to use a fragrant scrub.
Our choice – Blizzful scrubs. They have incredibly pleasant fragrances that improve mood and turn the bath procedure into a real pleasure. Blizzful salt scrubs stimulate blood flow, remove excess fluid, restore skin tone and elasticity. And anti-cellulite evens out the relief, brightens stretch marks and energizes.
Use the right makeup
Clarins V Shaping Facial Lift
Let’s move on to the face. Cosmetologists have long calculated the components that solve the problem of edema. Moreover, they are effective both with regular and single use. Do not be lazy – look at the composition of the decongestant serum, mask or gel before buying.
What should be there? First of all, components that improve microcirculation. The most popular are caffeine, niacinamide, vitamin C, green tea, centella, peptides (acetyl tetrapeptide-5). If nothing worthwhile was found, take a cucumber out of the refrigerator or cool the tea bags – yes, this is the “grandmother’s method”, but without fish …
Librederm, hyaluronic gel patch
Hydrogel or fabric stickers are the easiest way to revitalize the area around the eyes. Put the patches in the refrigerator before use: a chilled compress fights swelling better. Wear them exactly as long as prescribed in the instructions (the “the longer the better” scheme does not work here).
Look for patches marked “from edema” – they will contain components that improve microcirculation, such as caffeine. Yes, chamomile patches can also reduce swelling, but to effectively solve the problem, it is better to look for a remedy with a directed action.
Get a massage
FOREO, BEAR mini Microcurrent Massager
It is possible to improve blood circulation and lymph outflow without cosmetics. And even without special gadgets. But with them it will be easier and better. For example, microcurrent massagers give an almost instant lifting effect, improve the penetration of the same decongestant serums.
Less innovative, but still working jade rollers, gouache plates will also work (cool them before use). The main thing is to move along the massage lines. Any properly performed massage will give a lymphatic drainage effect, even if you just knead the skin with your fingers.
The best remedy for swelling is a classic headstand. This inverted position ensures blood flow and lymph redistribution. If acrobatics is not in the plans, do the usual forward bends, a birch tree or a dog face down – any position in which the pelvis is above the head.
Any physical activity will help – some beauty gurus advise jumping rope. You can also do classic school exercises with head and body tilts, squats, lunges.
Eat diuretic foods
Watermelon comes to mind first, but it’s not easy to get it out of season. But in almost every home first aid kit there is thyme, calendula, mint, oregano, chamomile. These herbs also have a diuretic effect, and some have pleasant “side effects” in the form of normalizing digestion and eliminating headaches.
Look in the refrigerator for fresh cucumbers, parsley, beets, celery, grapes, grapefruit, pomelo, tangerines – they will all help to remove excess fluid. Cranberry juice, green tea, chicory are good drinks.
