Getting 8 hours of beauty sleep is the holy grail for fresh-looking eyes and I-woke-up-like-this skin, but we know real life (and maybe Netflix) tends to get in the way.
But with some good habits in place, we can always fool everyone into thinking we got our 8 hours of quality rest. Read on for some useful tips to reduce undereye puffiness:
Watch the salt
When you consume salt, your body holds on to water to maintain a balanced ratio. But when you over-consume salt, this results in fluid retention, that can result in puffy eyes.
To make the transition easier, try replacing salt with herbs to keep what you eat healthy yet flavourful!
Not drinking enough water can make your body store up water, which in turn – and ironically – leads to fluid retention.
So stay on top of your water intake – you can set reminders on your phone to remind yourself to hydrate or download water intake tracking apps such as Waterlogged or Fitbit.
Cut back on the booze
Alcohol lowers the level of anti-diuretic hormones – which tell your kidneys how much water to conserve – in your body. Your body then tries to compensate for this temporary dehydration by retaining fluid, resulting in unwanted puffy eyes.
Fortunately, this is temporary though, but if you do have an important social event or business meeting the next day, keep this in mind!
If your peepers still need an extra boost, try an eye cream containing peptides that works to reduce undereye puffiness.
Radiofrequency facials help too in reducing mild undereye puffiness and stimulating collagen production – and you might just get an extra hour of snooze during that 1 hour of treatment!
