Whether or not any of those conditions apply to you, it’s almost inevitable that at some point in your life you’ll wake up with a puffy face. We’ve compiled a list of five ways to reduce facial puffiness in the morning so your skin will look refreshed and awake. Keep reading to see our tips.
How to De-Puff Your Face
Drink More Water Throughout the Day
One of the most common reasons your skin might look puffy when you wake up in the morning is because you’re not drinking enough water! Make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day and try to drink at least 8 glasses of water each and every day. Keep a glass of water next to your bed to sip as soon as you wake up in the morning.
Avoid Excessive Salt Intake
Salty foods might taste good, but they could be the culprit for a swollen, puffy face in the morning. Foods high in sodium, like pizza, burgers, pizza or sushi cause the body to retain more water, which would explain a puffy face. If you can’t resist a salty snack (we’ve all been there) try not to eat them late at night.
Use an Under Eye Mask to Get Rid of Dark Circles and Puffy Undereyes
Instead of using concealer, try an undereye mask to target the problem instead of covering it up.

Give Yourself a Facial Massage
