Most days we don’t wake up with the perfect morning glow or energy to start a brand new day, sometimes it’s the opposite we wake up feeling tired, stressed and to top it all off, our face looks like it’s been through it.
Why do I wake up with a puffy face?
There are many reasons. Facial puffiness is caused by allergies, hypertension, dental problems, hormonal issues or your lifestyle. It is very common that people who don't drink enough water, drink alcohol, eat too much salt or stay awake late, often wake up with a puffy face.
One other reason, and very common one, is the position we sleep and the way we put our face in the pillow. Usually there is too much pressure against it for several hours at night and causes water retention.
What can I do if I wake up with my puffy face?
The best kept secret for that situation is coffee and we don’t mean to drink too many cups of it to keep us awake, but to make a mask to reduce bloat and one that works very fast.
Coffee has a lot of benefits like stimulating blood flow, that’s why it is the favorite ingredient of exfoliators, by the way, it works wonderfully for cellulitis too. It has antioxidants and removes dead cells, so your face is going to look smooth and glowing.
What you’ll need:
2 Tbsp of ground coffee
2 Tbsp of natural yogurt
1 Tbsp of honey
Mix the coffee grounds and honey in a small bowl until they form a paste, add only 1 tablespoon of yogurt, if it's not enough to form an even texture add one more.
Clean up your face very well and apply the mask with a brush or use your fingers.
Let it set for 10 minutes and wash it off with cold water, rubbing your face gently in circular motions to stimulate circulation.
