Splash your face with cold water to reduce redness and puffiness. Fill your bathroom sink with cold water and toss in 15 ice cubes. Pour one-third of a cup of natural, alcohol-free witch hazel into the water and dunk! Repeat this for about five to ten times.
Why? Cold ❄️ temperatures shrink capillaries and stimulate drainage while witch hazel has natural anti-inflammatory, puffiness-reducing properties.
How does dehydration effect your skin? It depletes water and antioxidants out of the skin and also increases blood flow and dilates blood vessels, causing redness and puffiness.
Use hydrating ingredients to put water back into your thirsty skin cells. Most people think they need to over-moisturize by layering on a heavy, greasy cream, but really the focus needs to be about putting water back in the skin, not oil, since alcohol depletes mostly the water.
