Why So Salty? How to Get Rid of Bags Under Eyes and Puffy Eyes

how-to-get-rid-of-bags-under-eyes-and-puffy-eyes

Consuming foods with high levels of salt is linked to under-eye bags.

What comes to mind when you read the word “micronutrient”? To most, it’s a foreign word, but to the nutritional community it refers to crucial vitamins and minerals that every human needs in order to function and survive.

Common salt contains sodium, which is a micronutrient essential for human life. But it’s a double-edged sword. Consume too little salt, and you could experience headaches, nausea, muscle cramps, and worse, potentially life-threatening conditions. Consume too much salt, and you’ll experience blood pressure, edema, loss of calcium, and a whole host of other conditions that can also be potentially life-threatening.

Over Indulgence in Salt = Bags Under Eyes

In the beauty realm, excess salt intake is known to cause the body to retain water and bloat, which affects your under eye appearance.

So what’s a person to do? First, examine your diet by recalling what you consumed and referring to the nutrition facts to determine the culprit. Seriously, you have no excuse… Smart phones have made it absurdly easy to track macronutrients and micronutrients with apps like My Fitness Pal, Loseit, Sparkpeople, etc.

It’s also known that processed foods tend to contain too much sodium. Be aware that the frozen food section of your grocer is laced with higher levels of sodium in order to preserve the food for longer periods of time. Additionally, fatty meats, canned beans, and other foods you may not expect can contain high amounts of salt.

So are you serious about getting rid of those puffy eyes? Really serious? Your first step should be to prepare fresh, home-cooked meals.

After that, if you find that salt has still stolen your glow, give these home remedies a try:

  • Drink water. Salt causes the body to be dehydrated which leads to water retention. To de-bloat and de-bag, drink plenty of water.
  • Eat potassium-rich foods. Bananas, avocados, spinach, sweet potato, coconut water, yogurt and other potassium-rich foods will reduce water retention.
  • Drink a diuretic such as no-sugar-added cranberry juice. Cranberry juice will help your body pass excess sodium and water.
  • Apply cool cucumber slices or tea bags over the eyes for 20 minutes daily. The combination of cool + vitamins soothes the skin and reduces swelling of fragile under-eye skin.
  • You can also apply chilled spoons or frozen bags of peas if you’re in a real time-crunch. If you can’t find 20 minutes per day, how about 5 minutes? We know everyone can manage that. Your eyes will respond to the TLC, we promise. 🙂

Most importantly….for Eye’s sake, put down the salt! Also let everyone know in the comments what other life hacks you have for treating under-eye bags!

An Open Letter to Skin

an-open-letter-to-skin

quotation-mark

They say you should love the skin you’re in.

I am covered in you. You’ve been with me since the beginning of my time. We’ve felt fresh rain drops, we’ve experienced uncomfortable peeling, we grew from pea size to full grown adult, we have been cut, scraped, and bled. We have felt the pain from needles and burns but also felt a loving touch and kisses. We have been through everything together.

To the skin I call “home,” I have been a terrible tenet. I’ve picked, pulled, popped, antagonized, and irritated you. I’ve disrespected you and didn’t think twice. From leaving you unprotected and vulnerable in the sun to neglecting moisturizers, I feel guilty.

As I look back at photos of us, I get a sudden nostalgia. The supple yet firm, clear, undamaged glow is something I relentlessly search for at the bottom of a product bottle; I wish instead I had tended to your needs since day one.

Life is about moving forward. As badly as I wish to reverse my careless ways, I must press on with thoughtful decisions with you in mind.

I only get one you. I will learn ways to keep you healthy. Above all, I will be kind to you. Skin, I see and feel you constantly. It’s time for me to start demonstrating my appreciation for you. I vow to put in the work to see you thrive for the years to come.

Here’s to our newfound journey: the skin project.

LED light therapy is the first step I will take to make sure you’re feeling better than ever. I’ve seen the results; light therapy is medically proven and I know what it can do for us. Red, Amber, and Infrared LED lights will erase the times we spent outside without UV protection. Blue LED lights will destroy the bad bacteria burrowed in your glands to reveal a clearer you. In addition to the lights, I vow to apply moisturizer, sun block, and get enough rest so that you may repair and regenerate healthy cells for a more radiant you. I know this will take time. Nothing is overnight.

But one thing is for sure. I love the skin I’m in, and I will do everything in my power to keep you healthy.
