View Full Version : Puffy face, water retention?

For a long time I have been having a puffy face i think from water retention, and the other night I went out and had alcohol. The next morning my face looked so good and non-puffy, and I know it is because it is a diuretic and dehydrating (was drinking a lot of water before going to bed though) - SO my question is, next time I wake up non-puffy after drinking alcohol or drinking dandelion tea which has the same effect, can I “keep that face/look” if I for the following days eat clean, e.g. only veggies and fruits and avoid starches and sodium and drink lots of water? I know it sounds silly and overthinking, but I am just so tired of having that puffy face...

Try it and see what happens.

Yeah puffy face sucks! I notice this everytime I just stuff my face with food especially unhealthy ones (pizza, ramen) ones with a lot of sodium... when I return to a healthy diet with veggies, complex carbs, and meat it goes away
