When you wake up to puffy under-eyes and eyelids or facial contour, chances are there is a case of chronic water retention which occurs when excess fluids build up inside your body. Fluid retention or edema can happen to the face as water retention occurs in the circulatory system or within tissues and cavities.
What causes the puffiness?
Diet and lifestyle habits including dehydration, eating an excessive amount of salty foods and refined carbohydrates, lack of good restful sleep and exercise also lead to poor blood and fluid circulation in the body.
Other contributing factors include hormonal fluctuations (prior to the menstrual period, pregnancy), or when taking oral contraceptives can cause the bloat. As kidneys are the primary organs responsible for the body’s water balance, any fluid retention could mean there is possibly a problem with this part of the body.
