It’s an all too common tale: You indulge in a salt-heavy dinner or a few sugary cocktails, and you wake up to puffy, dull, congested skin. (No? Just me?) When you need to deflate puffiness in a pinch, consider chamomile tea your new best friend: “Steep the tea bags in hot water, take them out until they cool, and put one on each eye for 10 minutes,” Vargas shares. “You will look refreshed and de-puffed!”
As for a dull, dehydrated complexion, she recommends applying your skin care products in an upward motion to stimulate circulation, thus delivering oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells and offering a healthy, lit-from-within radiance. It’s why facialists (Vargas included) might perform a facial massage if you have an event, since stimulating blood flow provides an immediate glow.
