What is the cause of “swelling of the face”? what’s going on inside
Have you ever had the experience of waking up in the morning and looking in the mirror and being surprised that your face was swollen?
In the first place, swelling (edema) refers to a state in which extra water accumulates in the body and the water between cells has increased abnormally.
Swelling may be caused by decreased blood or lymph flow.
If you drink too much alcohol or eat too much salty food, your blood vessels will dilate and your veins and lymph nodes will not be able to properly process the water in your body, making it easier for you to swell. This is why you feel your face becomes more swollen the day after drinking alcohol.
As a solution, first of all, refrain from excessive alcohol, salt, and water. In addition, it is also effective to have a massage that activates the flow of blood and lymph!

■ Procedure for temporomandibular joint massage

. It will be easier to locate the temporomandibular joints if you open your mouth halfway.
2 Massage about 30 times in a small circular motion from front to back
By stimulating the temporomandibular joints, you should be able to relieve tension and feel your entire face lighten. In addition, it activates the flow of lymph along the face line, and the swelling of the face is refreshed, so you can expect a small face effect!
