The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration, and perhaps a bit of indulgence. However, that extra slice of cake or glass of champagne can leave you feeling less than festive the next day.

Sugar can cause inflammation, salt can contribute to water retention, and alcohol can dehydrate your body, creating the perfect storm for a post-party puffiness.
In this guide, we'll explore some practical tips to depuff and recover after your next festive gathering.
