Water is one of the main components of the human body, but its excess does not bring benefits. Excess water contributes to facial swelling and cellulite formation, says nutritionist Vira Kurin on her Instagram page.

Signs of excess fluid in the body

According to the expert, a person will never be able to lose weight if there is excess fluid in the body.

Signs indicating excess fluid in the body include:

  • Pear-shaped body type
  • Excess weight of 5-7 kg, no more
  • Low-calorie diets have no effect
  • Good shapes, soft body (skin)
  • Marks on the skin and body from tight clothing and underwear. As a rule, they do not disappear for a long time
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • No thirst, you don't want to drink water
  • You look younger than your age - no mimic wrinkles
  • At the sea or during rest, the skin tightens, and there is a reduction in weight
  • Unsuccessful fight against cellulite

How to remove excess fluid from the body

To remove excess fluid, it is necessary to follow these recommendations:

  • Improve blood circulation - avoid wearing too tight clothing and prolonged standing. Sleep with your legs on a small pillow.
  • Limit salt intake - try to avoid salty foods and reduce the amount of salt in your daily diet.
  • Sufficient water intake.
  • Physical exercises - body movement increases metabolic rate, stimulates blood circulation, and therefore improves fluid elimination. This can include walking, cycling, swimming, or fitness training.
  • Avoid alcohol - strong drinks containing alcohol contribute to dehydration and water retention in the body.

Additionally, certain medications, especially those for hypertension, diabetes, or some anti-inflammatory drugs, may also cause water retention.
