Why You Might Want to Skip the Salty Snacks Before Bed

We've all been there—you're lying in bed, ready to drift off to sleep after a long day, when you suddenly remember that you didn't eat dinner because you were too busy binge-watching your latest Netflix obsession. So what do you do? You rummage through your pantry for something quick and easy to snack on before bed. But beware—those late-night salty snacks can come back to haunt you in the form of unsightly under-eye puffiness come morning.

While there's no need to completely cut salt out of your diet (after all, it's an essential nutrient), it is important to be mindful of your sodium intake. That's because foods that are high in sodium can cause fluid retention, which can lead to under-eye puffiness. So next time you're reaching for a late-night snack, opt for something that's low in sodium instead. Some good options include whole grain toast with peanut butter or a bowl of air-popped popcorn. And if you're really craving something salty, go for pretzels instead of potato chips—they have about one-third of the sodium content.

If you find yourself snacking late at night more often than you'd like to admit, try opting for something that's low in sodium—your eyes will thank you come morning.
