Puffy eyes can occur for several reasons and occasionally be fixed with a good nights rest or the relief of allergies. However, sometimes the issue lies much deeper and can require a more thorough solution to completely reduce, and even cure, your puffy eyes.
What are the causes of puffy eyes?
If you have ever looked closely at the skin around your eyes, you’ll notice how thin it is compared to the rest of your facial skin. Since this is the case, it’s much easier for visible puffiness and discoloration to stick out in this area.
Typically, the accumulation of fluids - also known as edema - may gather in this area for one or more of the following reasons:
- Lack of sleep
- Excessive salt intake
- Inherited trait
Additionally, puffy eyes can occur more frequently upon waking up in the morning due to the fact that blinking doesn’t take place while we sleep. As soon as you wake up and start to blink, the fluids will more likely be moved away from the eye area, resulting in slightly less puffy eyes.
What can I do to reduce puffy eyes?
It’s not uncommon to want to take action against your puffy eyes, and there are several solutions you can begin doing to lessen this problem. It is important to note, however, that by first identifying the underlying cause of your puffy eyes you can take the most effective solution against them.
Some solutions to reducing or eliminating puffy eyes can include:
- Sleeping between 7-8 hours per night
- Drinking water
- Decreasing your salt
- Utilizing eye drops or allergy medication (if allergies are the cause)
- Placing Cucumbers or tea bags over your eyes
- Applying creams specifically designed for the eye area
