How to eliminate puffiness under eyes

How to eliminate puffiness under eyes

If the eyes are the window to the soul, you need to make sure they’re always looking their best. It can be difficult, however, if you’re dealing with dark circles and puffiness under eyes that age your complexion. A common issue that affects both men and women, puffiness can be difficult to treat. 

Treating under-eye puffiness begins with taking care of your skin and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Getting seven to eight hours of sleep every night is crucial for keeping signs of aging at bay. Another trick is to sleep with your head elevated on a pillow so you wake up with a refreshed and healthy complexion. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to prevent skin from becoming dry and showing signs of aging. 

Using an advanced anti-aging eye cream is another way to reduce the appearance of puffiness under eyes. The skin around the eyes is extremely delicate and must be treated daily to create a firmer and healthier appearance. An anti-aging eye cream contains ingredients that repair damaged cells while reducing the swelling and irritation that make under-eye bags stand out. 

For quick relief, there are several home remedies that temporarily restore youthful and healthy-looking eyes. Applying items such as cucumber slices, crushed mint leaves and chilled green tea bags directly to the eyes will brighten and refresh the area to minimize darkness. You can also hold a frozen spoon to the area to calm and cool stressed skin. 

By making simple changes to your routine, such as adding an anti-aging eye cream to your regimen or performing a weekly, relaxing eye treatment at home, you can reduce the look of dark under-eyes bags. What are some of your tried and true methods for minimizing puffiness under eyes? Let us know in the comments section.
