Puffy Eyes - How To Get Rid of Puffy Eyes By Home Remedies

Skin around and under your eyes are the thinnest and most sensitive of your body. Puffiness or fullness of the skin under the eyes can be due to a number of causes. This may include changes in your body's fluid balance such as due to weather changes, travel or hormone fluctuations. If itching or redness accompanies the puffiness, it may be due to an allergy or dermatitis.

Symptoms of puffy eyes

  • Inability to closing or opening of the eyes is most common symptom of puffy eyes.
  • Itching eyes.
  • Swollen eyelid.
  • Puffy eyelids.

Causes of puffy eyes

  • Hangovers can also produce puffy eyes.
  • It can be a heredity problem.
  • Changes in your body's fluid balance such as due to weather changes, travel or hormone fluctuations.
  • Lack of sleep may also results in puffy eyes.

Home remedies to get rid of puffy eyes.

  • Thin cucumber slices used as compresses over closed eyes will relieve sore, puffy eyes.
  • Lie in a quiet room down for 15 minutes, with either a slice of raw potato or cucumber over your eyes, or cotton wool pads soaked in witch hazel (which reduces swelling) or iced water. Your eyes will sparkle and any puffiness will magically disappear.
  • Make sure you get enough sleep.
  • Cucumber contains anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness and puffiness of eyes. Slice a large cucumber, reserve two slices to place over eyes. Peel and puree the remaining cucumber. This can be applied as a pack onto your face. Remove after fifteen minutes. Apply moisturizer thickly to seal in water.
  • Try taking a few egg whites, stiffly beaten, with a drop of witch hazel and apply with a brush under the eyes to make the skin feel tighter and look less puffy.
  • Drinking enough water will also reduce eye puffiness. When a person is dehydrated the body starts storing water as a defense system and this will add to puffiness around the eyes.
