Puffy Eyes Home Remedies

Here you will find a good cure for puffy eyes and swollen eyelids, as well as some simple puffy eyes home remedies that can be made at home.

Puffy eyes can be a chronic annoyance for many people who seem to wake up with them all the time. Fortunately, they are a simple problem to fix and can be alleviated in a pinch.

The first step is to understand why you are having a problem with swollen eyes. The most natural reason it happens is for a lack of sleep. If this is you, getting proper rest will solve the problem. If it is a medical issue, you may simply be suffering an allergic reaction.

Alcohol is the second most common reason that people get puffy eyes.

Excessive drinking can cause fluid retention in the body and result in puffiness and bloating. If you think this may be the cause of your problem, cut back.

If a lack of sleep or excess alcohol doesn't make sense for your lifestyle, there are some things you can do to treat the problem on a case-by-case basis.

The first and most obvious is to use cucumber slices for at least twenty minutes. Make sure your cucumber has been refrigerated and is sliced into thin pieces. The cool temperature and hydrating water should help if you have enough time to spare.

How to Reduce Puffy Eyes Using Tea

Another method is to use wet, chilled tea bags. Place them over your eyes and leave on for twenty to thirty minutes. If you have dark circles accompanying your puffy eyes, you may want to try using chilled cut apples. If left on long enough, apples can take away the darkness under your eyes as well.

For many people, puffy eyes can be a constant battle. If you think fluid retention may be the culprit, try eating foods that help with this problem. Bananas and raisins are known for helping to relieve bloat, and will reduce swollen eyes.

Another way to help is to make sure your body is properly hydrated. Commit to drinking eight glasses of water per day and consume electrolytes during and after your daily workouts. Lastly, avoid eating too many salty foods as this can drain the water from your body.

Many people swear by sleeping on their backs with faces turned towards the ceiling as the best puffy eyes home remedies. You may find that it is easier for swellings to drain and collapse this way.

Soothing organic herbal teas can also help with water retention and the overall health of your body. This is something you should get in a habit of doing, as prevention is the best method against soreness and swelling in the body.
