There are many reasons for having dark circles and puffy eyes that make us look older and worn out.
Apart from tears, there are other reasons why the body accumulates and retains fluids under the eyes: tiredness, allergies, salty foods and even menstruation in the case of women.
Therefore, sometimes that unattractive swelling is fortunately only temporary, but swollen eyes can also be a product of age.
As we age, the muscles under our eyes weaken and the skin loses elasticity.
Fat tissues pass through and around weakened muscles, and this swelling is aggravated at times due to fatigue, allergies and other temporary influences.
Most people with puffy eyes were using makeup and other cosmetic products just to cover the puffiness. Cosmetic products can temporarily cover dark bags, but it has no ability to remove the appearance of dark bags underneath the eyes.
Natural remedies were still the best alternatives in treating and preventing several health issues including puffy eyes. The appearance of dark bags can be permanently eliminated using these natural ways.
1. Put on a cold compress.
To do this, you should soak a rag in cold water (or wrap some ice cubes in a towel) and put on your eyelids. When the canvas warms up, squeeze and repeat the remedy. Do it three or four times.
2. Put a teaspoon in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
Apply, once cold, under the eyes for about 10 or 20 minutes first thing in the morning.
3. Put a previously washed cucumber in the refrigerator.
After a few minutes and once cool, cut into slices and apply several on the swollen area under the eyes. Leave on until heated.
4. Apply wet and cold chamomile tea bags for about 10 to 20 minutes.
(First you will need to squeeze excess water.) Chamomile narrows blood vessels and is has an effect that helps minimize swelling of the eyes, Note: You should only take one warning into account: if you have a pollen allergy, It is possible that flowers rich in pollen from chamomile cause reaction, even in the form of tea. If so, or if this remedy worsens the condition of your eyes instead of improving it, avoid it or stop applying it.
Recommendations for puffy eyes:
1. Sleeping long enough.
Get enough sleep, that is, between six and eight hours each night.
2. Avoid salty foods and alcohol.
Eating a lot of salty foods (eg, potatoes and pickles) and drinking alcohol will keep liquids, which can accumulate in the eye area (and other parts of the body).
3. Do not carve under the eyes.
In doing so, your eyes will become irritated, red and swollen.
