When your eyes and the region under your eyes are puffy and swollen you will look tired and unhealthy. There are several factors that contribute to the puffiness under your eyes.
Though most people believe that lack of sleep is the only contributing factor it is not true. An improper diet, lack of nutrition and vitamins in your system will lead to puffiness under the eyes.
Fortunately there are several natural treatments that one can use to get rid of this condition. Beware most cosmetic creams and lotions will claim to improve the condition of your skin and restore its youthfulness however they do not show any improvements.
Here are a few natural treatments that you can try to reduce the puffiness under your eyes.
Start by splashing cold water on your eyes. This will reduce the redness in your eyes and show a marked difference in the swelling in the under eye region.
You could also try placing 2 spoons in the fridge for a few minutes and then place them on your eyes until they return to room temperature. Cold treatment is beneficial for your skin if it is showing signs of swelling as a result of water retention.
Drinking warm green tea is also beneficial if you are showing signs of swelling and puffiness in your under eye region. Green tea will remove all the toxins from your body and this will automatically result in reduced swelling under your eyes.
In addition to green tea you must increase the amount of water you intake daily as dehydration can also lead to swelling under the eyes. You must also drink plenty of fresh fruit juices; cranberry and orange juice is most beneficial as the vitamins that they offer your body will be extremely beneficial.
If you suffer from swelling and puffiness under the eyes constantly then you must massage the under eye region with warm olive oil or almond oil every night before you go to sleep. Massage the oil with your finger tips in circular movements; this will improve the blood circulation in the area and will reduce the swelling naturally.
