Help For Under Eye Puffiness

What are some great helpers for under eye puffiness? something that really works where you get an immediate result.

Camille's Answer:

Hi Lawanda. Under eye puffiness is really either a build up of fluids caused by allergies, overall water retention or a collection fat accentuated by thinning skin.

If your puffiness is caused by allergies, sleep deprivation or water retention you can help it go down by doing the following things.

1. Put damp (cool) herbal tea bags over your eyes for 15 minutes while you lie back and relax.

2. Use a gel eye mask (the ones that make you look like Zorro) that's been in the freezer over your eyes for about half an hour.

3. Take allergy medicne.

4. Drink a lot of water to help your body release excess water (or take a diuretic).

5. Get eight hours of sleep a night.

If your bags are caused by thinning skin and accumulations of fat, you should consult with a cosmetic surgeon about possible ways to remove the extra fat.

Hope this helps.
