Home Remedies for Puffy Eyes

PUFFY EYES: Puffy eyes is a condition in which the skin under the eyes becomes puffed or swallowed. 

CAUSE: Swelling of eyes occurs due to various factors like trapping of fluid in eye tissue, accumulation of fat in the skin beneath the eyes, stress, hormonal changes, allergy, high blood pressure, dermatitis or sinus, aging, less consumption of water, long term use of antibiotics or use of excessive salt.

Home Remedies for Puffy Eyes:

Now, i am not going to repeat some common ways like drinking 8-10 glasses of water, taking proper sleep and so on. I am actually going to explain what you can really do about your eyes puffiness.

Cold Water: Splash icy cold water on your face to reduce the puffiness in your eyes.

Spoon Method: Another effective way to get rid of puffiness in eyes is to use cold spoon.
Place spoon in fridge or freezer for sometime and once it's cold enough, take it and place it on your both eyes. This will sooth your eyes and reduce puffiness.

Sodium: Yes, this may sound weird but sodium does usually cause puffiness in your eyes. Especially when you take high amount of it or take it before going to sleep. So, what you should really avoid is to have huge amount of sodium in your diet.

Cucumber: Cucumber has always been very helpful in soothing eyes and improving their ability. Take two slices of cucumber and place them on your eyes for sometime. This will give you relief from puffiness.

Potato: Use of potato slices on eyes is also very common. Take two slices of potatoes and place them on your eyes. This will help in reducing puffiness.

Eye Exercise: Doing some exercise with eyes is also very helpful in increasing the blood flow around your eye. And this will automatically reduce the puffiness.

  • Hold a pencil in front of the face. Concentrate on it and slowly move the pencil further and further away from the face, while still looking at it. Bring the pencil back slowly and repeat this move.
  • Look out of the window as far as you can see. This is a very good exercise for the eyes.
