Puffiness Under Eyes – Is It Temporary or Long-Term Ghastly Nightmare?

By Michelle Craig

You do not need to take puffiness under eyes for granted. If you awaken each morning to this look, you can do something about it. The first movement in this battle against puffiness under eyes is the knowledge of what might cause it. There are several possibilities. One is stress. When the body is under stress, it will not work normally. Another cause is sleep problems. If you do not sleep enough or sleep too much, you may see puffiness under eyes. If you drink too much or eat too much salt, you may see that puffiness under eyes the next morning. Crying is another culprit. All of this leads to increased swelling around the eyes.

These reasons show that puffiness under eyes can be a temporary thing or something you deal with all the time. If it is temporary, you can use cold compresses to bring down the puffiness under eyes. You will find a good night’s sleep is another way to get good relief for a temporary situation. An eye tapping helps as well. But, if you are dealing with puffiness under eyes every day, then you need to look at the bigger picture. Most puffiness under eyes comes directly from excess fluid retention. Fluid retention is a natural byproduct of excess salt intake or excess alcohol intake. When you combine the two, the results are ghastly.

To deal with the long-term puffiness under eyes, you need to make changes to your life style. That means drinking less alcohol. It means lowering the amount of salt in your diet. It means eating a balanced diet. It means drinking water in the right quantities. All of this will help alleviate the puffiness under eyes for the long term. You may also need to investigate eye creams specially formulated to deal with puffiness under eyes. There are dozens on the market that will help this problem within a few applications. Finding the right one is the challenge.

If you have puffiness under eyes, do not lose hope. Some people see dramatic results from a single treatment. For others it may take multiple treatments to have long-term results against puffiness under eyes. Using a treatment consistently for a period of several weeks should show dramatic results for most people dealing with puffiness under eyes. If you do not take action now, you will have the same puffiness under eyes you have now in a few weeks. Taking action means something will happen in the mean time.
