Minimizing Under Eye Puffiness and Dark CirclesJune 30, 2011
Did you know that your skin is the body’s largest organ? On the average person, it actually covers about 20 square feet! Besides protecting you from pathogens, injury and radiation, the skin provides many functions that help maintain equilibrium. Your skin maintains body temperature, releases toxins and synthesiizes vitamins. The skin also stores excess fluids and sometimes (especially as we get older) these excessive fluids accumulate around the eye area. Although there are hereditary components, so much of our appearance is due to our lifestyle. Common causes of puffy eyes are cigarettes and alcohol. Also salty, processed foods, excessive stress, lack of exercise and quality sleep all contribute to under eye puffiness. These are also contributors to dark circles under the eyes. By changing some of these habits not only will you look better, but you will also feel better.
Of course sometimes puffy eyes can be caused by a medical condition. You should contact a doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:
* Red or itchy eyes
* Pain along your brow or cheekbone
* Fluid accumulation in your hands, feet or ankles
Some of these homemade remedies may also help:
* Cold compresses or tea compresses
* Elevating your head with two pillows when you sleep
* Large framed sunglasses with UV 40 protection
* Foods rich in Vitamin K and E
* Most important……replace caffinated, sugarery drinks with lots of water!
By making these subtle changes you will see amazing results in about 2 to 3 weeks. Remember the best beauty secret is a good nights sleep!
