If you are waking up to puffy eyes in the morning, it could be allergies, but it could also be alcohol, salty foods, and even crying fits. Often these are hard to avoid totally and so are puffy eyes. Here are a few tips on how to get you depuffed and ready for the day ahead.
If you splurged last night with a salty dinner or a couple of cocktails, drink a large glass of water or chamomile tea before heading for the bed. If it’s tears or allergies that have left you swollen, take an over the counter antihistamine.Sleeping with an extra pillow under your head will keep the fluid from settling under the skin around your eyes.If you still wake up puffy, apply a depuffing eye gel that contains caffeine. You can find gels that contain other calming ingredients like cucumber and chamomile.
For an at home treatment place two wet tea bags (use caffeinated black tea) in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, then place them on your eyes for 10 minutes. The caffeine and cold constricts the blood vessels and will drain fluid.
