What Can I Do About Puffiness Under My Eyes?
Both genetics and lifestyle can be blamed for puffiness under the eyes. If you have genetic, chronic under-eye bags, unfortunately there is no
topical treatment that will help. Genetic puffiness is usually caused by fatty deposits that normally require surgical removal. However, if you experience puffiness from unhealthy daily habits, there are topical treatments that can make a significant difference.
Lack of sleep, alcohol consumption and a poor diet high in sodium can all contribute to the retention and pooling of fluid under the eyes, resulting in puffiness or heavy bags. Unfortunately, the holidays are usually a time of little sleep, heavy drinking and overindulgence in unhealthy foods.
This is also a time when we’re usually trying to look our best for family gatherings and photos. It’s always wise to try to drink more water, sleep more and eat less. But when that’s not possible or when your efforts are not paying off enough, reach for one of Santa’s little helpers in a jar.
What are the best products that prevent and treat puffiness? Different eye treatments work using different ingredients. Canyon Ranch Brightness Eye Cream utilizes caffeine to deflate under-eye bags. Caffeine is very effective and works
quickly to improve the appearance of the eyes.
For sensitive types seeking natural solutions Skyn ICELAND offers a great alternative with its Icelandic Relief Eye Cream. The cream contains mandarin peel which naturally reduces puffiness.
If you want the best of nature and science, Bieux Skin BioNaturals Advanced Eye Treatment Cream utilizes eyeseryl to reduce fluid beneath the skin and vine-eco, a natural grape extract that encourages circulation and drainage.
The formula is paraben-free, gentle and suitable for all skin types.
Many of us stray from our healthy habits from time to time, especially during the holidays. If you’ve had a few too many late nights, or over-indulged with a cocktail or two, pick up one of these soothing eye creams and you’ll look rested and refreshed.
