Let’s find out what causes puffy eyes and how to deflate them with natural remedies.
It happens to everyone to find their eyes swollen in the morning, especially after having rested little and badly. The cause of swelling is an excess of fluid in the soft tissues surrounding the eyes, which can be due to several factors. Fortunately, this is very rareky a worrying condition and with a few simple natural remedies it is possible to deflate your puffy eyes quickly. Let’s see!
Main causes of puffy eyes
As we said before, the cause of the swollen, red eyes is the accumulation of fluid. This can be due to several causes, including: stress, crying, allergic reactions, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, stye and trauma.
Just in few rare cases, swelling can be due to worrying conditions, such as encephalitis and meningitis. If the swelling lasts a long time and is accompanied by excessive tearing, itching, burning, pain, blurred vision, fever and headaches, it is best to seek medical attention.
Home Remedies for puffy eyes
Obviously, if the swollen eyes are due to infection, allergic reactions or other illnesses, you should ask your doctor about the most suitable medication. If, on the other hand, the swelling is simply due to tiredness, lack of rest or heavy crying, it is sufficient to use natural remedies to deflate the eyes quickly.
One of the most famous remedies is certainly the cucumber slice wrap. Cucumber is rich in water and zinc, it refreshes the eyes, decongests them, deflates them and fights bags and dark circles under the eyes. Just keep a cucumber in the fridge, cut it into slices and apply them to the eyes after removing make-up, leaving them on for about fifteen minutes.
Alternatively, you can use cornflower water, which not only deflates the eyelids, but also soothes irritated eyes and fights redness. Use it to wet cotton discs, then apply to the eyes and leave on for a few minutes. If you do not have cornflower water, you can replace it with rosewater, which is equally effective.
