3 Simple Ways To Reduce Swollen, Puffy Eyes - LADUORA

Whether they’re the cause of lack of sleep, allergies or high sodium intake, puffy eyes can feel uncomfortable and make you self-conscious. Puffiness under the eyes aren’t uncommon, and there are techniques and treatments can help visibly reduce the appearance of under-eye shadows, dark circles and puffiness.  

WHAT ARE PUFFY EYES?

Puffy eyes are swelling of the eyes, the medical term for swollen eyes is periorbital edema. It results from accumulation of the excess fluid in the connective tissues throughout the eye, most commonly the eyelids.

 

WHAT CAUSES PUFFY EYES?

There are many factors may cause you to get puffy under the eyes:

  • Aging
  • Lack of Sleep
  • Excessive Crying
  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • High Alcohol Intake
  • High Sodium Intake

 

3 SIMPLE WAYS TO REDUCE EYE PUFFINESS AT HOME

Use Right Products And Ingredients

  • Caffeine – Caffeine is often included in eye creams for its anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to depuff your under eyes.
  • Retinol – Some of the best eye creams for puffiness also contain retinol, a vitamin A derivative that helps encourage cell turnover and boosts collagen products to soften and firmer the under eye complexion.
  • Vitamin C – is a potent collagen booster and so the addition of vitamin C to your regimen can help thicken the delicate under-eye area and conceal discoloration.
  • Antioxidants - like vitamins C, E and aloe can also help to soothe and brighten the eye area.

Increase The Potassium Intake

A healthy intake of potassium acts as a counterbalance to high sodium levels. Too much sodium intake and not enough potassium not only causes puffy eyes but affects your cardiovascular health as well. Leafy greens, bananas, avocados, beans and yogurt are rich sources of potassium and help restore the balance in your body and reduce the water retention that contributes to eye bags. You can also switch to potassium supplement if you’re not satisfied with the natural sources of potassium.

Massage Your Eye Contour

Lymphatic drainage massage is form of gentle massage to reduce swelling and improve circulating throughout the lymphatic system. There are many massaging tools for your eye area out there, including the LADUORA® VELVE 4-in-1 Facial Wand, which is known to be the best tool for reducing eye puffiness and dark circles. I recommend using VELVE facial wand to the under-eye and brow area, focusing on an upward and outward motion to encourage lymphatic movement for optimized results.
