We're dishing out the truth behind puffy eyes and those stubborn bags that don't seem to want to disappear. While dehydration maybe one cause, there are several other reasons and of course cures for those unattractive eye bags medically called: periorbital puffness. Editor from etia.com, Jennifer Willy says, "there can be several reasons behind puffy eyes. The most common reason is crying. After a hard cry, a special kind of fluid gets collected in the eyelids and the whole area around our eyes. Puffy eyes can never be fun and bring us emotionally and socially down. So, what can we do to remove it?
To reduce the swelling the easiest solution is to cool it down. Apply a cold compress and hold it around your eyes for few minutes gently. Another way is to increase the blood flow of the eye area by gently tapping it. Gently, sweep your fingers from the inside corner of your eye outward. Massage it for 2-4 minutes and rest. Another simple way is to apply a chilled face cream or moisturizer. It will cool our eyes and will reduce the puffiness around our eyes. There are several Eye Masks that are available in the market currently.
