  • Puffy Eyes

    Lately I've been having a real problem with puffiness around my eyes. I've been using some products from Benefit Cosmetics (the de-puffing action eye gel, the ooh-la lift, and eye-con) but it is not helping as much as I would like. So what do you use and recommend?

    I recommend Bean-o. It could kill both your problems with one stone.

      I used something for a while that an Avon lady friend gave me a few years ago. It finally ran out and I lost touch with the friend so... I don't remember it.

      But, what are you using to apply the products? If using your fingers, use your ring finger. I read somewhere that it's one of your weaker fingers and you won't use as much pressure with it.

        My first thought was, "Boy, Sunny's going through a lot today!"

            Yeah, I can't help thinking the two are related. I'm sure if she looks around, everyone at work also has puffy eyes....

                  Getting Rid of Puffy Eyes:
                  • Wear a mask that is filled with cold water or gel for a few minutes when you wake up in the morning.
                  • Wrap pieces of ice in paper towels and place them on your eyelids for a few minutes. The cold will reduce the swelling.
                  • Keep your eye creams in the refrigerator. The cool cream will help reduce your puffy eyes. When applying the cream, gently tap it onto your eyelid with your ring finger, so as to stimulate fluid drainage.
                  • Keep two teaspoons in the refrigerator and when you have an attack of the swollen eyelids; rest them on your eyelids for a minimum of one minute or until they warm up.
                  • Soak cotton-wool pads in a bowl of ice-cold milk and then squeeze most of the liquid out. Place the pads on your eyes and repeat as they warm up for about 15 minutes. This will also brighten the white in your eye.
                  • Dip cotton balls in ice water, and then squeeze the water out. Apply the cotton balls to your eyes for 5-10 minutes.
                  • Place black or chamomile teabags soaked in cold water on your eyelids for 15 minutes. The tannic acid in tea will constrict the blood vessels and reduce inflammation. To accelerate drainage, gently press from the inside corner to the outside corner of the swollen eye.
                  • Place slices of cucumber, potatoes, or apple over the puffy eyelids for 10-15 minutes. Potatoes will reduce dark circles under the eyes and apples have pectin which aids in anti-oxidation.
                  • Give your eyes a salt bath by soaking cotton pads in a saline solution or a solution of one teaspoon of salt in one pint of hot water. Place the pads on your puffy eyelids for a few minutes.
                  • Taking over the counter diuretics can help reduce fluid retention, especially if you experience bloating before your period. (Note: Diuretics also lower your blood pressure, so be sure to have yours checked before going this route.)
                  • Apply a hemorrhoid cream to the puffy area around the puffy eye, being EXTREMELY CAREFUL not to get any in your eye. Be sure to look for a cream that contains yeast and shark’s liver oil.
                  *Allergy related puffiness can become a permanent condition if not treated and eliminated. When the connective tissues in the eye become damaged from repeated swelling, the skin stretches and becomes looser. This can result in pouches under your eye, called blepharitis, because the fat around the eye has bulged. These pouches do not respond to home remedies like normal, occasional puffiness does. There is a minor surgery that can be performed called “blepharoplasty,” where the surgeon makes a very small incision under the lower eyelid to remove the excess skin, eliminating the pouches.

                    Oooh. I thought you were talking about the puffy bluish bags. I've always had those. As a child, my parents were even questioned by the school because my guidance counselor thought I was having trouble sleeping from abuse.

                    If it's allergy related, drink lots of water. And, even though they're puffy and probably watering, use some eye drops. It'll help sooth the membrane and the area will calm down a little bit.

                    Other than that, allergy medicine?

                          Thanks to everybody for your advice. I'm off work in a few minutes, I'm going to go home and try some of these remedies out.

                            Yep, a girl I used to work with swore by it for eye puffiness.
