Help!! I Just Woke Up Really Puffy Under My Eyes...

Solution: Move fluids quickly to reduce swelling

  1. Take a hot shower.The shower water’s heat dilates (relaxes and opens) lymphatic vessels to assist with drainage of fluids (wastes and toxins) that build up in the vessels around the eyes. When you cleanse your face in the shower and water hits you forcefully and directly, this stimulating action encourages excess fluids to move out of the eye area to improve puffy eyes. In addition heat aiding circulation, your vertical position in the shower helps these fluids drain properly. For me, if I shower the night before instead of in the morning, my morning under eye puffiness always lingers longer.
  2. After the shower, apply a cold compress.The goal now is to constrict the vessels to push the fluids out of the eye area. Do this by applying 2 teaspoons that have been in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes under the eyes; keep it on for ten minutes. Repeat again in 20 minutes.
  3. Lastly, massage the eye area. With your ring finger, apply a slippery eye gel like eye q gel or eye cream to the eye area. Massage the skin in small circular motions upon application. The stimulation from the massage can help encourage fluids to work their way out of the eye area.
