“Girl, look at that ole crazy woman with the Puffy Eyes. She need to do something about those.”
“Cherlene, she got puffy eyes cause you hit her.”
“I know, but I still think she needs some of my Magic No Puffer Cream. She would look a whole lot better!”
“You crazy Cherlene!”
Well here we go again with Cherlene and Girl talking about someone’s Puffy or Dark Eyes. These two just won’t let up. Do you have bags under eyes? Do your eyes puff up every time the sun shines, or every morning when you wake up? In this series we are discussing the various causes and treatments for dark puffy eyes.
What Causes Puffy Eyes?
Many people are self-conscious about the way they look. For some it’s their weight. For some it’s their hair, or lack thereof. But as the eyes are the window to the soul, many people worry about how their eyes look. Dull, lifeless eyes are labels sometimes given to those who suffer from Dark or Puffy Eyes. Deep dark circles or bags under your eyes can make you:
To do something about your puffy eyes, it would help by looking at some of the causes of Periorbital Puffiness and Darkness. There are many; some internal and some external.
- Allergies, Sinus Infection, Colds
- Medical Issues (Kidney and Thyroid)
- Genetics (if mom or dad had them, it’s likely you will too)
- Excessive Pigmentation
- Excessive Crying, Rubbing, or Itching
- Sleeping In Your Makeup
- Overexposure To The Sun
- Diet (high in salt or low in Iron)
How Can You Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes?
As much as I love Cherlene’s cure I think we will have to go deeper. There are as many “cures” for Puffy Eyes as there are causes, but whichever one you choose, be sure to consult your physician before starting any treatment regimen.
- The Neti Pot is a popular thing to use for a variety of ailments. Most people don’t know it can aid in the elimination of the dark circles under your eyes, and the puffiness that can accompanies them.
- Many side and stomach sleepers have dark or puffy eyes when they wake in the morning. As hard as
This is a Puffy Eyes no-no!
it might be, changing your dominant sleep position to your back may let gravity pull the moisture that causes the situation from your Periorbital skin.
- Eating a diet with lots of salt can add to your eye woes as it tends to draw moisture from your face, which decreases the puffiness, but leaves you with those dark circles we talk about. A Low Salt/Higher Iron Diet may help (the Iron alleviates Anemia which can also cause eye skin discoloration.)
- Applying a Nightly Moisturizer can help soft and lighten the skin. Healthier skin looks better. This is a simple “preventative” measure that can help.
- Among the more “unique” home remedies, are some of the most used, by people with Puffy Eyes. Cold objects placed over the eyes for small amounts of time can help with swelling:
- Potato Slices
- Tea Bags
All can be used in the treatment of Problem Periorbital Skin.
- Perhaps the most used topical treatment for Puffy Eyes is skin care cream with Hydrocortisone in it. It comes in different strengths and should not be used for longer than instructed on the box, as this could lead to other, more serious skin complications.
- Also used widely for the treatment of Periorbital eye care is skin cream with caffeine in it. This constricts the capillaries under the skin and lightens its appearance.
- There are also several unique topical creams used to treat Puffy Eyes. Certain makeup contains skin care products. Sunscreen should be worn whenever in direct sunlight, and some people even use hemorrhoid cream.
What Am I Gonna Do With My Puffy Eyes?
Well, Cherlene would be proud of you. Nah, she’s probably wouldn’t, but at least you made it through all the “causes” and “cures” for Puffy Eyes. Now it’s time to start using a puffy eyes treatment and see what works best for you. Remember ask your doctor before you start one. In the end your Puffy Eyes will have gone bye-bye.

With my combination of sinus pressure and puffy eyes, it’s hard to figure out what to do sometimes. Warm compresses help the sinus pressure, but cool ones help the puffiness go down.

I have very puffy eyes when I wake up each morning. I always put a cool washcloth over my eyes after my shower and before putting on moisturizer and my makeup. It seems to help and it is very soothing. I’ll try some of these other methods and see if I can get them to go away more.

The cool of your washcloth helps reduce that swelling. Great tip Marjorie, and good luck with the other Puffy Eyes remedies. Let us know how they work.

Applying a Nightly Moisturizer can help soft and lighten the skin. Healthier skin looks better. Cucumbers can also be used as they help the eyes to relax.
