The most common cause of puffy skin is edema, which is excess fluid in the deeper skin layers. Most people are concerned about puffiness of their eyelid skin, where it increases the bagginess and dark circles around their eyes. The good news is that this area is fairly responsive to tissue edema reduction.
The best way to reduce eyelid puffiness is to apply cool compresses. You can use a cool damp cloth as a compress. Another option is to wet two tea bags, place them in the fridge to chill and then apply them as cool compresses to your eyes. You can do the same with thinly sliced cucumbers.
If you routinely suffer from eyelid puffiness, use an eye cream with ingredients that help stimulate lymphatic drainage like my Advanced Corrective Eye Cream.
Also, look for reasons why you might have tissue edema such as eating a lot of salty food or food with MSG (monosodium glutamate). Keep yourself in good health by eating well and exercising, and see if that reduces eyelid puffiness. Often the thin skin of your eyelids is a window to your body’s overall vitality. While you sort that out, try cool compresses and the right eye cream.
