How To Reduce Puffiness Under Eyes

The delicate skin around the eyes is prone to holding excess fluid, making the under-eye area appear puffy. Whether you have persistent puffiness or occasionally awaken to tired-looking eyes, discover how to reduce puffiness under the eyes, the factors that cause it, and the best eye creams for puffiness.

What Causes Puffiness Under The Eyes

Under-eyes are exceptionally delicate and fragile. The skin around the eyes is 20 times thinner than the rest of the face, making the under-eye especially susceptible to puffiness. Excess fluid retention and other factors can cause puffiness under the eyes, including:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Dehydration
  • Allergies
  • Stress
  • Aging
  • Overconsumption of salt and alcohol

How To Reduce Puffiness Under Eyes

1. Increase Hydration

When the body’s fluid levels become low due to dehydration, it triggers fluid retention and can cause puffiness under the eyes. Maintaining adequate hydration enhances the body’s circulation which helps to remove excess fluid from the eye area.

Increasing the amount of water you drink throughout the day is a simple way to help reduce under-eye puffiness.

2. Using A Cold Compress

Similar to how ice can help reduce the swelling of a bruise, a cold compress is essential for tightening eye bags. Applying cold to the under-eye area can help the blood vessels to constrict, offering temporary relief and reducing puffiness.

Enhance your eye care routine with Omorovicza’s Cooling Derma-Globes. These ice-cool globes roll into facial contours to instantly awaken skin, smooth the eye area, and reduce eye puffiness. We recommend placing a cloth over the eyes before use.

Expert Tip: We also suggest soaking cotton pads with the Queen of Hungary Mist and placing them over the eyes to instantly refresh and hydrate the under-eye.

3. Get Plenty Of Sleep And Rest

Sleep not only gives your mind time to regenerate, but it does the same for your body and skin. While you sleep your body works to repair and restore the skin. Getting the recommended hours of sleep improves its overall health – including the under-eye area.

Sleeping with the head slightly elevated also helps to visibly prevent fluid from building up around the eye area during the night.

4. Use A Rose Quartz Roller

Promoting lymphatic drainage helps to drain excess fluid, awakening the skin and reducing the appearance of puffiness under the eyes. Use a Rose Quartz Roller to help improve lymphatic drainage and reduce under-eye puffiness for a healthier-looking complexion.

Consider putting the roller in the fridge first then gently roll towards the nose.

5. Reduce Salt And Alcohol

Overconsumption of salt and excessive alcohol intake increases fluid retention in the body and swelling under the eyes. Maintain a healthy diet and reduce alcohol and salt consumption to help promote a well-rested, refreshed appearance.

Foods rich in vitamins A and C are anti-inflammatory and water-soluble, can help to counteract fluid retention.

6. Best Eye Cream For Puffiness

Hydrating and nourishing the under-eye is key to helping to reduce puffiness. We suggest using a dedicated eye cream with powerful, natural ingredients to target puffy eyes.

Use Illumineye C as part of your morning skin ritual. Powered by vitamins A, C and E, this brightening eye cream visibly smooths and hydrates the eye contour. Elderberry flower extract and arnica also combine to stimulate micro-circulation, alleviating puffiness under the eyes.

Gently dab along the eye socket using the ring finger to restore the skin’s natural radiance.
