Causes and Remedies For Puffy Eyes With Bags: How To Get Rid Of Bags Under Your Eyes?

The first step towards eliminating puffy eyes with bags under them is to find out the main cause for it. There are various medical causes like Kidney infections and Thyroid problems that can cause this condition. If you seem to have puffy eyes no matter the time of day, I would suggest that you go in for a thorough medical examination. Barring medical reasons, insufficient sleep, an unhealthy diet and dehydration are the main causes for puffy eyes. Make sure that you have a regular sleep schedule so that your body gets accustomed to a specific sleep schedule which will allow you to have longer periods of deep sleep. Excess salt and alcohol, especially during the evening, will cause temporary swelling, so it would be advisable that you drink a lot of water at least an hour before you go to bed to flush out your system and prevent eye bags. If you tend to have bags under your eyes on a regular basis, it is also possible that your diet is lacking in vitamin B, folic acid and essential fats. Review and change your daily diet to ensure that you get sufficient amounts of these nutrients.

There are a few home remedies for puffy eyes that will provide you with temporary relief from this problem. First prepare a cup of either black or chamomile tea and allow the tea bags to cool. While they are still warm (to maximize absorption) place them over your eyes for about fifteen minutes. Tea contains tannic acid which will cause your blood vessels to constrict. After that, slice a cucumber that has been refrigerated and place the slices over your eyes for another fifteen minutes. This will help to eliminate the puffy teabags almost immediately. You can finish off by splashing your eyes with cold water.
