If you're tired of puffy peepers, it's time to take an eye-opening look at your options. Puffy eyes are essentially the result of swelling which can be caused by a number of things. There are plenty of factors - both external and internal - that contribute to puffy eyes including hormones, stress, allergies, fluid retention and more. Excess sodium and alcohol can also play a role. And it goes without saying that sleep deprivation is also up there among the list of causes. Unfortunately, puffy eyes can also be sign of more serious issues, which is why it's important to consult an eye doctor to ensure that there isn't something else going on. If you're one of those folks who isn't suffering from a specific eye condition, here are some at-home remedies you might want to consider. Get plenty of sleep. Wash you face with cold water. Cut back on your salt intake. Place two moist, chilled tea bags over closed eyelids for several minutes. Applying sliced cucumbers and grated potatoes to the eyes also assists in reducing swelling.
