No-one likes waking up looking worse than they did the night before or looking like they just got punched in the face. Having puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes can certainly add some stress to the morning after. Puffy eyes and dark circles are caused by a number of things, more notably poor lymphatic drainage, poor circulation, and dehydration. Whatever the cause, there are little things you can do during the day and at night to rid yourself of puffy eyes and dark circles.

At night after you've washed your face, put on your PJ's and laid down to bed you don't realize that you can aid in the reduction of puffy eyes before you fall asleep and while sleeping. Make sure to remove any and all make up with a mild make up remover that won't irritate skin. Open a window for air circulation, for breathing in stale air, whether it is yours or someone else's is sure to give you puffy eyes. Sleep with your head raised slightly higher than your body. This elevation aids in lymphatic drainage, so use two pillows if necessary. Drinking water right before bed is also a contributor to puffy eyes, so make sure to get plenty of what during the day when it counts the most.

The morning is when we spend the most time looking at ourselves in the mirror. We get up and get dressed for school, work, and what-not. Most of don't realize there are a couple little things we can do every morning to aid in the reduction of puffy eyes. As soon as you wake up, stretch, jog in place, do some push-ups, do something to get the blood pumping and circulating. Drinking a big glass of water is also key to waking up, your body's been shut down for the past eight hours and you're dehydrated. Water followed by some all natural apple juice after breakfast is very good for detoxifying the whole body. Massaging the skin around the eye socket and eye brows for a couple minutes is a good way to drain the lymph system surrounding the eye.

For those who need a little more help ridding themselves of puffy eyes and dark circles, I suggest using an all natural, organic gel or cream. There are a number of products on the market designed for the sole purpose of eliminating puffy eyes and dark circles without any chemical bases or nasty side effects. Some products use main ingredients like Haloxyl and Eyeliss which are organic peptide based compounds to fight off under eye issues. These ingredients breakdown the pigments that cause dark circles and promote lymphatic drainage while aiding in the regeneration of new cells.

Puffy eyes can be a pain in the butt, there's no doubt about that and most of us lead busy lives but as you can see there is hope. Follow these steps and you'll be sure to win the fight over puffy eyes and dark circles.
