Puffy eyes in the morning?

This is known as periorbital edema, a temporary swelling of the area under and around the eyes due to fluid retention. The combination of factors, including poor fluid circulation and sodium consumption, can contribute to the puffy under eyes. At Complexions Spa, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to support glowing skin and overall well-being. Let’s explore some effective strategies to reduce morning puffiness and enjoy refreshed, rejuvenated eyes.

Puffy Eyes Causes

Firstly, it’s vital to pay attention to our everyday choices. The food we consume plays a significant role in our appearance and how we feel. Inflammatory foods, such as processed and packaged options, red meat, sugary treats, and alcohol, can all contribute to puffy eyes.

Surprisingly, sodium can also be found in foods that may not be immediately recognizable as salty. Many prepackaged, processed, and restaurant foods contain high concentrations of sodium. The average sodium intake in the United States is over 3.4 grams per day. The majority of this sodium comes from specific sources.

The American Heart Association suggests that adults limit their sodium intake to 2300 milligrams per day. They also recommend gradually reducing this amount to reach an ideal limit of 1500 milligrams per day. Adhering to these guidelines not only improves blood pressure and heart health but can also help reduce puffiness.

Sodium is a mineral that regulates water movement in and out of cells. It plays a significant role in causing puffy eyes. When consumed in appropriate amounts, sodium helps maintain a balance between the water inside and outside the cells.

However, excessive sodium intake leads to water retention and accumulation, resulting in puffy eyes. Foods that contribute to high sodium intake include the following.

  • processed or packaged foods
  • fast food
  • alcoholic drinks
  • carbonated beverages
  • sauces and seasonings
  • lunch meat
  • and soups

By limiting these options, you can lower the risk of puffy eyes and foster a healthier appearance.

How To Prevent and Rid Puffy Eyes

To eliminate morning puffiness and enhance your eye area, it’s essential to adopt a thorough skincare routine.

One puffy eyes treatment is to increase your water intake. Additionally, consider enjoying a cup of decaffeinated tea before bed. This can promote hydration. Additionally, we recommend incorporating the luxurious Dubois Beauty Bright Eyes Eye Cream into your morning and evening routine.
