Natural Ways to Reduce Dark circle/ Swollen Bags Under Your Eyes!!!!

What causes your puffy eyes?

There are several causes for under eye bags, puffiness, or dark circles.

Some of these are:

Heredity, water retention, toxin build up, a change in weather, hormones, allergic reactions, as well as health issues or complications from medications.

Having allergies may cause you to wake with puffy eyes from time to time. Sleeping with your head elevated slightly can sometimes help alleviate this by helping the sinus cavities to drain.

How can you prevent puffy eyes?
One of the steps you can do to prevent your under eye puffiness, bags, and dark circles is to have a healthy well balanced diet and stay well hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your body flush itself of any toxins as well as reduce the chance of water retention.

Limiting your caffeine intake can also help reduce water retention.
Sodium is also a big culprit in helping the body retain excess water and to reduce the bags under your eyes you may want to drastically reduce the salt in your diet.
