Get Rid of Puffiness and Undereye Circles

Under Eye Puffiness           Wrinkles under the eyes, puffiness, and under eye black circles also called raccoon eyes are one of the leading causes of the premature aging look. Black eye circles and wrinkles can make someone look ten years older. Black eye circles are actually caused by oxidative damage to the blood that pools underneath the thin skin under the eyes. When this blood oxidizes it turns to a bluish and black color. In addition, just by reducing the wrinkles and black circles you can turn back the clock 5 or more years and give yourself a more youthful appearance. Follow the steps below to reduce your eye wrinkles, puffiness, and under eye circles.

Step 1

Eye Wrinkle CreamUse an under eye cream that contains retinol in it. Retinol is Vitamin A, an antioxidant which can specifically reduce wrinkles under the eyes and anywhere else on the body. Apply this cream underneath the eyes once in the morning and once in the evening. Retinol has been shown to reduce under eye black circles in addition to wrinkles.

Step 2

Green Tea WrinklesA few nights a week apply wet green tea bags to reduce the puffiness under your eyes. Green tea has antioxidants and anti inflammatory compounds which will work to reduce the swelling and puffiness under the eyes. Keep the bags underneath your closed eyes for twenty minutes to an hour. This is similar to the cucumber eye treatment method.

Step 3

Antioxidants to Reduce Wrinkles Review the amounts of antioxidants in your diet and increase them. Just as using antioxidants on the skin can reduce wrinkles so too can taking antioxidants orally. You can supplement with fruits and vegetables as well as take a multivitamin that has antioxidants in it.

Step 4

Sleep Reduces WrinklesMake sure to get 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night. The tired under eyes look that comes from lack of sleep will contribute to your under eye circles, wrinkles, and puffiness. Be sure to get this much rest every day.

Step 5

Avoid rubbing your eyes. Rubbing your eyes a lot may break blood capillaries under the thin skin beneath the eye. This may make your under eye puffiness and dark circles worse.
