What Are Puffy Eyes?

Puffy eyes are extremely common, making a person appear more tired and aged. There are various causes such as lack of sleep or an allergic reaction. Since the skin surrounding the eyes is very thin and sensitive, it is more prone to an irritation and inflammation.

Often swelling, itchiness and redness, come along with a puffy look as well as dark circles and sagging. The most common culprits is lack of sleep, which causes the puffy eye look in the morning and may last for several hours. Other causes include hormonal fluctuation and eye irritation, often as a result of allergies or other irritants. See our treatment video for more information.
