Did you happen to wake up with swollen eyes, even if you get enough sleep? Here are the causes and how to solve this problem in a few minutes!
Why you have puffy eyes in the morning
If you wake up with swollen eyes, the first possible cause is fatigue. Perhaps you think you had enough sleep, but your body may be of a different opinion. Every night you need at least seven hours of sleep.
Another cause can be sleep position. If you sleep face down or your head is a little lower than the rest of the body, it is possible to wake up with puffy eyes. The solution would be to use one or more pillows and find a comfortable sleeping position where the head is slightly above the rest of the body.
Finally, think about what you ate the night before. You can wake up with puffy eyes if you had a very salty meal or if you have consumed alcohol.
How to get rid of puffy eyes in the morning
First, it is better to prevent than to treat. So if you happen to wake up often with swollen eyes in the morning, seek to avoid the factors mentioned above. Do not forget: you have to sleep with your head above, avoid alcohol and consume less salt at dinner.
If it is too late for prevention, you can try these helpful tips:
1. Drink plenty of water. If the eyes are swollen from alcohol or salt, just drink plenty of water in the morning and in a few hours you should look much better.
2. Apply a cold compress on the eyelids. You can use this old remedy: two tablespoons kept on the freezer and applied on the eyes, but equally well will work a compress soaked in cold water.
Meanwhile, avoid rubbing your eyes because you will only make things worse.
