Morning-After Puffy Eyes
Seasonal allergies, a cold, or even a sinus infection can be some of the causes that can lead to water building up under the eye.
The skin around the eye area is the most sensitive and thinnest. So it is the area that is most affected by the in and out flow of all fluids that our body uses.
But more than like its a dinner heavy with salty food or a night of crying while watching a tearjerker movie that caused the dreaded morning-after puffiness. The reason is osmosis. Water always travels from areas in the body where there’s low salt concentration to tissues where there’s more salt. This principle holds true whether the salt comes from tears or from soy sauce. Your body doesn’t really know the difference. With that being said there are only so many miracles that you can expect from your makeup. A few lifestyle tweaks will do wonders to make the most dramatic improvement in how you look and the condition of your eyes.
It is recommended that you sleep with your head elevated on two pillows the night before a big event and avoid salty foods for a few days. These steps will prevent fluid from collecting around the eyes and causing bags.
