What Causes Eye Puffiness and How Skin Actives Can Help

What Causes Eye Puffiness and How Skin Actives Can Help

Posted by Dr. Hannah Sivak and Susan Katz on Jul 12th 2019

Your eyes are special. We have to be careful not to irritate the eyes and not to increase the chances of getting an eye infection. The eyelids and the skin around the eyes are also susceptible to irritation and infections. The skin around the eyes are very delicate and as we age, will thin and become even more delicate. This thinning will make the capillaries more visible and may make our eyelids and under our eyes puffy with inflammation.

What Causes Puffy Eyes

Puffy eyes is a common problem but the causes can be numerous, from health conditions to environmental factors. But most of the causes can be traced back to how we treat our body. Health conditions that may affect your eyes and the skin around them could be allergies, sinus congestion, and eye infections, such as conjunctivitis or styes. More serious conditions like thyroid disease could also be a cause of puffy eyes. If you suspect a medical problem, please see your doctor. Environmental conditions such as pollution and smoking can also contribute to eye irritation, including puffiness and redness around the eyes.

What are we doing to our bodies that may cause puffy eyes? To mention a few, dehydration, lack of sleep, poor diet and too much salt. All common causes for puffy eyes and all things we can try to do better on. However, its easy to say that we are going to eat better and get more sleep but reality often gets in the way. We can all use a little help and Skin Actives is here for you.
