Poor diet, sleepless nights, lack of hydration, fluid retention and hours spent in front of computer are the main culprits for swollen eyelids, for dark circles around the eyes and puffiness.
Eye skin is five times finer than the rest of the body. If you want to get rid of the unpleasant aspects you need to eat foods low in fat but high in fiber in order to stimulate the lymphatic circulation, especially fruits and vegetables (leeks, fennel, dandelion). Drink plenty of fluids (tea, tizane, water) to fight against water retention.
Natural treatments for swollen eyelids
1. Chamomile Tea:
Soak two chamomile tea bags in warm water. Let them cool and apply them on your eyes for 5 minutes.
2. Cucumber Slices:
Wash the cucumber and cut it into slim slices. Put the cucumber slices directly on the eye..
