Hi. I'm Jackie Silver from Aging Backwards. I have hundreds of secrets, tips and shortcuts for looking and feeling young in my book "Aging Backwards: Secrets to Staying Young." I'm here to tell you what causes under eye puffiness. Under eye puffiness can make you look older, or tired, but mild puffiness is usually only a temporary concern, and rarely a sign of a serious underlying medical condition. Puffy eyes can be caused by heredity, fluid retention from hormone levels, and even changes in weather, allergies and certain medications. There are a number of ways to prevent and reduce under eye puffiness. First, you want to try to get enough sleep. Seven to eight hours is the recommended amount for adults. Sleep with your head slightly raised, to prevent fluids from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep. You can use an extra pillow to prop your head a little higher, but be careful not to harm your neck. Try to reduce your exposure to allergens. Many people are allergic to dust, animals, pollen, and more. Here's one of my best secrets for reducing overall puffiness. Asparagus is a natural diuretic. I eat it everyday to loose that bloated feeling. Other ways to reduce puffiness include using moist tea bags under your eyes, cucumber slices, or the new eye slices, which cool your eyes even without refrigeration. If your puffiness is excessive, or persistent, make sure to see your doctor. I'm Jackie Silver. Now get some sleep.
