At any rate, a reader asked me what to do for puffiness — well that’s one of my main issues. More than likely due to my red wine habit and not enough sleep. But there are a few other factors that play into as well. If you do use eye cream at night, be sure not to apply too close to your lash line. The product does migrate and will block your tear ducts, resulting in morning puffiness. If you suffer from allergies, try taking an antihistamine before bed, this may help with your puffiness.
Now for my top 5 problems and eye treatments:
1. Excess Baggage
Send your bags packing with a serum packed full of antioxidants
Try: Caudalie Vinexpert Anti-Aging Serum Eyes and Lips

Witch Hazel: Eliminates puffiness
2. You’re a Slacker
Skin around eyes is getting a little droopy and losing elasticity
Try: Clinique Repairwear Intensive Eye Cream

3. You’ve got something to hide.
If concealer is your best friend, you need a powerful antidote for the dark circles.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, reduces the appearance of slackening skin and relieves puffiness and under-eye bags

4. Puffy is your new first name
Too much salt, too much partying, not enough sleep, allergies — they all can be the culprits of puffy eyes.
