Dr Oz: Puffy Eye Remedies
Dr Oz did a segment on why you get Puffy Eyes and Puffy Eye Remedies like Hemorrhoid Cream, EGCG found in Green Tea Bags and my personal favorite – Cold Spoons placed on your eyelids! Doctor Oz’s Assistant-Of-The-Day, Cynthia from seat 105, said that she has plenty of personal experience with Puffy Eyes.
Dr Oz: Puffy Eye Causes
- Excess Salt in your diet
- Sleep Position
Dr Oz: Hemorrhoid Cream for Puffy Eyes
The first cause of Puffy Eyes was excess salt in your diet, especially for people who love things like potato chips. The best solution is to of course avoid excess salt, however a temporary solution to use for special occasions is Hemorrhoid Cream. You apply the cream to the tissue under your eyes, being very careful to avoid getting any in your eye, and it constricts your veins and puts the fluid back into your circulation. Dr Oz said that he would use Hemorrhoid Cream for Puffy Eyes in the morning, but it is not something that you should be using every day.
The second cause of Puffy Eyes was Allergies. It is crucial to wash your hair at night, because you get pollen in your hair as you walk around all day. And if you do not wash your hair, you get the pollen onto your pillow which then can get into your eyes and causes them to swell.
Dr Oz: Green Tea Bags For Puffy Eyes
Dr Oz said that Dermatitis causes Puffy Eyes in a similar way to allergies. EGCG is found in Green Tea and it is a potent anti-inflammatory that is great for Puffy Eyes. You just wet a green tea bag for about 4 minutes and gently massage the cool tea bags over your closed eyelids. This will reduce the inflammation caused by Dermatitis or Allergies.
Dr Oz: Cold Spoon Puffy Eye Remedy
Doctor Oz said that he generally thinks eye creams are a waste of money, but if you freeze metal spoons or place them in a glass full of ice, and then place the back of a spoon over each of your eyelids, it will reduce the puffiness and feel great. Cynthia seemed to like this Puffy Eye Remedy the most of everything Dr Oz spoke about.
Dr Oz also mentioned that your Sleep Position can cause Puffy Eyes, because when you lie down horizontally, gravity pushes fluid into your undereye bags. By placing a brick beneath your headboard or by using several pillows to create an incline, the fluid will be able to drain out and will clear up your Puffy Eyes.
