Excelling in your career, having loving relationships, enjoying a healthy lifestyle and active social life can be challenging. It takes a lot of energy and strength to keep everything going smoothly while you also take care of your mental health. Many women strive to achieve the perfect woman image portrayed by our society and that takes a lot of energy. Most of the time doing all of these activities will leave us tired which of course affects our skin. Especially our eyes which we all know are windows to the soul, will show if we are tired or getting enough sleep during the nights.

The most common thing each woman suffers from is puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes.  Dealing with this condition is often hard and embarrassing since the first thing people will notice is your face. The major cause of this condition is of course lack of sleep, however consuming alcohol, smoking and poor diet can also manifest the same issues. Fortunately, nowadays everything is treatable. We have compiled a list of 5 tips that will make you forget about puffy eyes forever. 

  1. Get the necessary rest at night

Getting the optimal 8 hours of sleep per night will do the trick. Many people think that they should follow their own biological clock and that 6 hours of sleep is enough. This is untrue of course since it’s scientifically proven that you need 8 hours of sleep for your body and brain to get fully rested and prepared for the daily activities. You need to change your habits and go to bed early in order to get a full body rest. Changing habits can be tough but you can use hot baths or a warm cup of a tea to reinforce your sleeping practice.  

  1. Use protection from the sun

Exposure to UV rays can damage your skin, especially the sensitive area around your eyes. As an addition to the applied sunscreen, you should never forget to wear glasses if you are planning to stay on the sun for a longer period of time. Sunglasses are also great protection from wrinkles and lines.

  1. Natural Home Treatments

Home natural remedies are the best. Applying cucumber slices on your eyes ones or twice per week can significantly reduce the dark circles under your eyes. First, make sure you leave the cucumber in the refrigerator for an hour and then apply the slices on your eyes for 15 minutes. Ice cubes can be beneficial too. Gently pressing ice cubes on your eyes for 10 minutes can significantly improve your puffy eye condition.

  1. Implement a Healthy Diet

Replace all of the junk food with natural ingredients and vegetables. Following healthy and nutritious diet on long-term will affect the condition on your skin. Instead of eating French fries, burgers or chips start your day with fruits, vegetables, and proteins. 

Eat plenty of fish, tuna, and carrots. Especially carrots are rich with vitamin A and iron that helps the nutrition of your skin.

  1. Always treat your eyes with care
