Allergies and Puffy Eyes

Updated on April 8, 2016

Something in Common

Just about everyone these days is allergic to something. Im not talking about medicines or food. No, Im talking about when the wind blows and cedar elm, pollen, mold, regweed,etc. You name it, your allergic to it kind of allergies!

Well, if that isn't enough, along with itchy watery eyes come the dreaded puffiness. This being uncomfortable enough also makes us look and feel older. Especially if we go through it every season.

So, there are some things we can do to make them smaller, less noticable and feel better. Something that has always worked for me are cooling face masks. You can find these in any drug store, some grocery stores even have them and dollar stores each usually come with instructions, althogh pretty self-explanitory. I prefer the ones with eye holes simply because I never slow down. If you need the relief and you cannot stop to close your eyes to take a nap, this is definently the way to go!


Sometimes if your eyes are also irritated from the itchiness eyedrops might do more harm than good. Be sure the eyedrops you choose are moisturizing eyedrops. It should say right on the package. Some eyedrops are kind of drying and sting a lot. You don't want to add insult to injury! So always check the label. If your in a drug store or pharmacy, ask a pharmisist before buying.

See the Difference!

You will not believe the difference, not to mention the relief you are going to feel once your puffiness goes away. Now theres just one more thing I want to talk about and that is eye gel. I know some people don't prefer it but you don't use it in the morning before you go to work. Use it in the evening or when you have your down time. It goes just under your eye where the puffiness is. So soothing and cooling but you want to use it only when most of the puffiness is gone later and you don't have to be puffy to use it. So relaxing after a stressful day. Just pat it on gently with the tip of your clean ring finger. Enjoy!
