Treating the Cause of Eye Puffiness and Eye Darkness
Allergy and Puffy Eyes
An allergic response can be controlled significantly with the use of an antihistamine taken orally or applied topically. There are multiple natural antihistamines that are very effective in the treatment of skin allergy as well as sinus and hay fever control. Curcumin (turmeric) is a great all rounder for many different health problems but is also a great antihistamine. Oolong Tea is also great for reducing eczema symptoms.
Ask your natural health practitioner about other supplements that can assist with allergy such as a product to rebalance the immune system, treat the gut and decrease the allergy response.
An antihistamine containing cream will also assist when applied topically.
Stress and the Tired Eye Look
Stress and adrenal burnout is the cause of multiple health problems. It is not just a trigger for lack of sleep or dark looking eyes. There are multiple natural treatments including supplements, lifestyle and dietary change that can assist with supporting during times of stress. See a natural health practitioner or other health specialist to support you through stressful periods and to help bring long term resolution.

As the darkened eyes and puffiness around the eyes in older adults is often a result of poor circulation and hydration, it makes sense to use a product that will promote the strengthening of capillaries. And of course Native Natural Skin Care has an eye cream that does just that.
There are several natural extracts that have the ability to strengthen capillaries and assist with the appearance of darkness and puffiness around the eyes including Crown of Gold, Silky Oil , Illawarra Flame Tree and Kapok. Kapok is also an antihistamine. Cucumber on the other hand is known for its soothing, cooling and moisturizing properties.
