Puffy Eyes Or Dark Under Eye Circles? A Natural Remedy That Works
Camels and humans share a very important survival trait. This shared trait causes a lot of us to suffer from puffy eyes and dark under eye circles. No matter how hard you try to get rid of your puffy eyes and dark under eye circles, until you learn about this, you are spinning your wheels. Ready for the secret? Here we go - the one trait we unfortunately share with camels is - water retention. You see, when the body is dehydrated, it acts just like a camel's hump; storing water for the long haul across the desert. Of course, instead of a camel's hump, you'll develop water reserves around the eyeballs, which shows up as puffy eyes and dark under eye circles. In addition to water, toxins will also form under your eyes if you don't drink enough water (that's why you look slightly puffy eyed if you've been drinking the night before, as alcohol dehydrates). In time, without proper regular hydration, your eyes will start looking aged. The solution is very simple: Keep yourself adequately hydrated - drink water! When you do, your body isn't put into survival mode and won't puff/darken up under your eyes. For a noticeable difference in your skin, drink eight or more 10-ounce glasses of water per day. It sounds simple - almost too good to be true; drink water and dramatically reduce puffy eyes and dark under eye circles - but it really isn't. It's just that most people don't have the discipline to do this, so they never reap the wonderful benefits it offers. They start off great, but as the weeks go by, their dehydrating habits return, along with their puffy eyes and dark under eye circles. A great solution is to use what I call the rubber band technique. Here's what you do: pick up a pack of rubber bands and a 20-ounce standard size water bottle at the store. Every time you finish a bottle, wrap one rubber band around it. Do this until your bottle has 4 rubber bands on it. That way, you'll know that you have consumed exactly 8 ten-ounce glasses of water in a day. The drawback? The bathroom will see a lot more of you:-). The advantage? The person staring back at you in that bathroom mirror will be smiling wider and wider, as your puffy eyes and dark under eye circles will fade as the weeks go by.
