Foods that prevent puffy eyes
Parsley helps the kidneys in flushing out excess fluids from the body. So if you are regularly getting puffy eyes in the morning, try to include this in your meal.
If eye bags are a regular problem for you, start eating oatmeal for breakfast. One reason for puffy eyes can be constipation. Oats are rich in fiber and help ease bowel movements, thereby reducing puffiness.
Rather than eating them, avocados can help remove eye puffiness by applying them externally. Cut slices of the fruit, place them over your eyes, and leave them there for about 10 minutes. Dark circles can be caused by a deficiency in vitamin K and avocados are rich in this. Just one ounce of avocado contains 8 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin K. Avocados are also helpful in removing dark circles.
Putting chilled cucumber slices over your eyes is a great way to refresh your tired eyes and remove eye bags too. Leave the slices there for about 15 minutes, and Voila! your eye bags should have disappeared and your eyes will feel a lot fresher.
