If you often encounter such a problem,be sure to read this article to understand what to do next. Often, edema occurs due to tears or a sleepless night, a salted fish with beer for the night, a lack of water in the body. But there are other reasons. Let's understand.

Features of the skin under the eyes

The skin under the eyes is the thinnest and most sensitive. In this area there are no sebaceous glands, therefore it is more dry. The skin under the eyes is more delicate and the capillaries are better seen in these places. The lack of moisture only aggravates the matter. Poor blood supply leads to stagnation of blood in the capillaries under the eyes and the formation of blue and black circles under the eyes. If the body develops swelling, then in the first place most often suffer from the eyes.

The main causes of edema and bags under the eyes in the mornings

1. Accumulation of fluid and as a consequence of the appearance of swelling (bags) through the eyes in the morning. If the eyelids swell only occasionally in the morning, thenmost likely the reason is this. The body does not have time to get rid of water, which leads to edema, and tk. the skin around the eyes is the most delicate and sensitive, the most noticeable is just under the eyes. There are several reasons for fluid retention:

  • The excess amount of salty and spicy, especially at night. Salt retains water in the body and t. it water can not normally circulate in the body, there are swelling (bags) under the eyes. In the evening, try not to eat salty food at all
  • Drinking water, coffee or other drinks at night. But at night you should not drink a lot of water and drinks, delimited by a couple of sips of water
  • Drinking alcohol, especially at night. Alcohol also contributes to water retention

2. Insufficient water intake during the day. Strangely enough, but that there was no edema,you need to drink water, about 2 liters of water a day, 2/3 of which it is desirable to drink until 2 pm. If you drink too little, the body begins to store water.

I have this problem, but very rarely. I always, for as long as I can remember, have a little pale skin under my eyes - since my childhood I tried to solve this, I know a few recipes. But the best recipe for me is a very deep sleep, go to bed early and cream on the face. Then the skin under the eyes is the most beautiful. For some reason, borscht influences my skin very well - the effect is visible the very next day. A couple of years younger skin becomes at least. I once read an interview, Sienna Miller also noticed this and learned to cook Ukrainian borsch for the sake of it.
As a rule, if I slept badly ...

It was very interesting to read that water should be drunk mostly before lunch ... ..

Interesting about borscht) Perhaps because of the vegetables,which give the necessary vitamins to the body, although in it the vegetables are thermally processed. About water - in the evening water can cause swelling, so it is better to drink the main volume of water before

I often have swelling and not only undereyes, the feeling that the whole body is gradually swelling, but on the face is particularly noticeable. The reason, as it seems to me in the abuse of coffee. Coffee is a strong diuretic and removes salt from the body. It flushes out not only the sodium salt, but all the others. In the cells, there are so-called “potassium-sodium pumps”, which work according to the principle: sodium lets water into the cell, and potassium releases. The abuse of coffee contributes to the waste of these salts, and it is replenished mainly with sodium salt, since we only “fertilize” our food with it. Periodically, I “quit” drinking coffee, drink “potassium + magnesium” complex (potassium is not absorbed without magnesium) and the edema goes away, along with their poor health and intracranial pressure with a headache. I prefer “potassium + magnesium Dopelgertsevskys, since there is a 2 times higher concentration of substances. You can drink Panangin or cheaper Russian-made counterparts.
Who has more will power for me than coffee - do not drink, the effect is only temporary, as a result, the strength from coffee becomes less and less.
So, even knowing the reason, it is sometimes difficult to fight.

The PMS may also increase, as the nervous system is disturbed, which, in the case of PMS, is very much at the limit.

the only thing that prescribed is magnesium.
I am 32 and for some reason the doctors thought that I was too young, that everything would be bad, as I say.

From hormones during pregnancy - definitely yes. It is believed that the first 10-15 days at the beginning of feeding is also normal.

Hello Oksana, I also had or alsoSometimes there is a similar problem. Also bypassed dozens of doctors. Finally I found that I have a reduced thyroid function and a very hypersensitivity to histamine. As soon as she went through a strict diet, excluding products containing histamine (cheese, wine, fish, tremors, bread, sauerkraut ... so on ...) she felt much lighter, I looked better, and more important: reduce stress .... I WISH SUCCESS; I hope that somehow I could help

Hello, my husband, after NG in the eveningthere was a bag under the eye. Previously, this was not. What could have caused this? Naturally, on the eve of NG, they had a good dinner and drank it, the bag appeared only under one eye ....

Stop drinking instant coffee! And not only soluble ... After three days, as I stopped drinking this stuff, the situation on my face improved, my complexion became better and the bags slowly began to pass! And a couple more tips to sleep more and quit smoking and drinking alcohol! And if you already comply with all of the above, you still have bags and bruises, then only to the doctor!
