4 Creamless Remedies for Puffy Eyes & Bags Under Eyes
Puffy eyes (or periorbital swelling, if you want to sound really fancy about it) refers to swelling of the tissues around the eyes-above, below, or all around.

What’s triggering the fluid build-up can be a number of things, including illness (such as mononucleosis), sleep deprivation or over-sleeping, diet, allergies, and as mentioned above, aging/weight/genetics.
