Whether caused by lack of sleep, allergies, aging or salty food – swollen, tired or puffy eyes can affect anyone. And while there’s a range of reasons why we might have swollen undereyes, one thing is for sure – we’re tired of looking tired.

Dermalogica’s new Awaken Peptide Eye Gel utilizes powerful firming peptides and plant-derived technology to reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines. This weightless, hydrating, depuffing eye gel firms and smooths skin texture for a more energized appearance. 


the science behind puffy eyes



There are a plethora of intrinsic and extrinsic factors that cause puffy, swollen, or tired eyes. Here are some of the most common reasons behind puffy eyes.

UV exposure: sun exposure is one of the most detrimental environmental factors responsible for a range of skin conditions and concerns.
lack of sleep: the accumulation of excess fluid in the tissue surrounding our upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both can cause morning puffiness.
allergies: natural eye irritants such as pollen and pet dander can produce itching, swelling, and redness in a matter of minutes, while an increase in histamine triggers fluid retention.
diet: salty foods that are high in sodium can make your body retain water.
certain lifestyle factors: habits like smoking cigarettes and alcohol consumption can cause fluids to collect beneath the eyes.
screen time: constant eye strain, sometimes referred to as “computer face” is a common cause behind fine lines around the eyes.
aging: the skin and muscles surrounding the eyes tend to weaken with age.
