Dear Dawn
Puffy eyes can be a symptom of heart or kidney disease, fluid retention, sinus infection or allergy, or just plain tiredness. Maybe you should go for a good medical checkup to exclude any serious causes. If there is no medical reason, you could try an eyegel, reduce your salt intake, get enough rest and using a cooling mask or cold damp teabags!
