What Are The Causes Of Under Eye Swelling?

1. Eating Too Much Salt; this is actually one of the reasons why you may notice under eye swelling. Too much salt can raise the sodium content in your blood which can either cause edema in the legs i.e. accumulation of fluid in your legs or even under your eyes. This is perhaps the most common cause of under eye swelling and for your own good, you should cut down on the salt you consume to avoid developing more severe health problems.

2. Not Getting Enough Sleep; this is another cause of this condition that should be taken seriously. It should be taken seriously because if your lack of sleep is causing your under eyes to swell up, it means you are significantly depriving yourself of quality sleep and this can take a toll on your overall health. Reason being that lack of sleep can upset the blood sugar level and even pave way for heart diseases to develop and as such, it is one factor to consider and take seriously.

3. Smoking; this is another reason for swollen under eye. If you're a chronic smoker, then that is the reason for the eye bags. Smoking generally is not healthy at all and as such, for your own sake, you must cut down on how frequently you smoke for your own good. If smoking starts making you develop eye bags, then it could have also harmed your kidneys and liver significantly and thus is not what a well thinking individual should ever hope for.

4. Eye Infections; certain eye infections can also cause a swollen under eyes. If you're suffering from eye infections like conjunctivitis, then you might have swollen under eyes due to it. But any eye infection that causes swollen under eyes should be checked out as it has the possibility of causing blindness.
