Crying Before Sleep: How to Reduce Puffy Eyes in the Morning

Who hasn't cried before? No one. Well, crying is a normal thing. It's an expression of one's emotions and feelings. It can either be sadness, anger and frustration. Sometimes we even cry when we're happy.

I know that at least once in your life you have cried... all night. Either you were scolded by your parents, conflict with friends, or even breakups. It could be the most dreadful situation to have ever happened in your life. But the trouble doesn't stop there. What's worse than sulking on a pillow in your bedroom all night?

Well, for me it's waking up in the morning with HUGE puffy eyes. I guess we've all been there. And of course, it's embarrassing to come out and let people witness your humongous eyes that look like they've just been stung by a swarm of really pissed off bees.

The question is... How can you avoid having such horrific swollen eyes in the morning?

Find out after the jump!


First of all, DO NOT go straight to sleep after crying. The swollen part on your eyes are extra tears. Going to sleep right after crying isn't going to help, because the lids holding the tears will not be moving and so they won't be able to rinse off and clean your eyes.

 Try doing some of these methods to avoid puffy eyes in the morning:
  • As much as possible, avoid rubbing your eyes as it will irritate the skin and cause redness and more swelling.
  • Wash your eyes with water. It'll help flush and clean the extra tears away.
  • Cold compress. You may use ice cube and gently compress it around the swollen eye area.
  • Apply a slice of cold cucumber on both eyes. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Apply eye cream that specifically targets puffiness. 
Rest and give your eyes a bit more time before you sleep. Drink lots of water. And once swelling starts to subside, you may hit the sack and have a good night's sleep.
