The appearance of the under eye area highly influences how fresh and awake we look. Under eyes play a crucial role in the appearance of our overall face. It can easily make or break the look. Concerns like puffiness, dark circles, lines and wrinkles can make one look tired, unhealthy and older than usual. Although there are several topical treatments that help in decreasing such issues, what really works to bring out the radiant skin is a healthy balanced diet and proper hydration. Understanding the impact of a healthy diet and hydration can help in improving the appearance of the skin by providing youthfulness and bright under eyes.

1. Role of Diet

Diet plays an important role in maintaining the health of the body internally and externally. Consuming the right amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants can enhance the skin health and improve the quality of under eyes as well.


Including Vitamin C in your diet helps in collagen production, which furthermore maintains skin elasticity and structure preventing loose and sagging skin. Foods rich in Vitamin C are citrus fruits like strawberries & oranges, vegetables like broccoli & bell peppers, can help keep the under eye firm and reduce dark circles.


Iron and Antioxidants are crucial for maintaining the appearance of the sensitive skin under your eyes. Iron deficiency is a common cause for dark circles. Iron deficiency leads to poor blood circulation causing dark circles. Consume foods like spinach, meats and cereals that are rich in iron and help in increasing blood circulation. Antioxidants on the other hand help the skin to fight free radicals. Antioxidants help in preventing premature aging, lines and wrinkles. Foods like dark chocolate, leafy vegetables, and green tea are rich in antioxidants and keep the under eye looking fresh and vibrant.

2. Habit of hydration

Water is essential for maintaining the hydration in your body. Proper hydration ensures that the skin retains moisture. When the skin is well hydrated, it looks plump, healthy and glowing. Dehydrated skin can look tired and dull, causing fine lines and wrinkles. The loss of hydration from the face can make the eyes more sunken and the wrinkles, fine line and puffiness to be more prominent.

One common factor causing puffiness is fluid retention, which is caused by excessive intake of salts or dehydration. Drinking sufficient water helps to balance out the puffiness in the sensitive areas like the under eyes.

3. Limiting on salts and sugars

While salt and sugar are important for the body, it can also be a disaster if consumed more than the normal. While certain nutrients are important for the body, some can cause a huge effect on the under eye health.
Excessive consumption of salt can lead to fluid retention in the body, causing swelling and puffiness in the under eye area. Limiting on the consumption of excessive salt in food and avoiding junk food can help in less salt consumed by the body. This can majorly reduce the puffiness under the eyes.
You may not know, but sugar is the major reason why you feel low on energy during the day. It is also a cause of bloating in the body. Consuming refined sugar in huge amounts also breaks down the collagen and elastin in this body. This furthermore causes sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, and a direct move for skin aging. Limit refined sugars and try including natural sweeteners like stevia and fruits to fulfill your sweet tooth!

4. Lifestyle Updates

Making specific life choices and altering them from your life is very important. Beyond having a healthy and balanced diet it is also important to consider some life choices that are needed to make your body more bright and healthy.
Sleep is one of the major factors that provides you the energy and rest for a healthy body and great lifestyle. Sleeping for a good 8-10 hours everyday makes you feel rested, happy, regenerates the skin cells, and does the repairing of the body. Sleeping also helps in reducing the dark circles and makes your eyes wide and awake.
