How to get rid of puffy eyes while you sleep!

I have allergies.  Practically every night I would go to bed and, when I would wake up I was always struggling to breath.  It seemed like my nostrils would swell shut. It was a weird feeling.   Also, I would have puffy eyes.  I figured it was genetics and that there wasn't much I could do about it.  I used eye creams that helped a little, but I figured that there wasn't much more I could do - short of having my eye bags removed surgically - and I wasn't going to do that.

I was watching a Youtube video called HotandFlashy, by a lady named Angie.   She is in her early 50s and I really enjoyed what she had to say.   She recommended sleeping on your back, with your head elevated, to help with eye bags.   Now, this was really a stretch for me.  I was a tummy sleeper.   I couldn't go to sleep if I wasn't on my tummy!  Oh, but my journey to get rid of my eye bags prompted me to give it a try.   While walking through Bed, Bath & Beyond I saw a wedge pillow for back sleeping.   I thought, well, what have I got to lose?

That first night, I really struggled to fall asleep.   When I woke up, I was still on my back! I hadn't rolled over!   I went to the bathroom and guess what?   My eye bags were pretty much gone!   Then, I realized that, not only were my eyes not puffy, but I could BREATH!   My nose wasn't congested!  Wow.  

Seriously, I wish I had watched this video years early.   The bags are pretty much gone and I wake up breathing clearly.   It is wonderful!  Give it a try!
