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!
