Contrary to popular belief, the cause of swelling and bruising under the eyes is not sitting at night in front of a TV screen or computer monitor.

Symptoms of seasonal allergies, in addition to swollen eyelids, are itching, sneezing, constantly irritated mucous membranes of the nose and eyes. For allergies, it is better to see a doctor, but if you cannot afford a visit soon, then try simple over-the-counter medications such as Claritin and pseudoephedrine group drugs.
Start taking a multivitamin. Bags under the eyes arise from a lack of B vitamins such as B6 and B12, as well as from a lack of folic acid. Calcium and Magnesium improve adrenal function. If you have circulatory problems, smoke and consume a lot of salt, do not be surprised that swelling and bruising are your eternal companions. Reduce your salt intake, quit smoking, or at least reduce your daily dose to a minimum, and your blood vessels will become stronger and less prone to blood stagnation.
