    It really sounds crazy, but as a matter of fact, hemorrhoid cream can exactly help puffy eyes. Owing to hemorrhoid creams contain phenylephrine, which could make blood flowing less in the area where you plaster it. Besides, if you massage around your puffy eyes with hemorrhoid, it can effectively promote the blood circulation and the effect on puffy eyes are obvious. However, as far as i am concerned, i don't recommend you to use hemorrhoid cream on your eyes, because hemorrhoid cream may cause side effects, such as making your eyes skin be sensitive or allergies. You'd better choose another way, like using the way of warm compress or adoption of tea bags. Besides, using the eye cream, which is specially for eyes, instead of hemorrhoid cream should be a better choice.

    Puffy eyes are swellings under eyes. Hemorrhoid creams contain vasoconstrictors -- ingredients that shrink your blood vessels. It's really crazy that use hemorrhoid creams to help with puffy eyes. And there is little good effects on puffy eyes that by using hemorrhoid creams. In fact, some ingredients in hemorrhoid creams will irritate eyes and make the issue worse.So do not use hemorrhoid creams for longer than the package suggests, unless you have a doctor's approval. Puffy eyes are so noticeable that people seek to many ways to get rid of it. Cool cucumber slices or a cold washcloth placed under the eyes can also help. Tea tree oil also works as well reducing puffiness under eyes.
