    Well, yes, depression can lead to puffy eyes. According to some experts, there are many reasons which can cause puffy eyes, but you should know that they may also appear when you are depressed. We can say it is because of the disorders which happen in your body. Also, you should know that the skin of the eyelids is the thinnest in the body. For this reason any swelling underneath the lids or discoloration may be quite obvious. And Overconsumption of salt, which causes fluid retention, allergies or infection, can cause inflammation and swelling, and the puffy eyes. So to treat puffy eyes, you can try anti-inflammatory medications and skin treatments. But you should also treat your underlying depression.
