Thanks for writing to HCM

Some degree of facial puffiness is normal.If it is excessive and persistent,causes should be searched for.
Normally facial puffiness is due to accumulation of fluid within the tissues and muscles of face.Other causes may be lack of sleep,allergic reactions, dehydration,hormonal fluctuations,surgery,injury,eye infections etc.
so, first you should take plenty of fluids, proper exercise,reduce salt intake,take lot of green leafy vegetables,sound sleep,use proper cosmetics over face.
If your symptoms persist,get examine by a medicine specialist.

Take Care
