Tips To Clear Black Eye

Black eye can be caused by the bleeding under the skin around your eye. It is usually from the blow or other trauma. At this time, this article is going to give you several tips to care for a black eye. By following several tips below, you will get some easy ways to minimize the swelling and discomfort, and also to speed the recovery.


A black eye is the result of a contusion, which is a fancy name for a bruise. Bruises occur whenever your body takes a sharp blow that breaks capillaries and causes blood to leak into surrounding tissues, collecting at the point of damage. Eventually, when blood leaks into the top layer of skin, it shows as purple. For some reason, when you get that purple bruising around an eye, people call it a black eye. We suppose "purple eye" just didn't sound right. And "black eye" is easier to remember than "bruising around the eye."


What exactly causes them to happen in the first place? Dark bags under the peepers are usually caused by the loss of collagen and elastin. These two skin proteins are what hold fats together and when they are not present, fats in our eyes tend to transfer to the skin under it which will then cause permanent bags. As for dark circles, they are caused by haemoglobin content under our peepers. When blood rushes slowly and circulation is bad, it causes a dark tint to appear.


Top 6 tips and tricks to help you clear up that black eye.


1. Put ice to it


The first and most obvious thing to do when dealing with a black eye is to pack it with ice. You see it is not the meat that makes it so effective, it is the cold. Cold works by keeping the swelling down. Also helps with internal bleeding by constricting the blood vessels. Internal bleeding is what causes the blue and black color to appear on your eye.


2. Sleep with your head that elevated on the two pillows. It can help to reduce the swelling of the eyelids.


3. Use a cold soda can


Boxers and MMA athletes use a small metal device that is extremely cold, in between rounds. This is to keep their faces from hemorrhaging from the punches that they have sustained. This can be replicated outside of a boxing ring by using a cold can of soda. Put a clean can against your eye for about 5 minutes and then take it off for 10 minutes. Keep doing this process for a couple of hours. Remember to not put pressure directly on your eyeball.


4. Let it heal


Once a black eye has formed there is little you can do to keep the color away. The swelling can be reduced but the color is hard to hide. You can cover it up with makeup, but even then it is hard to conceal. The black around the eye will go through many color changes, with most of it clearing up within a week. So just ride out the process and it will be over quicker than you know it.


5. Do not take Aspirin


If you take something, doctors recommend using acetaminophen. This is commonly found in products such as Tylenol. Aspirin is an anticoagulant, which means that it makes your blood clot less effectively. This will increase the amount of discoloration, because it will be harder for the bleeding to stop.


6. Blowing your nose is a no no!


If you have an injury that resulted from a blow, then it is best not to try to blow your nose. This may make you uncomfortable because it will sometimes feel like you must blow your nose. But trust me, if you have a fractured eye socket, your face will swell up like a balloon. This is caused by air seeping under your eyelids.
