Calming puffy eyes can be a challenge. Between allergies, late nights and the occasional tearjerker, it sometimes seems as if the battle never ends. Here are the best remedies to put puffiness in its place once and for all!
Drink a large glass of water after a salty meal or a cocktail. Also try a glass of chamomile or green tea before bed.
Sleep with an extra pillow under your head. The slight elevation will help prevent fluid from settling under the skin around the eyes.
If you wake up with puffy eyes, apply an eye gel (link no longer available) with soothing ingredients, like aloe, oat protein and sodium hyaluronate.
Dampen two bags of caffeinated black tea and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Once chilled, place them over your eyes for 10 minutes. The caffeine and cold help constrict blood vessels and drain fluid.
