How to Get Rid of Puffy Eyes

cucumber slicesSome say that having tired, puffy eyes is caused by having lack of sleep, but actually they are caused by different factors like stress and hereditary. Check out how to provide relief to puffy eyes.

Cold spoon treatment – Take a metal spoon and run it under cold water. Once the spoon is cold enough, place it on the puffy area for at least 60 seconds.

Hemorrhoid cream – Apply it over the puffy area. Check the label for ingredients such as yeast and shark’s liver oil, which provide better results.

Cucumber – Use thin cucumber slices as compresses over the closed eyes. Place it on the eyes for about 30 minutes.

Tea bags – A black tea bag soaked in cold water on each eye for ten minutes will reduce swelling caused by fluid retention. Gently press from inner to outer corners to hasten drainage.

Avoid salty foods – These cause the under-eye area (as well as the rest of your body) to hold fluid and appear bloated and puffy.

Elevate your head when you sleep – This is to keep the fluid from settling around your eyes.
