Do you ever get up and look in the mirror after getting what you thought was a restful night sleep and see bags and dark circles under your eyes? Mine get all puffy like I’ve been crying for hours, and I totally hate it. Having puffy eyes makes me look and feel older. But sometimes my eyes just hurt.
Caffeinated tea contains natural tannins and is used by movie stars and models to reduce puffiness in your eyes. Soak two tea bags in warm water for about twenty-five minutes, then put the bags into the freezer to chill for a few minutes. Place one bag on each eye for up to five minutes and your eyes will feel refreshed afterward.
Not just great for salads or sandwiches, cucumbers actually help to reduce red, sore eyes. Cucumbers are a fantastic remedy that has been used for years. Take 2 slices of fresh cucumber from the refrigerator and place them on your eyes. Go and lay down and rest for 25 minutes. When you get up, your eyes will feel more alive and less puffy.
Okay, I know you are saying, huh? Eyeglasses? Well, yes, a specific type of eyeglasses called Freeze Frames which I use all the time help to relieve allergies, tired and puffy eyes, even headaches. They have these little gel pads you put in the freezer that is cooling on the eyes, taking away swelling and soreness. Best of all they look like sunglasses so nobody knows.
A Little More H2O
That’s right, drinking water can really help with puffy eyes. Human beings don’t drink nearly enough water throughout the day. Increasing your water intake can go a long way to not just helping your eyes, but your energy level, helping you heal faster, and reduce the swelling your eyes feel when not enough sleep has been had.
A Slice of Potatoe
Another veggie to the rescue, potatoes aren’t just a source of vitamins but are great for puffy eyes. Take two slices run them under cold-cold water, place them on your eyes for up to 20 minutes and watch the puffiness and dark circles vanish. I’ve done this on more than one occasion and it works!
This one is a given. Sleep is vitally important to our overall health. When we don’t get enough sleep, tired and puffy eyes, body aches and pains, colds and flu’s strike us immediately. So getting a good night’s rest is vastly needed, especially if you wish to be rid of those dark circles under those baby blues of yours. If you can’t get a good night’s sleep, then make sure you at least take a nap. Even a few hours sleep can make a big difference.
