Waking up with puffy eyes is hardly a crisis, but it can really decrease your self esteem, especially if that miracle concealer isn’t doing the trick. Try these amazing tips to eliminate puffy eyes in just seconds, and create an even, flawless base for your makeup – sans surgery!
Pour a cup of tea and allow the bag to cool down to room temperature. Apply directly over your closed eyes, then lie down and relax. The caffeine helps to constrict the blood vessels and actually reduces swelling and inflammation.
The best type to use are chamomile and green tea, but any caffeinated beverage will do the trick. If you’re ever in need of this without a moments notice, fill an ice cube tray with the mixture, and keep it in the fridge for easy access!
Carefully remove the skin from a small potato, then dice into little pieces. Using a fork, mash the inside until the consistency is smooth and soft. Apply onto your eyes and try to relax. The starch from the potato combats inflammation and will decrease the puffy appearance of your eyes.
Slice a cucumber and place directly over the entire eye area. The cool, astringent property helps to decrease swelling in a matter of seconds and will also help with any dark patches or discolouration of skin. Use on all aspects of your skin for a quick and natural pick-me-up.
Apply some coffee grounds onto the base of your eyelids, then sit back and relax for 10-15 minutes. The coffee is packed with antioxidants which helps to eliminate baggy eyelids and save skin which has been left swollen or distressed overnight.
Gently whip 1-2 egg whites and apply just below the eye. They actually help to tighten the skin, and will decrease those puffy eyes in no-time!
