how to get rid of puffy eyes

We all get them: puffy eyes. Whether it be from not getting enough sleep, eating salty foods, or having a long, rough day, puffy eyes are the worst. Here you will find simple holistic tips to help get rid of the puffiness under those tired eyes.

  1. It may sound clichè, but cut up a few slices of cucumber and place them on your eyes for about 10 minutes. Cucumbers contain minerals that soothe irritation and puffiness.

  2. Buy some green tea! The caffeine in the tea bags help restrict blood vessels, reducing your puffy eyes. All you have to do is brew two green tea bags, let them cool down, and place them over your eyes for 10 minutes.

  3. Potatoes are also a weird way to get rid of swollen, tired eyes. The starch in the potatoes eases the irritation. First, peel the skin off, and slice two thin and wide strips of the potato, and place on eyes for 10 to 15 minutes.

  4. Place a cool compress on your eyes. You can use two spoons, an ice pack, or an ice cube. The coldness helps decompress the puffiness and tighten up the skin around your eyes, while relaxing blood vessels.

  5. Strawberries! They contain alpha hydroxy acid that makes your skin look smooth and young. All you have to do is chill the strawberries for 30 minutes in the fridge, remove the tops and slice them into thick pieces, and place the slices over your eyes for 10 minutes.

Try any of these home remedies to cure your puffy eyes, and wa – la! Your tired eyes will disappear!
