Big day ahead and you’ve been working hard… late nights, lots of pressure, but you’re holding up all right. Sounds good, except that your eyes might begin to look like heavy sacks with every passing day (and night). What can you do? You hardly have the time for a full night’s sleep; forget a facial!
Here are 5 quick and effective ways to get rid of those puffy eyes before it’s too late –
Just cut 2 slices out of a refrigerated cucumber and place them on your eyes for around half an hour. Not only will your eyes feel lighter and fresher, but you will also wake up recharged!
Tea to the Rescue
Take two teabags (green or regular) and dip them in hot water for some time. Then drain out excess water and place the tea bags in your refrigerator to cool. Place the bags on your eyes for 15-20 minutes three to four times a day. Your eyes will start feeling alive again and you’ll see those dark circles disappear.
Spoons can be a Boon!
Cool six to eight metal spoons in cold water or in your refrigerator. Place the scoops of two spoons on both eyes till they warm up. Then repeat with other sets of cold spoons. This simple trick can quickly relax your eyes and make them look and feel like their normal self!
Yes, you read it right! Slice some yummy, fresh and cooled strawberries and place them over your eyes for 15-20 minutes twice a day. Both you and your eyes will feel refreshed after the welcome break and the puffiness will reduce drastically.
Apart from these quick tips, drink lots of water and keep your body and skin hydrated. This will reduce the puffiness in no time. It’s a good idea to hydrate your face’s tired skin with some pure hyaluronic serum to make it alive, fresh, soft and smooth. After all, it’s your skin’s way of drinking in the lost moisture.
These surefire tips to reduce puffiness and dark circles around your eyes work like a charm and make sure you’re ready to face any challenge life throws your way. However, if the puffiness continues in spite of trying these and you notice irritation or other alarming signs, it is best to take it up with your physician.
