Looking To Perk Up Swollen, Puffy Eyes? Here’s How!

I’m one of the lucky ones…I don’t normally suffer from bags under my eyes. When I do, it’s usually because I’m having some sort of reaction/environmental allergy or sleep deprived.

When they do appear out of the blue, I’m on a mission to get rid of them as quickly as I can. I’ve collected a few different remedies over the years that help reduce the puffiness and swelling, you’ll find them listed them below.

Nothing fancy, you’ll likely have most of these items in your fridge or pantry right now.

Tip: If you have frequent occurences, try cutting salt intake from your diet (though don’t overdo it, salt is good for you) and drink plenty of water. Waking up with them can be a sign of fluid retention.

Each of the remedies and treatments should be applied when you have a chance to rest with head elevated for at least 10 minutes.

*Careful that nothing gets inside eyes.

A few tips:

Old-Wives Tale: We’ve all heard of this tip, using Preparation H under the eyes will help reduce swelling. The problem is that the ingredients in this product are not safe to use around the eye area. Should you try it? Pass. It’s not worth causing injury or damage to your face.
