Puffy, dark, tired eyes aren’t ever going to be in fashion, and they can be difficult to treat. Unless you’re an expert, makeup can often draw attention to the eye area, so your best option is to treat them there and then.
Thankfully, these tips from Reader’s Digest might be able to get your peepers back to normal.
Caffeinated tea, which contains natural tannins, is a mild diuretic and long-used by grandmothers and runway models for reducing eye puffiness. Soak two tea bags in warm water, and then chill the bags for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Place one tea bag on each eye for five minutes, and your eyes will feel fresh.
For many people, tiredness causes dark circles under the eyes and that can add years to their appearance. If you can’t catch up on your rest, place slices of ripe avocado under each eye, or try applying a paste of ground almonds and milk to lighten the dark shadows. Don’t want to put avocado on your face?
Take two metal teaspoons and hold them under very cold running water for a few minutes. Then lie down and place the bowls of the spoons over your eyelids for 30 to 60 seconds. The sharp cold of the metal will revive tired eyes and may boost your energy at the same time.
When your eyes are red and puffy, cut a couple slices of cold cucumber, lie down, and put a slice over each eye for 30 minutes. Once you’re up, your eyes will be brighter and your body refreshed.
