Your lifestyle, your quirk
It seems that everyone wants to know what to do about these annoying imperfections. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options out there. Whether you want to minimize, do some deep maintenance, spend a fortune or make your own concoction, you can likely figure something out. To begin, let’s start with the easiest solution out there. This may sound too easy to believe, but some water can do wonders. If you’ve just been crying, or you have gone night after night with four hours of sleep, then a few splashes of ICE COLD water can really do the trick, at least for a few hours. Repeat as needed. Also, always stay hydrated. This might sound trite, but the reason you always hear that you should stay hydrated is because water is a remedy for countless conditions. The more hydrated you are, the healthier you are in every way, including the state of your eyes. Eight full glasses a day should do it.
Next, there are many options that cost less than $5. Are you a tea drinker? Consider resting a teabag (after you’ve soaked it in boiling water and it has cooled enough) on your eyes for 20 minutes before bed. Cover the bag with a soft cloth to ensure that there’s adequate pressure, and listen to music or meditate to make the time go by. Do so every night for two weeks. If you don’t like tea, do you like cucumbers? There’s a reason spas use cucumbers on clients in every movie! Get two fresh slices, making sure they’re well-chilled. Rest one on each eye for 10 minutes minimum, then relax. They have astringent properties that will cool and soothe swollen eyes. If you want something a little heavy-duty, whip up some egg whites. Do so until they’re very thick, and apply some of the ointment underneath your eyes for a few minutes. These are also said to prevent wrinkles, though there is no scientific evidence. One tip to prevent puffy eyes is actually very interesting – sleep with your head propped up. Get an extra fluffy pillow, as this will prevent fluid from accumulating in unsavory places. Don’t expect immediate results, but over time, this should help a bit. Lastly, there are numerous eye creams out there. However, be sure to use one that includes vitamin E – this is the strongest ingredient out there for puffy eyes, and you’ll need it!
