Get rid of puffy eyes instantly with these top 4 home remedies that are cheaper and more effective than chemical products

It’s really horrible to wake up in the morning only to see those droopy eye bags in the mirror. Puffy eyes occur due to stress, lack of sleep or allergies etc. Though there are a lot of products available in the market that claim to cure your puffy eyes within a blink, it’s always a wise decision to opt for home remedies. They don’t harm your delicate skin around the eyes and are cheaper (or maybe free!) too.

Here are the top 4 home remedies to get rid of puffy eyes instantly:-


1) Water:-

Water is considered as a boon for the skin. If you manage to stay hydrated everyday, you will most probably won’t face the issues of swollen eyes ever. If you drink plenty of water, your body will naturally flush out toxic fluids that cause swelling. Don’t forget to take water breaks frequently during the day. Women should take about nine cups of water each day, and men should take about 13. It should be noted that teas, soups, fruits and vegetables also add to your daily water intake.

2) Ice:-

Ice is one of the easiest ways to get rid of a puffy face, after water. You can get rid of puffy eyes just by rubbing an ice cube along your eyelid. But this method won’t work if you have got extreme swelling under the eyes. Then you have to dip your face in a bowl of ice water. The coldness of the ice will increase the blood circulation around your eyes that in turn will reduce the puffiness.

3) Sliced Potatoes:-

Potatoes contain the anti-inflammatory enzyme catecholase, that are proved to cure bagginess and reduce dark circles. Cut a potato in about four to six half-inch-thick slices. The slices should be large enough to cover your eye. Now close your eyes and place one slice on each eye. Potatoes contain the anti-inflammatory enzyme catecholase, that are proved to cure bagginess and reduce dark circles. Leave it for 20 minutes, wash your eyes with warm then cold water and apply moisturizer. The starch from the potato will draw out toxins and the moisturizer will protect the skin from any dryness due to the potato. If you need to remove the eyebags urgently, you have to repeat with fresh slices on each eye until under-eye puffiness has been diminished. Otherwise you can do it everyday, for a long term effect. As stated earlier, it works for under eye darnkess as well.

4) Green Tea:-

Green tea is enriched with antioxidants that fight with harmful free radicals that break down skin cells. It also have anti-inflammatory properties. The tannins present in green tea work as mild astringent and constricts blood flow that causes puffiness. To use this, soak the teabags in ice water for 10 minutes and use them for cold compress for about 15 to 20 minutes. Your eyebags will be gone after 2-3 sittings.
