What You Need
- bag of frozen vegetables (or cold chamomile tea or frozen slices of cucumber)
- thin towel
Follow These Steps
Place a cooling agent on your eyes
Wrap a bag of frozen vegetables in a thin towel (you want to be able to feel the cold through it). Place it over closed eyes for 10 minutes. (Keep your head upright so gravity has a chance to help remove the fluid you’re retaining.)
Tip: Another way to reduce puffiness: Soak a washcloth in cold chamomile tea and place it on your eyes for 10 minutes. The anti-inflammatory properties in chamomile will help reduce the puff.
Tip: The old tried-and-true cucumber trick works, too. Place cold cucumber slices (put them in the freezer for a few minutes) over your eyes for 10 minutes.
