How to Treat Puffy Eyes

Use items you already have in the kitchen to fix puffy eyes in just ten minutes.

Puffy eyes are often the result of a lack of sleep, but your eyes don’t have to give that away. Follow the quick steps in this video.

What You Need

  1. Check bag of frozen vegetables (or cold chamomile tea or frozen slices of cucumber)
  2. Check thin towel

Follow These Steps

  1. 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.
