How to Treat Puffy Eyes

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

What You Need

  • bag of frozen vegetables (or cold chamomile tea or frozen slices of cucumber)
    thin towel
Follow These Two Easy 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.
