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

  • bag of frozen vegetables (or cold chamomile tea or frozen slices of cucumber), 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.
