Cucumber Slices

You’ve seen this cliché trick in movies involving ladies wearing bathrobes, laying down during spa treatments, while cutting up slices of cucumbers over their eyes – well we’ve got good news for you: it works.

  1. Chill a cucumber in the fridge for an hour or two.
  2. Take it out, cut them into thin circles and place them over your entire eyes.
  3. Leave in place for about 20 minutes
  4. Voilà! No more puffed-up eyes!!!

Spoon Therapy

Yes, Spoon therapy is a thing, and we assure you’ll enjoy it—spooning yourself to beauty sleep what could be better?

  1. Freeze at least three metal teaspoons overnight
  2. When you wake up with puffy undereyes, remove the spoons from the freezer and hold them against your eyelids one by one until they warm up to body temperature.
  3. Alternate between placing spoons on top of each other so that all area gets cooled-down treatment.

The coldness helps reduce inflammation temporarily when reducing blood flow overall beneath delicate skin around our eyelid areas.

Eye Massage Therapy

Eye massage methods claimed to help overcome tiny lymphatic vessels’ congestion under our facial dermis—the most common cause behind eye bag formation:

1.Start by gently tapping around temple regions using ring fingers’ pads applied some pressure onto sore spots intermittently moving towards brow bones – continue doing this routine repeatedly; after all who said head-nook wouldn’t feel good?
2.Cup hands together above both eyes closed shut tightly- next week feels slight pressure forward create suction effect air can’t get inside (you might hear popping sound).
3.Resting fingertips horizontally below inner corners each eye push down while slowly gliding outward towards cheeks – do several times if possible to improve texture long term.

Anti-puffiness massages are best done first thing in morning ideally before cleansing face
