IT’S NORMAL FOR YOUR EYES TOO LOOK A LITTLE
PUFFY WHEN YOU WAKE UP…
but it’s actually drinking alcohol, eating salty foods, allergies, and watching soppy movies that can produce the bigger bags that stick around for a few hours.
Never fear – here are three simple ways to sort them out…
Choose a Caffeinated Cream: Drinking an espresso won’t help, but applying caffeine topically can – it draws water away from the skin for a tighter appearance. Place cool, moist black-tea bags on your eyes for five minutes or just use an eye cream that contains caffeine.
Try Witch Hazel: Witch hazel is a natural skin-tightening astringent. Soak two cotton pads in cold witch hazel (keep a bottle in the fridge) and apply one to each closed eye for five minutes.
Slice Up a Cucumber: Chilled cucumber slices are a good remedy for bags as they contain enzymes that reduce inflammation – and since the veggie is 90% water, it has an instant cooling effect.
