Well-slept or not, puffy eyes can sneak up on the best of us. While the unwelcome trait can be the result of genetics, there are also a few things we might be doing unwittingly to welcome them. Fortunately, there are some fairly easy fixes ahead. Keep scrolling to find out ways to prevent and soothe puffy eyes.
Processed foods are very high in salt. Limiting these foods from your diet and replacing them with whole, healthy foods will not only lower your risk of puffy eyes but also increase energy levels. You may also want to incorporate taking a daily supplement like Nature Made Vitamin E ($11).
After applying a cold compress to eyes (like cucumber, a chilled face mask, or water and ice), follow it up by placing warm tea bags wrapped in a paper towel on your eyes. The tannins in the tea will help naturally reduce puffiness.
When all else fails, call in the big beauty guns. We love Kiehl’s eye products. Try storing this stick in the fridge to keep it cool.
