You’d think getting an adequate amount of rest and eating a healthy diet would make under-eye puffiness disappear, but alas, we still see bags underneath our eyes. And while these bags aren’t nearly as bad as the ones we encounter following a late night out, they can be just as annoying. Since we’re tired of people asking if we’re tired, we reached out to a few skin experts for a few puffy-eye remedies.
Watch Now: How to Get Rid of Puffy Eyes
Use a Cold Spoon
Leave two clean teaspoons in your freezer, and on puffy mornings, simply press them against your eyes for a few minutes. (Just make sure you rinse them in cold water first, to avoid a sticky Dumb & Dumber moment.) Celeb dermatologist Dr. Brandt has even confirmed it does work.
Grab a Tea Bag
Drop two tea bags (unprocessed green or black tea is best) in a mug of hot water for a minute, let cool to a safe temperature, and then apply to eyes for three minutes. The natural caffeine in the tea will immediately help constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling.
Get an Eye Roller
A good eye roller packs all the powerhouse components previously mentioned: an icy metal ball, a caffeine-laced serum, and a pressing motion. Our editors put popular rollers to the test and found the best ones.
