At the same time it will give relief from redness and inflammation. For treating puffy eyes, you need to place moist tea bags over your eyes. For this, first soak the teabags in hot water for a few minutes and then take them out and let them to cool down to a warm temperature. Just lie down and put the tea bags over the eyelids and cover them with a soft cloth. After some time the swelling around the eyes will reduce.

3. Cucumber

Chilled cucumber is a good way to treat puffy eyes. The enzymes and the astringent properties present in cucumber helps to reduce inflammation. Take one cucumber and cut them into thick slices. Put the slices of cucumber in the refrigerator for ten minutes. Now place the cold cucumber slices on closed eyes for around ten minutes or until the cucumber becomes warm. Repeat the process several times a day. This remedy will also help to get rid of the wrinkles around your eyes and will brighten up your complexion.

4. Potato

Just like cucumbers, potatoes are also effective in getting rid of puffy eyes. The starch present in potatoes has got anti-inflammatory properties that can help in the treatment of puffy eyes. Take a medium sized potato, peel it, wash and then dry it. Now grate the potato and put them in a clean cloth and tie it up. Now place this cloth over the eyelids for several minutes. Repeat the process several times until the puffiness around the eyes gets reduced. This remedy is also helpful in treating headaches.

5. Egg Whites

Egg whites have got skin tightening properties that can give relief to puffy eyes as well as help in the prevention of wrinkles. Take two eggs in a bowl after separating the yolk from it. Now whip the egg whites properly until you get a stiff consistency. Add a few drops of witch hazel to it which is also a natural skin-tightening astringent. Then with the help of brush or soft cloth, apply this mixture under your eyes and allow it to dry. This remedy will make the skin feel tighter and look less puffy.

6. Cold Spoons

Take five to six metal spoons and place it in your refrigerator for five to ten minutes. Now take out the cold spoon and hold the rounded portion against your eye for a few minutes until the spoon becomes warm. As the spoon warms, replace it with a cold one from the refrigerator. This will help in tightening up the skin around your eyes. It will also relax the blood vessels thus offering relief to the tired eyes. This simple home remedy is surprisingly very effective when it comes to treating puffy eyes. In case you are not comfortable using a metal spoon, then you can use a bag of frozen peas.

  20. If you have a face wash/scrub/mask whatever with mint in it, use it. It’ll cut down on the swelling. After a good cry, pop an aspirin (or if you strongly prefer herbal remedies, a strong tincture or tea of white willow bark). The anti-inflammatory medicine will cut down on the puffiness. Don’t consume too much salt the next day.

  25. Having dealt with patients with issues related to puffy eyes, I know first hand the sheer frustration that patients feel when they cannot fathom the reason behind their issues. However, if experience is anything to go by, then I should add that puffy eyes are best dealt with using natural remedies such as getting adequate sleep and performing regular exercise. Also, a product really making the rounds for curing puffy eyes is SwellNoMore. Have you heard about it?
