Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes

Look Deeply Into My Eyes & Consider This...No More Puffy Eyes!

Sometimes it’s easier to fake a great night of sleep than getting it.
Here’s some Pantry to Pretty Bits on how to fix those swollen eyes!

 With Tea Bags
Tea contains tannins, as well as having caffeine. Both of these elements combined help shrink the swollen tissue, while constricting the blood vessels, ultimately reducing swelling,

How To:  
  • Get your tea bags wet and place them in the refrigerator, so they can cool
  • Remove tea bags from frig.
  • Lie down on your back & place cold, damp tea bags over your puffy eyes 
  • Leave tea bags on your eyes for 10 minutes 
  • Remove, rinse and now you are revived 

With Cucumbers
Cucumbers have a hydrating effective, and will reduce puffiness and redness due to their anti-inflammatory effect.

How To:
  • Get  a cucumber and cut it into slices
  •  You want to make sure that you cut them large enough to effect the under area of your eye, as this is where the puffiness usually stays
  • Place the slices in a baggy
  • Place the cucumber slices in the frig. for a few hours
  • Lie down on your back & place the slices over your eyelids
  • Leave on your eyes for 15 minutes 

Would You Like To Spoon?
Applying a chilled spoon to your eyes.  This works well because the cold temperature of the spoon constricts the blood vessels, helping with redness and puffiness around the eye.

How To:
  • Place 4 metal spoons in the frig.
  • When chilled, place a spoon on each eye socket
  • As the spoons begin to warm, switch them with the spoons chilling
  • Continue this process until swelling subsides
