If the eyes are the mirror to the soul, some people’s souls look puffy, dark, tired, and wrinkled. Fortunately, these simple tricks will perk you up.
#1 Hemorrhoid cream
Models and performers have reduced puffiness and wrinkles with hemorrhoid cream for years—the stuff tightens puffy areas quickly and reduces wrinkles. If the odor of the cream is too strong, mix a bit of your moisturizer into it before applying. And be careful not to get any of the cream in your eyes.
#2 Switch Your Sleep Position
Are you a side or stomach sleeper? Gravity causes fluid to collect under your eyes, which might explain those pesky bags. Try to sleep on your back and add an extra pillow under your head.
#3 Blink rapidly
When you’re in a deep sleep, you don’t blink, which can also lead to build-up around the eyes. After getting up, blink rapidly for 30 seconds to help the fluids dissipate.
Caffeinated tea, which contains natural tannins, is a mild diuretic and long-used by grandmothers and runway models for reducing eye puffiness. Soak two tea bags in warm water, and then chill the bags for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Place one tea bag on each eye for five minutes, and your eyes will feel fresh.
Take two metal teaspoons and hold them under very cold running water for a few minutes. Then lie down and place the bowls of the spoons over your eyelids for 30 to 60 seconds. The sharp cold of the metal will revive tired eyes and may boost your energy at the same time.
#6 Avoid touching your eyes
It’s so difficult to not touch or rub your eyes – especially when they’re feeling dry or itchy – but in doing so you’re just going to make them feel even drier and itchier. It’s a vicious cycle. Plus, the area around your eyes is the most sensitive area of your face – the skin has very little give and fine lines will form. If you must, use a cool washcloth on your eyes to reduce discomfort.
