Cold therapy

Splash cold water on your eyes or you may keep a towel soaked in cold water on your eyes. You can also put some ice cubes on a towel and place it over your eyes. This will instantly reduce the puffiness under your eyes. Cold spoons work magic too. Keep a few spoons in the freezer. Place the round bottom of the spoon over the puffy area for about five minutes. You will notice the puffy eye look vanishing in thin air!

Honey dip

Take half a cup of water and put a tablespoon of honey in it. Soak some cotton balls in the mixture. Now, place these wet cotton balls on your puffy under-eye area. Keep it for 10-15 minutes for optimum results. This will prevent your under eye skin from sagging and reduce its puffiness.


One of the most effective ways to make eye bags disappear is using cucumber slices. All you have to do is cut cucumber slices and put them in the refrigerator. Once chilled, keep them on your eyes for a few minutes. With a regular use, you will notice the under eye bags disappearing over a period of time. You can also blend cucumber, and apply this paste (chilled) under your eyes.

Tea bags

Tea bags can work wonders for puffy eyes as well. For this, place used tea bags (preferably green tea) in the freezer. Make sure that the used bags are dipped only in hot water, and not in milk. Take them out and put them on your eyes for approximately 15 minutes. The therapy will show an instant effect on your under eye puffiness and dark circles.
