(Cold) Spoons

You might be surprised about this home remedy. It’s effective because it helps to make the skin around the eyes tighter, and also relaxes the blood vessels. This makes it an effective solution for puffy/tired eyes. First, chill 5-6 metal spoons in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Hold the rounded part of the chilled spoons against one eye for a couple of minutes until the spoon gets warm. When the spoon warms up replace it with another one from the fridge.

Tea Bags

Tea not only is a healthy and delicious beverage, but tea bags can help to treat puffy/irritated eyes. That’s true for both green or black tea bags. The reason is they contain anti-irritant properties that help to lower swelling surrounding the eyes. In addition they can help to treat inflammation and redness.

First, place 2 used tea bags in the fridge for half an hour. Then lie down and place the tea bags on your eyelids. Let them stay there for 10-15 minutes. Repeat this process a couple times each day.


Peel, wash, and dry a medium potato. Then grate it and put the shavings into a clean cloth. Next tie up the cloth. Afterwards put the cloth on your eyelids for many minutes. Repeat the whole procedure many times until the puffiness goes down.


This is one of the easiest yet effective ways to rid puffiness around your eyes. When the body is hydrated well there’s less of a chance for water retention. That can cause various parts of your body to swell, including under the eyes.

It’s critical to drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. You should also reduce your salt intake in order to lower your body’s water retention. In addition, you should avoid beverages that are dehydrating, including carbonated and caffeinated beverages.

Egg Whites

This type of remedy works because of the skin-tightening features that can help bags under eyes disappear and also aid in removing wrinkles. First, separate the 2 eggs’ yolks/whites and place the whites into a bowl. Next, whip the egg whites totally until they are thick. Afterwards, add a couple drops of witch hazel. That is an ingredient that tightens skin. Then use a brush/cloth to add the mixture to below your eyes. Next, let it dry. Let the mixture stay under your eyes for approximately 15 minutes. Complete this procedure daily for a couple days.


You might have seen this home remedy on TV shows or ads and wondered if it works. The fruit can be an excellent remedy for the treatment of puffy eyes. That’s because the enzymes and astringent features of the cucumbers can help to lower inflammation and make the skin tighter. This type of remedy will also help to remove wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes.

The first step is to slice the cucumber into slices that are slick. Chill the slices in the fridge for 10 minutes. Next, put the cold slices on your eyelids for around 10 minutes or until the slices become warm. Make sure to repeat this process many times per day in order to get the best results.
