Part 1 of 2 parts

Do you have puffy eyes due to aging, drinking, smoking, stress or just about anything else? Don't despair - there is help and it's free! The four remedies listed below are free and easy to do and will go a long way in reducing your puffy eyes.

1. Tea - black or green. Teas with caffeine help constrict blood vessels and diminish swelling (caused by aging, smoking, stress, etc), while herbal teas (especially chamomile tea) have wonderfully effective anti-irritants that soothe and reduce puffiness.

Directions: Steep 2 bags of your choice of tea in hot water for 4-5 minutes. Let cool until the bags are comfortably warm to the touch. Lie down, close your eyes, and place a tea bag over each eye; then cover with a soft cloth. During hot months, put the cooked tea bags in the refrigerator and apply to eyes when needed for a refreshing, de-puffing experience.

2. Spoons. If you're in need of an ultra-quick reduction of your puffy eyes, tea spoons, believe it or not, work amazingly.

Directions: Put 4 or 6 spoons in the refrigerator. Lie down, close your eyes, and put a spoon on each eye. As the spoon warms, replace it with a cold one from the fridge.

3. Cucumber. This is perhaps the best-known remedy, known by supermodels as a sure-fire and super-quick way to reduce puffiness right before a photo-shoot. The cucumber's contracting qualities cause your blood vessels to constrict, quickly and dramatically reducing puffy eyes.

Directions: Lie down, close your eyes and place a thin slice on each eye. Relax for five to ten minutes while the cucumbers cure your puffiness.

4. Egg whites. Here's a real souffl for the face with some amazing age-defying benefits. This one's wonderful for reducing crow's feet as well!

Directions: Beat one egg white until stiff. Apply with a brush or soft cloth around eye areas (inner and outer) as well as along your cheekbones. Leave on for ten minutes. Wash off by spaying the egg white with water,then use use cold water on a cotton ball or washcloth to remove.
