Puffy Eyes: Home Remedies That Actually Work - Part 2

Apr 10, 2008
Puffy eyes caused by aging, drinking, smoking, stress or anything else? This is part 2 of our article on powerful home remedies that actually work.

Today we start with the common potato. Always underrated, this starchy gravy-mate has a large spectrum of healing and anti-aging qualities, including pampering your puffy eyes.

In large parts of Europe the potato is tried and true as an agent to soothe an aching head, painful joints as well as other inflammatory conditions. Additionally, potato starch works as an anti-inflammatory agent to ease your puffy eyes.

Directions: Peel one potato, then wash and dry it. Grate the potato as finely as possible. Place the pulp in a clean cloth and fold to make a poultice. Place the poultice on your eyelids for 15 minutes, and behold your de-puffed eyes.

Cold water. My personal experience with this one is wonderful. Before heading off to work, when you just have a few minutes to get ready, you don't have time to pamper away with cucumber slices and potatoes, but not to worry. Cold water works in less than 8 seconds!

Directions: Turn on the faucet and wait for the water to get cold. Rinse your face with several good splashes of cold water. The coolness of the water will constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling in under ten seconds. Plus, you'll be very awake by now!

Salt. Yes salt. Pepperoni pizza, chips and other salty foods often cause puffy eyes. However, salt by itself is wonderful for reducing them!

Directions: Put 1/2 teaspoon salt into 1 quart of warm water. Dip cotton balls or facial pads into the solution, then lie down and apply the pads to your eyelids. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. When finished, you'll be amazed at your younger looking de-puffed eyes.
