Lack of sleep, excess salt intake, allergies—it seems like just about anything can instigate puffy eyes. Thankfully, you won’t have to hide behind sunglasses after trying these remedies.
Not to brag, but all of our eye gels are formulated to knock out puffy eyes with a one-two botanical punch. Take our moodpatch™ Perk Up Eye Gels, for instance. Loaded with energy-boosting and de-puffing Green Tea Extract, they’ll have you looking like you got twelve hours of sleep in just 10 minutes.
Nervous to put your gardening skills to work? No worries. Store-bought aloe vera gel will do the job. To prep, simply place the aloe in the refrigerator, and let it chill overnight. Post-morning cleanse, apply a light layer under your eyes, and let the plant’s powerful antioxidant properties help reduce any inflammation.
Clocking in at a mere 30 seconds, this method is the quickest of them all. Simply pair your index and middle fingers together and tap them lightly against your face, moving from the inner to outer corners of your eyes. Repeated three times, this movement is an easy way to encourage lymphatic drainage—just be sure not to tug or drag the skin along the way.
Ray-Bans, be gone!
