There are a number of affordable ways to treat eye puffiness using items you may have at home. Eye puffiness can be such a drag, especially when you want to look awake and refreshed, as opposed to tired and unrested; so if your puffy eyes have you feeling down, check out some of these easy and pocket friendly ways to treat eye puffiness.
Cucumbers are one of the most frequently used ways to treat eye puffiness. In addition to having a rich source of antioxidants and flavonoids that help with redness, swelling and irritation, cucumbers also have a cooling effect that constricts dilated blood vessels, thereby reducing the appearance of eye puffiness. To treat puffy eyes, place a cool cucumber slice over each eye and rest for 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can blend 2 to 3 cucumbers, strain the pulp to extract the liquid, and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Next, soak a cotton swab in the juice and apply the cucumber extract over each eye. Rinse off with water after 15-20 minutes.
