New You Anti-Aging Tip: Treat puffy eyes with relaxation and nutrition. 

Green or Black Tea Bags. Caffeinated teas help constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling, while herbal teas contain anti-irritants that soothe redness and inflammation. Plunge tea bags in hot water for three to five minutes, then let them cool to a comfortable temperature. Lie down, and place tea bags over eyes, then cover with soft cloth for 10 minutes.Under eye puffiness can be any woman’s worst nightmare and can result from allergies, poor dieting, lack of exercise, insufficient water intake, and high salt consumption. Here we list a few recommendations to reduce puffiness.

Cucumbers. This is a well known remedy. Cucumbers’ astringent properties cause blood vessels to constrict, thereby reducing puffiness. Simply lean your head back, close your eyes, and relax for five to 10 minutes.

Cold Water. No time to relax with cucumber slices or tea bags on your eyes? Splash ice cold water on your face to constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling.
