Handy hints... puffy eyes

I just picked up this great tip on Real Simple's blog/online mag, so thought I'd share it...

Suffering from a case of puffy eyes? Or just anticipating that the stress of end-of-summer travel and back-to-school preparations will give you under-eye bags? In either case, here’s a handy tip:

    • Soak some cotton pads in green tea, toss them in a tupperware, and then store them in the fridge.
    • The next time your eyes look puffy, place two chilled pads over your closed lids for 10 minutes.
    • The cold—plus the antioxidants—will help tighten your skin.
    • (Plus, you might catch a few winks—the ultimate remedy for tired eyes.)


I must say that I really like those roller ball eye serums as well, definitely helps and just feels nice on tired puffy eyes. In fact, sometimes I just want to keep rolling it about! I use one from Clinique...All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage


Oh, the other thing is to tilt your bed slightly - put a book under each leg at the head of the bed - that allows the fluid to drain during the night.  Also good for sinus etc.


What do you use? Do you do tea bags? Or buy those eye pads? Or just put up with them?


Eating a healthy and glowing you
When life hands you lemons....
