It’s typical. You’ve got an all-important meeting, date or special event and you wake up with big dark circles or under eye puffiness. It’s not the look you wanted to go for at all!
So what can you do to get rid of the dreaded circles and puffiness fast?
We’re going to take you through some tried-and-tested quick fixes to restore those eyes fast and help you look as fresh as a daisy…naturally!
Ice, ice baby
A cold compress is one of the most effective ways to reduce under eye puffiness, and you can find everything you need for it at home too!
Grab some ice cubes, wrap them in a clean tea towel and lie down with the compress under your eyes for 5 minutes each side.
The ice will instantly bring down any puffiness and will give you that extra zing to help you start your day as you mean to go on.
Cool as a cucumber
The humble cucumber is another effective way to reduce under eye puffiness. It’s actually a natural astringent, which means that it will tighten up that baggy skin and give you a fresh, wide-awake look.
Cut a slice of cucumber for each eye and apply for 10 minutes in total.
The distinctive yellow powder obtained from turmeric can work wonders for your eyes. Not only is it anti-inflammatory, soothing swelling and puffiness, but it’s also a powerful anti-oxidant. This means it fights the free radicals that can cause ageing and deterioration of the skin, so it’s a natural dark circles treatment too.
Make a paste of turmeric and water and apply it to your under-eye area. Leave on for 10 minutes, then wipe off with a clean, damp cloth. Rinse away any residue and admire your fresh new look.
Don’t bin it – bag it!
You heard it here first, tea bags are an excellent dark circle treatment! So next time you brew yourself a cup of tea, don’t throw away the used bags. Let them dry out completely, then chill them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
After that period, lie down somewhere comfy, place a cool tea bag on each eye and relax for another 30 mins.
Your undereye area will benefit from the anti-oxidants and caffeine found in tea, boosting your circulation and restoring the delicate skin around your eyes.
