HiRes-6Puffy eyes are often caused by swelling in the tissues surrounding the eyes, which is a common problem for many people. The good news is, many natural home remedies will help you to eliminate them easily.




1. Massage 

Massage is one way to help remove the fluid around your eyes. Make sure to clean your face thoroughly and then using your fingertips, gently massage the cream or oil gently around your eyes. Almond oil is a great choice, because it is light, not greasy, very affordable and works well. Do this in the morning and before you go to bed each night.

2. Cucumber Slices

Cucumbers can help to remove puffiness due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It's a refreshing, pleasant way to soothe your eyes gently. Slice a cool cucumber and then put two slices on each of your eyes for about 20 minutes. You can even take a short nap while you are doing this. Cucumbers contain vast amounts of water that acts as a natural moisturizer.

3. Cold Spoons

For people on the go, a quick fix for puffy eyes is a chilled spoon. Place two metal spoons in the freezer for a few minutes, or even better, in a glass of icy water. Put these cold spoons on both of the eyes until the spoons start to become room temperature. Also, make sure that they are not too cold, because no one really enjoys frozen eyeballs.

Along with these tricks, the most important part of any skin care regime is to drink plenty of fluids, rest often and take care of yourself. Healthy skin comes from within!
