Need quick de-puffing?: Tip of the Day 10-28-22

Even when you get enough rest and do all the things right, eyes can still tend to get puffy. When this happens, a few hacks can help keep those bags at bay.

I love the kitchen spoon hack because anyone can do it, and you likely already have a spoon and freezer. Experts say, if using an ice roller or jade roller, don't apply too much pressure or it can trigger more inflammation. Dermatologists say, frequently rubbing the skin in the eye area can result in discoloration and a wrinkled appearance.

You can also try the following tricks to depuff:

•Eye creams and gels with caffeine, green tea, niacinamide, peptides and other antioxidantsare are helpful, especially if they are cooled before applying them.

•When you are dehydrated, your body tries to hold on to all the fluid it can, which could contribute to under-eye puffiness. So, stay hydrated to help feel puffy eyes at bay.

•If you have seasonal or other allergies, it is common to have extra puffiness under your eyes. An over-the-counter antihistamine can help if your puffiness is caused by allergies.

•Green tea bags are often used to depuff eyes. After steeping your tea, let the tea bag cool before resting it in your eyes for 15 minutes.
