There is nothing like a good cry session. Agree? It is always a great idea to let our emotions flow out with our tears but the only thing we hate about crying is that it leaves us with puffy, swollen eyes.
Imagine watching an OTT emotional Netflix series at night that left you crying and the next morning you have a virtual meeting. What to do with those puffy, swollen eyes?
Well, we have all been there and so has been the puffiness. So, here we thought of sharing some home remedies that can help you get rid of those puffy eyes quickly. Read on.
Cold Water Compress
To reduce puffiness and swelling, apply a cold water compress to your eyes. In a bowl, add some water and ice cubes. Dip a clean face towel into this chilled water and squeeze out. Apply to your eyes. Repeat a few times.
Use An Eye Roller
Eye rollers are extremely beneficial if you have sleepless nights or a lot of cry sessions over the weekend. The rollerball helps to soothe your sensitive eye area and gives relief from swelling and puffiness. Using it regularly can also help you reduce the appearance of dark circles, fine lines among other ageing signs.
Cold Cucumber Slices
Slice cucumber into thin slices and place in the refrigerator. Use these slices on your eyes as a cold compress. Cucumber has antioxidants and flavonoids which help soothe the swelling and puffiness.
Use An Eye Masks
We all have to be extremely careful when it comes to our eyes because the area is quite thin and sensitive as compared to the rest of the face. Invest in eye masks if this puffiness is a constant problem for you. These masks soothe your eyes and treat puffiness.
