Puffy eyes are often discovered after waking up in the morning. This unsightly problem can be caused by lack of sleep, fluid buildup, stress, allergies or other factors. If you need to get rid of puffy eyes quick, there is no need to run to the department store for expensive creams. You can get rid of most puffy eyes almost instantly using simple treatments you can do at home.
Things You'll Need
Wash your face using cold water. Concentrate on the area around your eyes. The cold will constrict your blood vessels and reduce any swelling.
Dip two spoons in ice water. Allow the spoons to sit in ice water for one minute. Lay down and place one spoon over each eye. This will provide additional constriction to blood vessels and reduce swelling.
Prepare a cup of chamomile tea. Add some ice cubes to completely cool the tea. Soak a washcloth in the cold tea and place the washcloth over your eyes. Give the chamomile-soaked washcloth 10 minutes to reduce puffiness.
Apply eye cream over any remaining puffiness under your eyes. It is helpful to use a cream that contains caffeine.
