Juggling work and other tasks and getting a full 8 hours of sleep sometimes seems impossible. To help you overcome this daily struggle, we’ve compiled a list of 7 easy remedies to help you get rid of your eye-bags instantly.
Don’t underestimate the value of a cold spoon. A cold spoon will help relax the blood vessels around the eyes thus reducing puffiness. All you have to do is put 2 spoons in the fridge for around half an hour, and then place their backs on the affected area for about 10 minutes.
Did you know the humble potato which is made of starch contains anti-inflammatory properties? In addition, it contains enzymes that help alleviate water retention, thus helping reduce puffiness underneath the eyes. Refrigerate the potato, slice it and place it around the eyes for around 20 minutes to see a significant decrease in the size of your bags.
Apart from containing enzymes that reduce the fluid around your eyes and tighten the skin, cucumbers are also filled with antioxidants that help lighten dark circles. Refrigerate the cucumber slices for around 15 minutes and place them around the eyes for 10-15 minutes to solve your eye-bag problems.
Full of collagen and protein, egg whites boost the elasticity of the skin, making it more taut and firm. Whip the egg white in a bowl until it is stiff and then apply underneath the eyes. After it is dry (approximately 15 minutes later), wash it off to reveal smooth skin.
Green tea bags
Green tea comprises antioxidants that tighten the blood vessels around the eyes. Additionally, it’s known to have anti-inflammatory and firming properties. By cooling the tea bags in the fridge for 20 minutes and then placing them over the eyes for approximately 15-20 minutes, you can instantly relieve your eye bags.
Use a good under eye-care cream
It is important to use a good under-eye care cream to keep the bags at bay. We recommend the Ponds Firm and Lift Eye Contour Lifter, specifically designed to firm and lift the skin under the eyes.
