5 Tips to Reduce Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes

Dec 10, 2017 | Eyes, Skin Care

We’ve all experienced the “raccoon look” in which the dark circles around our eyes reveal just how tired we really are. If you’ve experienced periods of puffy eyes and dark circles around your eyes, don’t let these stop you from looking your best!

Say Goodbye to Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Don’t just drink tea; use it to its full potential—Caffeinated tea is more than just a great way to start your morning. Soak two tea rid-puffy-eyesbags in warm water, then place the bags in the refrigerator for just a few minutes to cool them down, and place each bag on one eye for approximately 5 minutes. Once you remove the tea bags, your eyes should feel refreshed and less puffy!
Get creative with avocado—A slice of ripe avocado can do just the trick to reverse the signs of tiredness. Simply place these slices under each eye to restore the freshness of your face.
Try SkinMedica’s TNS Eye Repair—To reduce the look of dark circles, you may want to try this SkinMedica product! This eye repair product will also help to hydrate the skin around your eyes, which can also help to reduce puffiness.
When in doubt, use cucumber—We’ve all seen cucumbers used on eyes before, so why not try it out? A slice of cold cucumber on each eye can actually brighten your eyes if you leave it on for about 30 minutes.
In addition to all of these tips, make sure to get enough beauty sleep each night so that your eyes can be at their brightest!
