For Puffy Eyes
- Take a metal spoon and
run it under cold water. Place the metal on the puffy area for
at least 60 seconds.
- Apply hemorrhoid cream
(look for brands that contain ingredients of yeast and shark's
liver oil) to the puffy area. Insiders have known for years that
in just the way it gets the swelling out of that other area, it
works the same way for the face.
- Thin cucumber slices used
as compresses over closed eyes will relieve sore, puffy eyes.
- A black tea bag soaked
in cold water on each eye for ten minutes will reduce swelling
caused by fluid retention. Gently press from inner to outer corners
to hasten drainage.
- Avoid salty foods, which
cause the under eye area (and the rest of your body) to hold fluid.
- Elevate your head when
you sleep, to keep fluid from settling around your eyes.
- Combine 1/4 cup boiling
water with one teaspoon of Epsom salt and three drops of iodine.
Let mixture cool until it's comfortable to the touch.
- Saturate a cotton ball with this
mixture and dab on blackheads.
This will allow them to loosen so they can be easily squeezed
with a gauze pad.
