One of the easiest puffy eyes remedy to try is an eye massage.
This is the most natural, inexpensive, and simplest way to make eyes look less puffy.
Eye Massage: A natural remedy worth trying.
This doesn't require anything except a few minutes of your time. Gently massaging the eye area helps to encourage lymphatic draining and decongest the area.
A quick mini-eye massage using your fingers.
You can also help reduce bags under the eyes by using a massaging wand.
The wand is easy to use, helps increase skin glow.
And the best part? It's gentle on your hands and fingers. This is important if you have problems with sore joints or arthritis. You can give yourself a great massage - while watching TV.
A massaging wand like the Kansa Wand can not only help reduce eye puffiness but can help de-bloat your entire face and under chin area.
Other benefits of a Kansa Wand massage - in addition to assisting with lymphatic drainage – is that it can also impart a
beautiful rosy glow to your complexion.
Lymphatic Drainage Exercise
Exercise works as a puffy eyes remedy - you ask?
Yes! If you have some time to spare, consider doing a quick workout. Any exercise that involves jumping up and down like:
All of these can help encourage lymphatic drainage thus reducing trapped fluid in your
eyes, face, and whole body and help to detox too. Nice bonus!

We found a ton of home remedies ranging from frozen peas to cold tea bags.
The most common natural remedy for swollen eyes is a cold compress (like a cold washcloth, cold spoons, or an eye mask).
The cold helps constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling.
However, some can be messy. I'll start with the least favorite of mine...………….
Cold tea bags for swollen eyes
While tea bags might work a bit to reduce eye swelling, the tannins in the tea also can dry the delicate under eye skin - sometimes making the look worse. So proceed with caution if you have extra dry under eye skin.
Start with non-flavored caffeinated tea bags. The caffeine helps constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling. If your eyes are red and irritated, then try chamomile which helps calm irritation, redness, and inflammation.
Ok so here's what you need to do: Seep two tea bags in a cup of hot water for five minutes. Then put the tea bags into a container and place in the refrigerator until they're cold.
A frozen bag of peas works well since the peas are little; the bag conforms to the contours of your eyes and face. It's soft and feels comforting when placed over the eyes.
And unlike wet tea bags, there is no mess even when the peas begin to thaw.
If you're out of cucumbers, anything cold can help, but cold teaspoons work well and they fit nicely over the whole eye area. Keep a few old teaspoons in the freezer.
They feel wonderful, are so easy to use and never drip or melt so there is no mess!!
This is a classic puffy eyes remedy and feels wonderful.
Cold sliced cucumbers placed over each eyelid might help reduce the swelling too. Cucumbers contain natural astringent properties.
Place a thin slice over each and sit back and relax for about 10 minutes.
If you have time - replace with two more slices and sit back and relax for 5 more minutes.
Ok, so I've tried about 100 different under eye creams, serums, and lotions over the last 25 years.
Most eye serums to reduce puffiness have a similar function - they "contract" the skin by drying it a bit which causes the skin to "lift" and helps smooth out puffiness and fine lines.
While many of the serums I've tried worked to reduce puffiness - they also dried my skin too much and left a whitish film.
But the one I use now works the best for me. Not a miracle, no over-the-counter product is, but much better than all of the others I've tried.
