To stay well hydrated, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water each day. In addition to this, you must reduce the amount of salt you eat to reduce water retention in the body. Also, avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages that can be dehydrating.
2. Tea Bags
Put 2 used tea bags in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Lie down and put the tea bags over your eyelids. Leave them in place for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat a few times a day.
This remedy will also help get rid of wrinkles and dark circles around your eyes. Cut a cucumber into thick slices. Chill the slices in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Place the cold slices on your eyelids for about 10 minutes or until they become warm. Repeat the process several times a day.
Potatoes are also effective in getting rid of puffy eyes. The starch present in potatoes has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce under-eye bags. Peel, wash and dry a medium-size potato. Grate the potato and put the shavings in a clean cloth and tie it up. Place this cloth over your eyelids for several minutes. Repeat the process several times until the puffiness subsides.
