Before I go to bed I use Vaseline to remove makeup under my eyes using a cotton wool, this lease my eyes feeling soft and moisturized. Applying Vaseline under your eyes before sleeping also known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as it locks in the much needed moisture.

I had no idea about this until last year place your spoons in the freezer for about fifteen minutes and then place them on your puffy eyes until the spoon is warm. I find this method effective and helps with my dark circles under my eyes.

I have dry skin and I grew up using glycerine, apply it on your face at night can make a huge difference in the morning. I have used it as my night cream/lotion, but I have learned that glycerine thickens the under eyes, skin and restores elasticity also makes the wrinkles less visible.

The bottom line is hydration is equal to, less dark circles and puffy eyes and not all of us can afford those expensive high end night creams and eye cream so when money is tight I use the 4 above methods to continue looking well rested and youthful.

What do you use to treat those unwanted puffy eyes?

  1. Hi Moipone, I do have dark circles under my eyes, which is partly a family thing, but they aren’t too bad if I drink a decent amount of water and get enough sleep.

    My son gets very puffy eyes in the spring and I do put teabags in the freezer to pop on his eyes and they work wonders at helping to reduce the puffiness.

    Thank you for sharing your tips.
