what is a good way to relieve puffiness and dark circles around the eyes?

My husband is taking me out for the first time in soo long and i have been under so much stress i have lost alot of sleep. can anyone tell me if the tea bag thing works. we are spending the day together so i don't really have much time for anything that takes a while to work. i know i won't get a miracle but any help is better than this! thanks

  • My doctor says that dark circles under the eyes are not from tiredness, but from allergies. Try using a nasal spray. :)

  • Take some spoons and ut them in the freezer until they are very cold. Them place them over your eyes for a couple minutes. This will help the swelling. Then when you are fixing your make-up use white or silver eyeshadow and put it in the inside corners of your eyes and blend. This will perk you right up! Promise!!! Have a great day with your husband!

  • Cucumbers are wonderful. One very thin slice placed on each eye while you rest for 10 minutes. Be your husbands girlfriend all day and have fun.

  • I always had dark circles and puffiness, no matter what I did or how well rested I was. I thought it made me look old... I hated it! I went to a facial plastic surgeon, and he injected some fillers. About 20 minutes later, I looked like myself again! I know, it sounds extreme, but it wasn't. It wasn't that expensive or painful, and he did it in minutes right after my consultation. I was good to go immedieately! Just be sure you know who you're going to! Not every doctor is the same! Ask friends for recommendations, or PM me if you want a few tips.
