  • I have been told warm teabags will reduce the puffyness....but im not sure if it would work or not.

  • I use Oil of Olay's eye roller - it reduces puffiness really well. Cool teabags work nicely too.

  • Cucumbers are a well-known remedy for puffy eyes, and this home remedy is still considered one of the most effective ways to make tired eyes appear awake and bright. Cucumbers have a high water content, and an ice-cold cucumber can greatly reduce under eye swelling. Cut cold cucumbers into thick slices. Find a place to relax, put your head back, and unwind with a slice over each eye for about ten minutes, or until the cucumber becomes warm.

  • Two answers are correct, warm teabags and cucumbers, also some people use preparation-H which also reduces swelling.
