Puffy eyes!! When I get them, it's impossible to get rid of them. Do you guys have any suggestions/tips/tricks to help with puffy eyes or dark circles?
The best I've found is cooling teabags with caffeine and putting them over the eyes for a few minutes..

Here are some DIY at-home remedies that have worked for me in the past:
- Cut a cold cucumber into 1/2-inch thick slices and place over each eyelid for five minutes. You can also try using potatoes or apples, as well.
- Create your own saline solution by mixing one teaspoon of sea salt into one cup of hot water. Soak a cotton ball in the mixture and apply to affected area.
- Rinse two metal spoons under cold water and place them into the freezer for no more than two minutes. Once frozen, take the bottom side of the spoon and place it on top of your eyelid; the swelling should go down by the time the spoon is warm again.
I have always had dark circles around my eyes, even when they aren't puffy. I have been using L'Oreal Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizing Moisturizer for a few months now and it has dramatically reduced the appearance of my dark under eye circles. Also, make sure to use a concealer with yellow undertones for any dark spots. Let me know if any of these suggestions work for you!

Caffeine works wonders, regularly exfoliate your entire face with coffee grains. When you wake up in the morning put cold potato slices on your eyes, they are way better than cucumbers.

I will definitely try the saline salt solution-- it makes a lot of sense. I cannot believe I've never heard about it before. Also, I like the cooling sensation of a cool cucumber/apple/potato. I'll try these!
