Swollen Face...


Had a really bad night and as a result my face is uber swollen right now (and of course this has to happen just before the shop crawl!!)

Anyways, anyone have any tricks to make the face go back to human size? My eyes are so swollen that everytime i blink I can feel a lot more skin / eye part than normal. Feels like somethings in my eye but really its just that its so swollen its almost shut.

any help would be very useful!!

Thanks in advance ladies!

Whenever my eyes are swollen and it's got nothing to do with allergies, I put a cold tea bag over my eyes and it calms down very well. I usually run the tea bags under the tap until the colour is gone. If you're worried about staining your skin, I would stick with green tea.

If it's allergy related I don't recommend this as you shouldn't be putting anything close to your eyes.

I really hope this helps!

thanks ren1 !!

I tried teabags (at work) and i don't know if it helped, or if the ice helped, or what ... but the swelling went down a lot. My face was almost totally normal by the time shopcrawl came around :)

thanks guys!!!! :) :) :)
