Puffy Eye First Aid

We all have our puffy-eye moments. It’s happened to the best of us, burning the midnight oil cramming for our university exams (and if you say it’s never happened to you at least once, shame on you!). It’s happened to use crying our eyes out over a drama-rama movie marathon, a really bad breakup, or even your favorite snack store running out of that Best Snack Ever for you. It’s also happened after an entire evening of partying hard, either for New Year’s, Major Fridays, or any club night you got serious about. Puffy eyes do happen to the best of us.

So, what to do about them? Some super-model managers have been notorious for thrusting their charge’s faces into ice-cold water for five seconds to reduce the swelling, but we’re not going to go as extreme as that. One solution you can do is to take an ice cube and rub it on the puffiness. If you have time and access to a cucumber, the time-tested cucumber-slice solution also works. You can also try eye creams to reduce the swelling, just make sure they’re rich in caffeine. A last resort you can try is to go with one of the best-kept drag queen‘s and beauty queen’s secrets – Preparation H.
