Swelling around the eyes? Have a go at these DIY cures

Cold Compress: Apply a cold compress to the under-eye area to help reduce swelling and constrict blood vessels. You can use chilled cucumber slices, a cold spoon, or a damp washcloth soaked in cold water. 

Tea Bags: Place cooled tea bags (such as green tea or chamomile) over your closed eyes for several minutes. The antioxidants and caffeine in tea can help reduce inflammation and tighten the skin. 

Cucumber Slices: Cucumber slices contain antioxidants and water, which can help hydrate the skin and reduce puffiness. Place thinly sliced, chilled cucumber slices over your closed eyes for 10-15 minutes. 

Potato Slices: Similar to cucumber slices, chilled potato slices can help reduce under-eye swelling due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Place thinly sliced, chilled potato slices over your closed eyes for 10-15 minutes. 

Aloe Vera Gel: Apply a small amount of pure aloe vera gel to the under-eye area and gently massage it in. Aloe vera has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce swelling and hydrate the skin. 

Hydration: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Dehydration can contribute to under-eye swelling, so staying well-hydrated can help alleviate puffiness. 

Elevation: Elevate your head while sleeping by using an extra pillow or two. This can help prevent fluid buildup under the eyes and reduce morning puffiness. 

Limit Salt Intake: Excess sodium intake can lead to water retention and under-eye swelling. Try to limit your consumption of high-sodium foods and opt for fresh, whole foods instead. 

Cold Spoon Massage: Chill metal spoons in the refrigerator for a few minutes, then gently massage them over the under-eye area. The cold temperature can help reduce swelling, while the gentle massage can improve circulation. 

Eye Creams: Use eye creams or serums containing ingredients like caffeine, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, or peptides, which can help reduce under-eye puffiness and promote collagen production.
