Having tired eyes is not great, we all know that. It can be the result of lack of sleep, a poor diet or eye strain from staring into the computer for long hours. Whatever the reason, we don’t enjoy having them and want to get rid of them without a second thought. You don’t need to spend a fortune on pricey remedies, there are things you can do at the comfort of your own house to reduce puffiness under the eye and look less tired.

Elevate your snooze time 

Cut the late-night Netflix binge short and get more Zzz’s every night. The best way to look less tired is to make 7-8 hours of sleep a must every night without a second thought. It enables your body to repair and be ready for the next day as well as increase concentration and productivity. Getting adequate may also help prevent weight gain, heart disease, and increased illness duration.

Tea bags

Tea bags can help narrow blood vessels and reduce blue colouring. Simply steep two tea bags like normal, squeeze excess water, and chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before placing over your eyes for 15 minutes or more.


Cucumbers are high in Vitamin C and folic acid that helps to stimulate cell growth and reduces stress, resulting in less irritation and puff and a reduction in that purple bloom. Just place two thick slices of cucumber from the fridge over your eyes for about 15 minutes.

Rose water

Rose water is rich in flavonoids, and vitamins A and C and is a natural astringent with anti-inflammatory properties. Soak two cotton pads in rose water and place over the eyes for 5-10 minutes.

Cold water

Get into the routine of splashing cold water onto your face. Even if you take a hot bath, finish off with cold water onto your face and eyes reputedly. This technique not only wakes you up but also constricts blood vessels, restricting the flow of fluid to the soft tissues around your eyes and reducing puffiness.

Hydrating eye cream

Hydrating eye creams keep your skin hydrated and brightens under your eyes helping you look more awake. It differs from face creams because they’re specified for the delicate eye area. Apply hydrating eye cream under your eyes before applying makeup and every night before sleeping.
