How to Get Rid of Puffy Eyes Fast

What Is the Quickest Way to Get Rid of Puffy Eyes?

Our very own PartySugar recently posed a question in the BellaSugar Q and A group in the BellaSugar Community. Party wants to know, "What is the best and quickest way to get rid of puffy eyes?"

Puffy eyes happen to us all. The good news is that you don't have to resort to Cousin It hairstyles to make it through your day. My favorite way to help depuff eyes pronto is a trick I learned from makeup artist Brett Freedman. As crazy as it sounds, Brett suggests keeping spoons in the freezer to use as mini cold compresses. When used on the eyes, the coolness helps to not only take down the puff, but refresh the senses, as well. A depuffing eye cream, along with some lighter-toned concealer blended into any dark areas, will finish the job.

Do you have some of your own advice to share on how to get rid of puffed-up eyes? Tell us your tips in the comments below, and be sure to hit up the aforementioned BellaSugar Q and A group if you would like to submit some questions of your own. We might feature your question right here on Bella.

I make a cup of green tea using two tea bags, then stick the tea bags in the freezer for a little while. I have read that EGCG helps reduce puffyness, and like the spoons the cold from the tea bags helps too. After they are cold, I put them over my eyes for about 20 minutes and meditate. After that time is up I feel refreshed inside and out!

This is probably completely irrational, but i can't help worrying about the spoon sticking to my skin. I have allergies and my eyes water in the morning before my allergy pill kicks in. I'd be afraid it'd be like a tongue on a flag pole.

I've found that doing 20 or so jumping jacks decreases the puffiness in your whole face, but most noticeably under your eyes.
