Get The Most From Your Makeup: Puffy Eyes

Have you ever woken up and your eyes are practically swollen shut? They are puffy and tender and you're not sure why. Could it be an allergic reaction to something—or perhaps it was just that big bag of salty popcorn you downed on your movie date last night? Here's a quick fix for you:

Take out your tube of Preparation H Hemorrhoid Ointment and dot a little bit around your orbital eye area. Pat gently using your ring finger, and in no time at all the puffiness will dissipate and you can wave your baggy eyes goodbye! This is an age-old remedy that models have been using for years. In fact, in Diane Iron's book, The World’s Best Kept Beauty Secrets, she claims that supermodels swear by hemorrhoid cream to maintain taught and youthful-looking eyes.

The active ingredient in Preparation H is phenylephrine, which is believed to tighten skin by temporarily constricting blood vessels and shrinking its tissue. Please note: This is not recommended for those of you with sensitive skin, as it can irritate the gentle and thin area around your eyes.
