4 Tips For Banishing Morning "Puffy Face"

If you've been waking up in the morning with puffy, watery eyes and dark circles due to allergies — or any other reason, for that matter — don't stress. A few simple tweaks to your morning rountine can start your day off right. Esthetician Liv Contreras of San Francisco's Lashfully lash extension salon has easy tips for preventing and treating the dreaded morning puffy eye and face. Of course, see your doctor when needed, but to see Liv's expert skin care advice, just keep reading.

  • Check your bed: Do you have feathery pillows or a down comforter? If so, you might want to consider switching up your bedding, as the feathers could actually be what's making you bleary-eyed in the morning.
  • Don't wash your face in the shower: Sounds strange, right? Instead, Liv recommends that you wash your face with cool water at your bathroom sink to quell the swell.
  • Pack it on: Eye masks and cool packs are great ways to provide some relief, all while reducing the puffiness.
  • For a DIY option: For another way to take down swelling, Liv suggests applying a cut piece of smooth fruit over your eyes, holding the fruit in place with a facial tissue.
