Having puffy eyes is one of the most common problems in women as we age. With ever growing age, tissues and muscles around our eyes loosen strength. Natural fats and fluids get collected below our lower eye lid leaving them to look puffy. Lack of sleep can also be another major cause for puffy eyes. To reduce the puffiness in the eyes, one can try the beauty products in the market that claim to be fast acting or try DIY home made recipes.
Cucumber and beauty treatments have come hand in hand for ages, that too to treat issues pertaining around the eyes. Just place a slice on each of your eyes and rest for about 30 minutes. You will feel relaxed and refreshed. For extra puffy eyes relief, use cool cucumber slices.
