The No Makeup Fix for Puffy Eyes
What to try: Farris suggests a cool compress with green-tea bags, which have antioxidants that also act as anti-inflammatories. As a bonus, the caffeine constricts blood vessels, counteracting the effect of alcohol. Other good options: Bags of frozen peas (they're better than cucumbers at conforming to the area, says Farris); cotton balls soaked in cool water or skim milk.
What not to try: Farris has heard of patients putting warm tea bags on their eyes, which may feel comforting but actually makes puffiness worse.
