puffy under eye treatmentTired Eyes Be Gone

Starting to notice those terrible under eye bags? Are they growing puffier and darker by the minute? Don’t let expensive under eye creams bleed you dry, try cold tea instead. Green tea has many health benefits, but it also helps reduce the appearance of puffy under eyes. Buy a box of the iced-tea version, and make a batch to keep in the fridge. Soak cotton balls in a bit of the iced tea and place over your eyes. The caffeine in the green tea will help shrink the appearance of blood vessels, and the antioxidants will help eliminate inflammation. You can also freeze the tea bags and use in place of the cotton balls. – NYC dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman, author of the new book, Skin Rules
