How To Reduce Puffy Eyes

Hi, I'm Vinnetta Scrivo for howdini. I'm going to show you today how to reduce the puffiness underneath your eyes. Whether it's hereditary, or stress, allergies, or lack of sleep, we, unfortunately, do get puffiness underneath the eye. And there are several ways to combat that. The eye area is very thin and delicate, so you have to be very gentle. But, there are a few ways I'm going to show you today of how to reduce the puffiness. So here we have a Leisel, she is our model today. And Leisel's concern is puffiness underneath the eye. So that's what we're going to address. I'm going to show Leisel a few things to do in the morning, quick things, that can help reduce that puffiness. The first thing you should do is to splash a ton of cold water on your face as soon as you get up in the morning. It dilates the vessels of the skin and it immediately shrinks the pores. So it does reduce puffiness right away. Another thing that you can do is take two slices of cucumber. You can put them in a Ziploc bag and freeze them. Take them out, lay down, keep your head propped up on a pillow, and just place the cucumber over your eye for about ten minutes. That will reduce puffiness almost immediately. We'll take that off. Another technique are eye patches. There's a couple different names for them. You can refer to them as eye sheets or treatment masks for the eye. And what they are are infused with retinol, ginseng, other wonderful ingredients that help puffiness and dark circles. And this patch you can place right underneath the eye, as close as you can get it, the smaller part going into the tear duct of the eye, placing that out. And the ingredients on the patch are literally just right on the skin, are sinking right in and helping to depuff and decongest that area. You will leave that on for 15 minutes. OK, it's been 15 minutes, very exciting. We're going to take off the eye patches now. The ginseng is an instant tightening effect to the eye patch to the skin. And the retinol helps to reduce fine lines, which is a vitamin A derivative. And the concentrated ingredients are still on the skin. So we're just going to pat the skin and leave the ingredients on. We're not going to remove that. Now, I'm going to take my eye cream. And I love using an eye cream that has a rosemary or a mint herbal base to it because that reduces puffiness. So we're just going to add a small amount to each eye. And something that you can do if you just have a few extra minutes in the morning is do a mini massage, sweeping inward through the ocular bone. It's very decongesting and it helps to reduce that puffiness as well. So just close your eyes, Leisel. And this is something, of course, you can do on yourself. The skin is very delicate in this area. So use your middle finger which has the least amount of pressure. So you're going to sweep inward around the ocular bone and in, doing this for three to five minutes in the morning. This is great if you have puffiness caused by allergies, by lack of sleep, by just generally feeling puffy under there. This is going to create circulation and movement in that area. I visibly see a difference in this area. It looks more taut and it leaves the skin very dewey and moisturized. If your skin is puffy, hydration is very very important. Drink lots of water, as well, in the morning. So that's it. A few tips to help you reduce the puffiness underneath your eye. I'm Vinnetta Scrivo for howdini.
