De-puff the Magic Dragon

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I don't know if it's due to the weather or my diet, but lately I've been waking up in the mornings with severe puffy eyes. Sick of people asking me what's wrong (they think I've been crying), I've decided to look up remedies to tackle this puffy problem head on.

Acclaimed facialist to the stars Kate Somerville instructs her clients to first steep two green-tea bags in hot water, and then lie back and apply them to the eyes for three to five minutes. Then apply your favorite de-puffing eye cream to the area, massaging it in with a cold spoon prepped in the freezer. "Green tea has caffeine in it that constricts the blood vessels, and the warmth brings circulation to the area. Then the cold spoon literally pushes the fluids out of the area. It's a trick that really works," said Somerville.

Her solution sounds practical and easy. So i'm going to give it a try this weekend and keep you updated on my results via my facebook page

I'd love to hear your fool-proof solutions for de-puffing!
