HOW TO TREAT PUFFY EYES AT HOME
Here’s one of my favourite ways to prevent and treat puffy eyes - by using a gua sha tool. This is a routine you can do when you get up in the morning or before bed! For me, I tend to get puffy eyes (but not dark circles unless I’m really sleep deprived), especially if I eat salty foods but don't drink enough water.I used to do the cold-spoon trick to reduce puffy eyes, but I’ve found something much better - using a gua sha tool! Originating from China, Gua Sha (literally scraping) is a gentle method of facial massage that focuses on lymphatic drainage using a Gua Sha tool. They come in many shapes and in different materials. My one is from Daiso. You don’t need to apply a lot of pressure when using a gua sha tool, but definitely more than when using a jade roller. Here are my tips for using a gua sha tool to treat puffy eyes! ➡️ Chill it in the fridge before using Using a cold gua sha on the skin is super soothing and helps to get any puffiness to go down faster. I have a specific tupperware to put mine in to ensure it doesn’t get any fridge germs on it that will then go onto my face! ➡️ Use it with a facial oil Half of using a gua sha correctly is using it with a facial oil. It helps the tool to glide nicely on your skin and not pull on it. My favourite oil to use with my gua sha is rosehip oil, but you can use anything that you like. ➡️ Always go from the inside out When using your gua sha, go in strokes from inside to outside. This ensures proper lymphatic drainage to de-puff undereyes (and the rest of your face!)
PUFFY EYES USE THIS HACK
So the other day I had a puffy eyelid and I got my tea bag and rested it on my eyes for 5 mins. I did see improvement after 2 days. I say do this twice a day but I love this hack.
Bye bye puffy eyes ✌️
The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I included this serum into my routine a few months back and didn’t repurchase it for a few months and thats when I realized what exactly my skin was missing. This formulation as claimed is rich in antioxidants and also contains anti inflammatories properties which gives a much better result to your under eyes when applies regularly reducing under eye puffy-ness and also brightening dark circles. It doesn’t show immediate result, so you have to be patient with this one but you’ll notice it within 4-6 weeks of use. After not using it for a month or two I included this in my skin care routine again and have already been noticing positive changes. 😍😍 Highly recommend. Don’t hurry for the result, because it might be slower in your case but its effective for sure. Application: Take 1-2 drop and pat it under your eye using you ring finger.

Yes 💕 kicks puffy eyes’ ass!
These have been amazing. One of the only products that my eyes have really liked so far. I did struggle a bit the first time I tried to use these eye patches - they were sliding all over the place! They would make it halfway down my face if I wasn’t constantly adjusting them. I tried just scraping a bit of the serum off them and that did the trick. They still do slide down a wee bit but that’s not a big deal to me because I put them on when I’m doing the rest of my routine so I can easily adjust them. Anyways let me tell you these things WORK. I had an overly emotional day where I cried until my eyes were super swollen and puffy. I put these eye patches on for half the amount of time you’re supposed to and the swelling was completely gone!! I have sensitive eyes and they haven’t bothered me at all either :) I also notice that my under eyes look brighter and more youthful when I’m using these 💕 I definitely recommend trying them out! pixi - DetoxifEYE
Whether you were up until 5am crying 😅 or you just wake up with puffy eyes sometimes, here’s how to help... Grab a rag and wet it with COLD water and hold it to each eye until the swelling has gone down. Look at the difference between the left and right eye. The puffiness isn’t completely gone, but it definitely went down a lot.
Great in the morning to wake you up a bit while getting rid of tired puffy eyes. Very relaxing yet effective! The insulation pads help immensely so your fingers don’t sting. Use it with a serum or moisturizer for an easier glide. *Secret TIP* Use the small ends in your eyelid creases when you have a headache... life changing. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Facial Cooling Globes

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
