Skin Care Tips to Fix Under Eye Bags in a Blink

There’s nothing worse than waking up with puffy peepers! Whether from a late night without enough shut eye, hormones, changing seasons or too much crying, we have pro-level deflating tips to solve the question of how to look more awake and refreshed.

Here’s how to get rid of the bags under eyes.

When puffy bags under eyes have you down, there are a couple of twists on the age-old cucumber trick that are worth trying. The secret to reducing puffiness is often adding a cooling element. A brewed, caffeinated tea bag that has been cooled works well to relieve swelling. Also, sticking two metal spoons in the freezer for an hour and then placing them cup-side up over your eyes works, too. Allow either the tea bag or spoons to rest on your under eyes for up to 15 minutes.

Eye cream to the rescue.

To prevent future puffiness from occurring, add an anti-aging eye cream into your regimen. The SK-II R.N.A. POWER Eye Cream firms up skin around the eye, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that have already developed. The cream combines the power of Radical New Age Complex with concentrated Pitera™, SK-II’s signature ingredient. The creamy texture of the R.N.A. POWER Eye Cream is easily absorbed by the skin, making it one of the most hydrating eye creams around and great to have in your beauty arsenal for puffy days.

Since the skin under eyes is so delicate, proper application of any eye cream is important. Use a pearl-size amount of product and dot it around both eye zones using ring fingers to minimize pressure. Gently dab evenly in a circular motion to stimulate circulation.

While tips and tricks can help in a pinch, the best way to thwart ongoing eye puffiness is to stick to a beauty routine that includes a daily hydrating eye cream. And, of course, be sure to get your beauty rest, too!
