Natural remedies can lessen redness or puffiness almost as quickly as it appears. Many remedies use simple ingredients that are already in your kitchen, with the help of Dr. Jeanette Jacknin, a holistic dermatologist and author of “Smart Medicine for Your Skin,” we’ve assembled five of the most effective solutions.
Chamomile, Green, or Black Tea Bags
Chamomile tea, a natural anti-inflammatory, helps ease redness and puffiness around the eyes. Green and black teas contain compounds called tannins, plus caffeine. Tannins have an astringent effect on the skin and shrink swollen tissue, while caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce swelling.
How to Use
Steep two chamomile, green, or black tea bags in just-boiled water for three minutes. Remove them from the water and place in the refrigerator until cooled. Place one bag over each eye and relax for 15 minutes.
