Quick Fixes for Puffy Eyes

You can also take several chamomile tea bags, moisten them in cold water and refrigerate them. If you wake up with swollen or puffy eyes, just apply a chilled bag to your eyes.
  • A slice of cucumber on each eye is really refreshing.
  • Slices of potato work well on puffy eyes
  • Cotton pads or puffs soaked in milk will deflate puffy areas.
  • Cotton pads or puffs soaked in witch hazel and left on eyes for 10 minutes relieves puffiness, tears, eye fatigue, and eyestrain.
