Also, be sure to change your pillow cases frequently because (sorry to say) tiny mite bites are at the root of a lot of puffy eyes.


I found that using a slightly higher pillow at night helps, especially if your puffy eyes are connected to a sinus problem. Using "Ocean" saline drops (available at pharmacies) to, ehr, clean your sinuses also helps to decrease associated eye puffyness.

i have a problem with those and i've found that the only thing that really, really helps is clinques airbrush concealer.. cover it up!!!!!!

i've tried the creams, cucumber, ice, tea-bags and so on. get a good concealer, that's my advice.

btw, the tea-bags.. make sure you wash your face after. I had a friend who didn't and it smelled

Under Eye Care
I have heard from several places that Preperation H works wonders on under eye bags by drawing out somehow the liquid in the bags. Have any of you tried this? I'd like to know if it really works before I have to embarass myself buying this stuff. Thanks!

I'm not sure about Preparation H, I've never actually heard of it. However, have you tried Benefit Ooh La Lift, Benefit Boi-ing Concealer or YSL Touche Eclat? They might help your under-eye bags problem.

Yes, I've heard that Preparation H is used by some makeup artists to work with undereye sagging. I've never used it myself so I have no personal experience to share. Sorry.

Did the cream irritate your skin at all or your eyes?

I've used PrepH as a hang-over remedy for puffy-eyes (me w/ hangover)

I don't know if it really works or not though.

But I would be extra careful not to get any in the eye- just put a tiny bit on your middle-fingertips, rub them together pat the area gently

Cowboyboots is right. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep.

Also try a good diet, and lots (I mean lots) of water.

Bags can often be caused by allergies and a nutrient-deficient diet.
Lack of sleep can also be a cause but if you want a quick fix:
Laprairie under-eye gel, costs a fortune but DAMN its good. Plus a yellowish under-eye concealer.
