I use Preparation H. A tiny bit under eyes. It does work and that is what some beauty contestants do to reduce puff. (11/30/2007)

I have been on a new vitamin regimen and one of the vitamins have made my puffy dark circles under my eyes go away. I am taking E, B-100, magnesium, Flax oil and Fish oil, and Glucosamine/Chondroitin. I wish I could pinpoint which one helped my puffiness, but I started this all at the same time. I suffer from Endometriosis and thought I would try a natural route instead of more medicine. My pain hasn't diminished, but I have noticed a big improvement with my skin. Maybe you could try a multivitamin.

If remedies don't work for you. Take some gold eyeshadow and place it on the corners of your eyes. (01/01/2008)

I use the Rite Aid brand of Prep. H., (much cheaper the the name brand) the clear gel. I apply a thin layer with a q-tip on the top lid and then under my eye. Then a light touch of powder after it dries. Do not use the cream, it doesn't dry. (01/14/2008)

  1. Mix a tsp active yeast with a little yogurt to make a thick paste. Apply it under your eye and lie down for 15 minutes. Helps reduce puff and dark circles, too.

  2. Put 2 teaspoons in the freezer for few hours, then put the teaspoons on your eyes and relax for few minutes.

  3. Moisten two regular tea bags in cold water (avoid Earl Grey. The bergamot could irritate eyes.), then leave in the fridge until chilled. Place over eyes and lie back for about ten minutes.

  4. Slices of cool cucumber and raw potato may also do the job. Thanks to their anti-irritating and anti-inflammatory benefits.

  5. Make sure you're clocking up enough shut-eye. Tiredness is a major cause of puffiness. Also try sleeping on two pillows. When your head is elevated, excess fluids drain away more easily.

  6. Use a concealer in a shade slightly darker than your natural skin tone, which will play down any bagginess. Whatever you do, avoid a light, shimmery concealer which does just the opposite. Similarly, keep glittery or glimmery shadow away from dark patches. You may actually find you're best off limiting eye makeup to concealer and a flick of mascara, and moving the attention to your mouth, with a strong lipstick-lashed lip.

  7. Avoid salt. It retains water and causes the body to generally bloat. Alcohol, too, can contribute to a puff-up. Drink between one to two liters of water per day, to keep fluids flushing through your system. Try starting the day with warm water infused with lemon. A great way to clean out and kick-start your sluggish morning system. A burst of exercise will help to get things going, too. Even if it's just a five-minute frenzy of star-jumps. (03/28/2008)
