I don’t really see anything but you should try tea bags.  The caffeine should reduce the puffiness.  Puffiness is usually caused by water under the skin so you need something to get the extra water out.

Hmm…  if you mean dark circles or drooping a lot of it can be hereditary!

Try drinking some distilled water with some lemon to flush out the salts in your body, to hopefully reduce the swelling!  

@MissAsB had great advice with the teabags too ! Also try cucumbers on your eyes 🙂

Hemroid cream. Saw it on Miss Congeniality. It works.

Here are a few ways:

  • BLACK TEA BAGS

    After you wash your face in the morning, you will want to place black tea bags on your eyes. You will need one for each eye. The caffeine in the black tea will shrink the capillaries under the eyes and reduce the darkness. If you do not know how to get rid of dark circles, then this is the first step to try. Let them sit on your eyes for about 10 minutes.

    ICE PACKS ARE YOUR FRIENDS

    After you are finished with the tea bags, place an ice pack on your eyes. Try to find small ones, one for each eye. If not, one large one can be stretched across your eyes. Focus on icing the area under the eye. This will further shrink the capillaries and reduce puffiness. Sometimes dark under eye circles can be a result of puffy eyes or eye bags. The ice packs will reduce any puffiness that way be there form the night. Dark circles and puffiness can sometimes go hand in hand. Many times, people go looking for information on how to get rid of dark circles, when they should really look for how to get rid of bags under eyes. In the case of under eye bags, ice packs are the way to go. Leave them on for 10 minutes, or however long you can take it.

    VITAMIN K CREAM

    After you are finished icing your eyes, massage the eye area with a good quality eye cream containing vitamin K. Vitamin K is the best reducer of dark circles under the eyes. When you massage, focus on the area when the eye meets the nose, and work your way down until the whole area has been massaged. After you are finished, let your eyes rest for 15 minutes before applying make-up. It can be hard to know how to get rid of dark circles under eyes, but following these three easy steps will give your eyes a huge improvement!

    Doesn’t putting a cold spoon on it for awhile help?…or is that a hickey? Undecided

    Kinda late, but here’s a little makeup tip. If they’re still there on the wedding day, dab a bit of sparkly vanilla eyeshadow on the bags, and at the inner corner of your eyes. The sparkle will reflect light, making you look more awake! I do it just about every day!

    The Garnier eye roller is amazing, especially if you keep it in the fridge!

    Buy some highly reviewed eye cream or eye roller and apply it every morning and night. Make sure to read reviews and buy a good one as you might end up wasting money on ones that dont work at all. I tried one from Aveeno but so far its not doing much for me… I might try the tea bag suggestion as it sounds pretty effective.

    Ladies, there’s a hot new product that makes it fast and easy to get rid of your under bags… it’s called Instantly Ageless™. Go to http://www.agelesscanada.com and watch the video. You dab it on and 2 minutes later bags and circles gone… lasts about 8 hours. I love this stuff! And it’s affordable!
