My wedding is next weekend, and I’ve got to get my terrible case of “under-eye sleepiness” under control, Yikes! I am 23 years old and get plenty of sleep every night, and yet I still feel like i’ve got giant bags under my eyeballs. It’s not as much of a “bag” as it is puffiness or almost swelling.
Obviously, this won’t do. I’ve tried under-eye creams that are supposed to help, but it only seems to worsen the problem. I’ve heard that tea bags can help, but I’m nervous to try it.
Do you girls have any tricks to get rid of puffy eyes?

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.

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

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.

Thanks guys for the tips! I’ve used peppermint tea bags before (because that’s all that I had, I do NOT recommend it!) and had no idea that caffeine was the part that was good for the eyes! I snagged some black tea bags from work to try tonight–thankfully some of the swelling has gone down with cortizone cream… Turns out I was having an allergic reaction to a face cream! haha
