Need a quick remedy to reduce under-eye puffiness? Look no further than your own kitchen. Lying down for 15 minutes with a slice of chilled cucumber over each eye can reduce swelling in no time. The cold helps constrict blood vessels that cause thin skin around the eyes to plump. Fresh out of cucumber? Cooled tea bags have the same effect with the added benefit of tannin, an astringent that helps make skin more taut.

There are a few things you can do to stop under-eye puffiness before it starts: Cut back on alcohol and salt so you don't retain excess water. Double up on pillows to keep your head elevated and prevent fluid from collecting under your eyes. And increase your workouts to boost circulation and help eliminate excess fluids.
