There are several inexpensive home remedies for the treatment of puffy eyes:

2 EGG WHITES:Whip up 1 or 2 egg whites until stiff, and apply with a brush or soft cloth underneath your eyes. The skin will feel tighter and look less like puff pastry.


3 POTATO:Potato starch acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to ease irritated eyes. Peel one potato, then wash and dry it. Grate the potato as fine as possible, place the pulp in a clean cloth and fold and then remove them and place them on your eyelids for 15 minutes

4 COLD SPLASH:An easy and cool way to bring back your eyes to their normal appearance is to splash cold water directly on your eye area and the rest of your face. The cold temperature of the water is all you need to jumpstart the fluid circulation in your face.

7 ICE CUBES:Wrap an ice cube in cloth and gently dab the eyes.

SALT:salt-intense foods can cause puffy eyes. However, salt by itself does the eyes good. Get rid of the puffy eyes by mixing 1/2 teaspoon salt into 1 quart warm water. Dip cotton balls into the solution, then lie down and apply pads to the eyelids. Rest in this position for at least ten minutes while keeping the pads in place.Your puffiness is gone

9 EYE MASSAGES:Simply use your middle finger to press the bone of the eye socket gently. Slide your finger in a circular motion from the area just below the brow and move it downwards to the bone of the eye socket in circular motion. It relaxes your eye muscles.

10 Spoons and Water:A glass of ice water and four serving spoons may provide the fastest, easiest and least expensive way to reduce eye puffiness.Chilling four spoons in ice water, and then placing one spoon over each eye. Allow the spoons to remain until they become warm--which usually takes several minutes--and then replace them with the other two spoons that have been chilling in the ice water. Repeat this treatment for about 10 minutes, or until the puffiness subsides.
Upper Eye Puffiness: If the eye puffiness has happened in the upper eyelid area, consider using a dark eye shadow. Opt for two coordinating shades. Brush the dark shadow from the eyebrow down to the crease in the eyelid, followed with the lighter shade branching down from the crease to the eye lashes.
Under Eye Puffiness: Using a usual foundation can help conceal eye puffiness. If the swelling is seriously evident the foundation on the affected area should be a shade darker to the foundation used on the rest of the face. Look after your eyes to keep them healthy. Healthy eyes will help prevent the more grave conditions from happening.
