The tell-tale signs of your all-nighter display boldly as miniature suitcases under your eyes. Water retention causes the sprouting of these pee-wee bags, leaving your peepers looking pooped. Excess alcohol, not enough sleep and too much partying also contribute to the tiny blimps. Going organic has you searching for natural remedies to these beauty calamities, leaving store-bought solutions in the dust. Arm yourself with all-natural tools to deflate the balloons below your eyes, and you'll look as well-slept as a newborn baby.
Cut four thick slices of a potato with a knife. Wet your eyes with cold water. Lie down on the couch and place one slice over each eyelid; place one slice over the under-eye area. Leave the potato slices on and under your eyes for 10 minutes. You can also use cucumber slices in place of the potato.
Keep two spoons in the freezer. Remove from the freezer when cold and place one over each eye, as you lie flat for 10 minutes.
Fill a bowl with a small amount of cold milk. Dunk two cotton balls into the milk and squeeze out the excess liquid. Lie on the couch and place each cotton ball over your eyes. Remove the cotton balls and rinse your face after 10 minutes.
Reduce salt intake. Not only does it make you retain water, feel bloated and overall cranky, it also leaves those tiny bulges under your eyes.
Get at least eight hours of shut-eye each night to ward off puffy eyes.
