Here are some homemade cures for irritable eyes.


Potato is extremely beneficial for puffy eyes. It has anti-inflammatory properties and helps cure irritation around the eyes. Grate a potato, place the pulp into a poultice. Keep this on your eyelids for about 15 minutes. This must be done almost every day without fail.


Cucumbers are cooling agents and their astringent properties are meant to cure puffy eyes. Place a slice of cucumber on each eye and relax for 5-10 minutes.

Green tea

Green tea is known to be a soothing agent for puffy eyes. It reduces swelling of the eyes. Dip 2 bags of your choice of tea in hot water for 3-5 minutes. Let it cool until the bags get comfortably warm. Close your eyes and place a tea bag over each eye.


The easiest way to get rid of puffy eyes is to drink water. When the body is well hydrated, there is less chance of water retention that can cause under-eye area and other parts of your body to swell. Water also helps flush toxins out of the body.

To stay well hydrated, drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water each day. In addition to it, one must reduce the amount of salt to check water retention in the body. Also, avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages that can be dehydrating.

Egg whites

Egg whites have skin-tightening properties that can help banish under-eye puffiness and prevent wrinkles. Separate the yolks from two eggs and put the whites in a bowl. Add few drops of witch hazel, a natural skin-tightening astringent. Use a brush or soft cloth to apply this mixture under your eyes and allow it to dry. Leave it for about 15 minutes.
