Beauty Tip: Cucumber slices help reduce puffy eyes
October 3, 2015
There are several ways to reduce puffiness in the eyes, and hydration — or drinking plenty of water is one way, but there are other ways to brighten external eye appearance, according to newhealthguide.org.
"Cucumbers have astringent properties and enzymes that help reduce swelling around the eyes," stated a story on the website. "Cut a cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Place the cucumbers right onto closed eyes and leave on until the cucumber becomes warm or for 10 minutes. Doing this several times a day will reduce puffiness, brighten your complexion and help get rid of wrinkles."
