Home Remedies for Eye Bags

Are you afraid if you look in the mirror and see your swollen bags? Are you sick of people who remind you of these ugly eye bags and how tired you look? If your answer is “yes” then here are some wonderful home remedies!


1. Sleep tight and sleep right

Sleep deprivation will lead to eye bags. So, you should enjoy seven to eight hours of good sleep. Besides, you should be careful with your sleeping position and not sleep on your stomach. Sleeping on one side can also make your eyes swollen in the morning. Always remember to keep your head raised when you sleep, so the fluid will not build up due to gravity pulling under your eyes.


2. Drink a lot of water

If your body retains water, it will relieve the bags under the eyes. You need to moisturize your body every day by drinking plenty of water.


3. Use saltwater treatment

A warm compress of salt can help to relieve the ugly eye bags.

How to apply:

Prepare a bowl and add some warm water.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt in the prepared warm water and stir well.

Prepare 2 cotton balls and soak these balls in your warm saltwater.

Keep your eyes closed and put the cotton balls over your eyes.

Let the balls stay there until they get cool.

Soak the cotton balls back in warm water and put them on your eyes again.

Repeat the process for at least 25 to 30 minutes.


4. Massage gently around eyes with hands

This is perhaps one of the simplest home remedies for eye bags. Eye puffiness is triggered by the build-up of excess fluids that are trapped under and around the eyes. Massage the areas around your eyes gently can displace the trapped fluids.

How to apply:

Keep your eyes closed and lightly press the ring finger under each of the eyes.

Massage with your ring finger for 10 minutes.

Remember to do it gently.


5. Put potatoes on your eyes

Potato contains anti-inflammatory starch that can reduce your eye bags.

How to apply:

Peel and finely grate 2 potatoes.

Take 2 clean towels and put the potato on them.

Keep your eyes closed and put the potato compress on your eye area.

Leave them for about 15 minutes.

Rinse your eye area with cold water.
