  1. Wash your face with cool water

    Wash your face with cool water, then lay a wet hand towel over your eyes. Keep it on for up to 10 minutes. Do not dry the skin around your eyes after removing the towel.

  2. Apply an eye cream

    Dot a nourishing eye cream over your damp skin, and pat it in. Do not pull or rub at the delicate tissue. The best creams for reducing puffiness contain aloe, vitamin E and vitamin K.

  3. Wear an eye mask during sleep

    Wear a cooling eye mask during sleep. The gentle pressure discourages the fluid accumulation, which is a major cause of puffy eyes.

  4. Tighten the skin with egg whites

    On the following morning, remove the sleep mask. Whip one or two egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then daub the foam around your eyes. Wait for the egg whites to dry, then rinse your face with cool water.
