We asked Monica Belsito, DSC’s skin-care expert, how to keep your eyes from looking like they’ve been bouncing around an overhead compartment for the last 24 hours.
YOU SNOOZE, YOU WIN
Aim for 8 hours of sleep per night. A less-than-rested body has trouble draining excess fluids.
HOLD THE SALT
A diet too high in sodium causes swelling, especially in the undereye area.
COOL YOUR JETS
Place a cold compress, like a chilled spoon, under your eyes to contract your blood vessels and reduce puffiness.
CAFFEINE DOES A BODY GOOD?
Apply a topical caffeine, like a tea bag chilled in ice water, which promotes circulation and de-swelling.
Make coffee ice cubes for the ultimate caffeine-boosted, cooling combo.
