woke up with really puffy eyes today. So was doing some research..................... Caring For Your Delicate Eye Area For many people, the eye area is a real problem. This is one of the first areas to show the signs of ageing and is also a problem area for fluid retention. Here are some tips on caring for the delicate eye area: * Certain moisturisers should not be applied to the eye area as they cause it to swell up. * Separate eye creams/gels are a must if you suffer with puffy or ageing eyes. * Hold a metal spoon under cold running water for a few minutes and then gently press it onto the eye area to soothe, cool and reduce swelling. * Thin cucumber slices are an old remedy, but still a good one for reducing puffiness and soothing tired, sore eyes. * Haemorrhoid creams containing sharks liver oil and/or yeast applied to the puffy area, are fantastic for reducing swelling. * Soak used tea bags in cold water for around ten minutes (making sure they are really cool) and place them on the puffy area. Start at the outside of the eye and roll them gently inwards. * Elevate your head when you sleep to encourage fluid to drain away from the eye area. * Place a slice of raw potato underneath your eyes. The potassium in them counteracts dark circles. * Diet, again! Avoid salty foods as these can cause fluid retention.

Hey.. did you know that Preparation H is the # 1 most stolen product at drugstores??? Apparently most people are too embarrassed to buy it! LOL. I've also read that it is mostly used for under eye treatment. I will try to see if I can find my source again. If I can find it, I'll post it. Thanks for the eye tips. I like to keep cucumber/aloe gel in the fridge for a de-puffer.
