Pillows – they’re great for the couch, under your head while you sleep, but under your eyes in the morning? Not such a good place to have these puffy pockets. If you wake up to puffy eyes, there are a few things you can do to reduce these pockets of fluid.
That’s right – as fluffy as they seem, puffiness around your eyes is actually caused by fluid that pools here while you sleep. You can prevent the pooling by adding another pillow under your head so your face stays elevated while you sleep.
Once you get up in the morning, treat the puff first thing. Use a product like Instant Lift Pads to get fast results so you can start getting ready. These particular pads have ingredients that firm up the skin while acting as a type of cold compress to help the puffiness go down.
Once you have done this, you can apply your makeup in a certain way to reduce puffiness even further. When applying concealer around your eyes, dab the dots to blend instead of rubbing. Not only will this create a better look, it will encourage draining of that puffy fluid!
