Soothe the eyes

If you need to soothe your eyes or treat puffy eyes then we have put together a number of different treatments to try. All are cheap and easy to do so why not give them a try and see how your eyes feel afterwards.

1.  Splash your whole face with cold water, the coldest you can stand is best. Try to do this first thing in the morning when the eyes are fairly relaxed from sleeping. Use either cold water or a mixture of water and ice cubes. Aim to spend around 5 minutes, if possible doing this to allow the temperature of the water to be felt in the muscles.
2.  Soak two tea bags in water, then wring out the excess water, and place in the refrigerator or freezer to chill. Once chilled, lie down and place the bags on closed eyelids for 5 to 10 minutes.
3.  Cut two slices of a cold cucumber, each around 1 /2 inch thick. Place a slice on each eyelid for 5 minutes.
4.  Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. Lack of fluids can lead to headaches and lead to eye strain. Puffy eyes usually indicate water retention, by drinking plenty of liquids this flushes excess salt from your system and stops the Puffiness showing on the eyes.
5.  By removing contact lenses each night before sleeping you can avoid soreness and puffiness caused by lens irritation and drying from happening during the night.
6.  If problems still persist then consult a Pharmacist or Doctor, as you can buy a number of gels and masks to help soothe the area over the counter.
