How to Use Cucumbers to Soothe Puffy Eyes

Maybe it’s due to allergies. Maybe you just ugly-cried watching This Is Us. Whatever the reason for your puffy eyes, we’ve got just the solution for soothing them back to normal. All you need is a blender, half a cup of water and two mini cucumbers.

Simply blend the cucumbers and water until smooth, pour into a resealable container and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Once it's cold, dip two cotton rounds into the mixture and let sit over your eyes for eight to ten minutes. That’s just enough time for the cucumbers' ascorbic acid to work its magic by reducing swelling and calming irritated skin.

Now all you need is a personal masseuse and you’ve got yourself a lovely at-home spa day.
