Natural Cures for Tired Eyes: How do you take away tiredness under the eyes?

Tired, puffy eyes are a result of lack of sleep. Sleep can be the best remedy and for those who can’t afford the same, try the following:

  • Boil some tea in a little water and let it cool. Dip 2 gauzes/cotton balls in this brew and place them on each eye for 15 minutes. Make sure you keep dipping the cotton pads into the liquid, as soon as gauzes dry up.
  • Apply some olive oil on your eye lashes. Chill tea bags in the freezer for 20 minutes. Rest on a chair and place the bags on your eyes.
  • For tired eyes, wash them with cold water, several times a day. This treatment reduces inflammation, moisturizes the skin /tissues, relaxes the eyes & provides relief from eyestrain & fatigue.
  • Take a bowl of cold milk. Dip cotton balls and place them on your eyes.
  • Lavender oil offers gentle relief for tired and strained eyes. Add a drop of lavender oil to 500 ml of water and shake the solution well. Dip two cotton balls in the liquid, squeeze out the excess water and place one pad over each eye.
  • Cut cucumber/potato slices and place over eyes for 15-20 mins.
  • Hydration plays a vital role. So, drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day.
