We’ve talked about homemade beauty products before like our olive oil hair treatment and DIY sea salt spray, but what surprising home remedy will temporarily take care of puffy eyes? I’ll give you one guess… you’d never think to put it on your face!
The answer is good old-fashioned Preparation H Cream.
The ointment, not the suppositories, y’all. Please don’t email me with a lawsuit blaming me for your expensive surgery to clean out your sinuses of Prep H suppositories.
Okay, so this cream is known for its soothing shrinkage abilities when you’ve got an itch where the sun don’t shine… but it also works wonders on the face for tightening fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and jowls. The results are temporary, so I prefer to use this trick for the mornings where I really need it, or for big events where you know you’ll end up in a few permanent photos!
Another great temporary fix– Visine allergy formula on a red zit. Visine works by shrinking the blood vessels in your eyes to make them less red. Visine on a red bump will take away **some** of the redness temporarily. Again, this is great for those especially inconvenient zits that occur before meetings, proms or weddings.
I know these sound so silly, but its great to find double household items. Do you have the… erm… itch… to try some Preparation H on your under eyes?
