5 food products that will help reduce the bags under your eyes

3. Green or black tea

Both green and black tea have a calming effect on your skin and will also reduce swelling. Let two tea bags soak in a cup of hot water for a minute or so and then put them in the fridge for half an hour. Next, place them on your eyes for 15 minutes. Another option is to make some green tea, pour this into an ice cube tray and then freeze it. When they’re completely frozen, you can wrap an ice cube in a cloth and put this underneath your eyes for a few minutes.

4. Cucumber

The iconic cucumber slices they put on your eyes during a spa treatment are iconic for a reason. Cucumber works very well against bags under your eyes. This has to do with the antioxidants it contains. These have a calming effect and reduce swelling. Place two chilled slices of cucumber on your eyes for about five minutes and the circles under your eyes will disappear before you know it.

5. Raw potato

Don’t have any cucumber in your fridge? Check the pantry for a good old potato. These work very well as an alternative to cucumber. Peel a potato, cut it into slices and then put a slice under each eye. The slices of potato also help to remove any excess moisture from underneath your eyes.
