The Australian soccer team, the Socceroos, played last night in the World Cup, and while it was a good match, it didn’t finish until after 1am Australian time. And because tuesdays are usually horribly busy, I had to wake up and be at work by 8am (after watching more soccer at about 6am). It was very un-girlie of me to stay up and watch the match, but for some reason I like sport. Even before it got cool over the last few years.
So as you could imagine how much I did not want to go to work this morning with the prospect of everyone asking me why I looked so tired (after all working around a bunch of girls who arenâ€™t so into sport â€“ except for one â€“ they wouldnâ€™t understand). Being tired is one thing, looking it is another.
Thank goodness for natural (aka cheap) alternatives for a little de-puffing this morning. Hereâ€™s some I love using when the going gets tough but the tough has to keep going:
- Water (to be drunk â€“ after a big night out of course!)
- Cold tea bags â€“ the diuretic properties help reduce blood flow to the area. And itâ€™s refreshing!
- Cucumber slices â€“ ditto what I said above! Just donâ€™t eat them afterwards. Ick.
Do you have fav way to de-puff your eyes? Share it!
