De-puffing the eyes

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 aren’t so into sport – except for one – they wouldn’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. Here’s some I love using when the going gets tough but the tough has to keep going:

  1. Water (to be drunk – after a big night out of course!)
  2. Cold tea bags – the diuretic properties help reduce blood flow to the area. And it’s refreshing!
  3. Cucumber slices – ditto what I said above! Just don’t eat them afterwards. Ick.

Do you have fav way to de-puff your eyes? Share it!

    Try putting cold teaspoons over your eyes, the curve in the spoon fits teh mould of eyes and works well… better if you pop them in the frige first..
