Do you ever wake up with eyes that look and feel swollen? A quick and easy trick to reducing the puffiness around the eyes and look bright-eyed again within a few minutes is to dip 2 cotton pads into a cup of cold milk, squeeze out the excess milk and place the pads over closed eyes. Leave the pads on for about 5-8 minutes. The coldness will reduce the swelling and the milk’s lactic acid will smooth any fine lines. The fat in the milk will sooth the skin underneath the eye.
