    Do not drink too much water before you go to bed, otherwise, it can aggravate the puffy eyes. To reduce puffy eyes, you can apply ice bag over your eyes for three to five minutes to help contract the blood vessels and subside the puffy eyes. Without ice bag at hand, you can wrap the ice with a towel or washcloth and then apply the towel or washcloth over your eyes. You can also wrap the cooling black tea bag with the towel and then put the towel on your eyes for five minutes because the tannic acid in the tea is a good astringent, which has an effect of reducing the puffy. Also, massage your eyes with the diluted saline water helps.

    Well, yes, according to some experts, drinking a lot of water can be good for puffy eyes. Generally speaking, when your body becomes dehydrated, which happens, you can drink a lot of water. In that way, it will store water as a defense mechanism. And also, this built-up water can contribute to baggy or puffy eyes, so drinking the recommended 8-10 glasses of water will reduce water build-up and alleviate baggy eyes.also, you should know that puffy eyes can be caused by lack of sleep. So you need to have a good rest.
