Use tea bags to soothe tired eyes. After making a cup of tea, keep the tea bags in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes or until cold. Squeeze out any excess liquid and then place over your eyes for around 10 minutes, wiping off any stains afterwards. Green tea works particularly well as the caffeine in it helps to counteract the appearance of puffiness.
