Baggy or Puffed Eyes? Turn to Your Kitchen..

Pardon my lateness in posting. Google updated Blogger and, well, I finally figured out how to get in... is always fun to learn about natural ways for taking care of health ailments. It saves expenses on prescriptions and/or over-the-counter remedies. Plus, natural remedies in the form of food provide some nutrition.

Have you ever woke up with baggy eyes and needed to go out into public quickly? Try raising your head higher than your body while sleeping to prevent this from happening. Sleeping in this position improves blood circulation. Place a rolled up towel underneath your mattress, directly below where you will be resting your head.

Eat less salt. Salt is a known culprit for retaining water all throughout your body.

Apply cold potato slices over your eyes while lying down. Cold cucumber slices work just as well. 

If you don't have those veggies available, soak a large cotton compress (like the kind you put over a wound) in cold milk. Lie down and place this cold compress over your closed eyes. Keep it on for 10-15 minutes.

So, when you find yourself with puffy or baggy eyes...turn to your kitchen. Not only will your pocketbook thank you, but you won't be supporting those out-of-control pharmaceutical companies. Go natural...
