How to not have puffy eyes that look like the frog’s

As I mentioned over the weekend, my eyes were hurting and they were actually puffy or maybe I should say swollen. I hadn’t realized until I was at the hair salon as I was facing the mirror for a good hour or so. When I came home, I immediately tried to relieve the puffiness with the simple eye massage by applying self acupressure around my eyes. Actually, I have been kind of lazy and haven’t been doing this for awhile but the technique is really helpful and quite a puffy eye savior.

Use both Western & Eastern techniques
Although I’ve covered the techniques in one of my challenges, but a video will probably give you a better idea. However, as you know, I don’t produce videos but I will sometimes point you to good ones I’ve come across. So this is one of them, which essentially covers both Western and Eastern techniques of eye massages. And in the Eastern method, many of the acu-points I’ve mentioned were covered with good explanations on their benefits such as:

  • improving blood circulation to the eyes.
  • relieving eye fatigue and reducing puffiness and eye bags.
  • clearing nose blockages and sinuses.
  • improving blood circulation and preventing crowfeet.
  • lifting sagging cheeks and jowls, slimming and toning the face.

Technique to prevent droopy eyes
I particularly like that the video touches on how to prevent droopy eyes because this is something you might notice somewhere from your mid 30s onwards. So I’m glad that we have two muscle groups at our eye area that can prevent this. And it seems that strengthening and firming these muscles can actually make your eyes look bigger!

    I’ve watched her videos before and they are really helpful although I do get dizzy sometimes due to the camera movements, lol. Zoom in, zoom out. I think she forgot to mention something–facial massage should always be done on properly moisturized skin or it’ll stretch and make the skin crinkly.

    I only find this video good. Not keen on the facial massage one cos I think the Tanaka massage is better.

    Haha this was an awesome post. I have the addiction to late night chats, and I wake up early morning to go to college early morning. I hope this post helps me in removing my eye circles.

    Thank you.

    It should help. I often apply acupressure on my eyes when they’re puffy and there are some relief.

    I’m a lazy person, how i wish there is a robot who will help us do massage everyday.

    Haha…I know what you mean. You got to be consistent and want to press on. ?

    I almost missed this post! I have to try this as I have hereditary puffy eyes that get much worse in the morning – I sleep on my belly so I think that the lymph in my face gets rather … stagnant during the night!!

    I read that it’s best to sleep on a higher pillow to avoid the fluid accumulation around the eye area. I tried but I just don’t like higher pillows.
