Oh girl. You’d better fix those eyes! | Source: Shutterstock

We’ve all been there. It’s time to leave for school, but you’re still in bed. All of your energy is still at last night’s party and you look . . . well, you don’t look cute. A quick shower and a ponytail can fix you up a lot, but puffy eyes are a dead giveaway that you’re not all bright and bushy-tailed.

Fixing puffy eyes can be a little tricky--but I do know one trick that works. Preparation H. I know, it’s super weird to use a product meant for your behind on your face, but when applied very carefully with a Q-Tip to the area just under your eye, it can temporarily reduce puffiness and redness. Two for one!

The only catch is that you really, really have to be careful not to get it in your eyes. Some of the ingredients in Preparation H (like ingredients in many products we use all the time, actually) can cause a lot of damage if they get in contact with your eyes. So for heaven’s sake, if you’re trying this one out, girls, be careful.

And maybe order it online, too. Standing in line at the drug store with a tube of Preparation H in your hands can be a little embarrassing. Nobody will believe what you’re really going to use it for!

    I read long ago (couple years) that preparation H doesn’t work anymore to de-puff because they changed the formulation, and the de-puffiing ingredient is long gone. In fact this is weird and I guess dangerous…

    Garnier has a product named Caffeine Eye Roll-on that is specifically made for that porpouse.
