Potatoes contain catecholase which reduces the water retention under the eyes. Potatoes also have anti-inflammatory properties which can have a cooling effect on your eyes.

  • Soak a small cotton swab in this solution and apply it under your eyes.
  • Close your eyes and rest for a couple of minutes.
  • Wash your eyes with cool water and pat them dry.
  • Repeat this process 2-3 times a day.

Alternative Method: You can dip few cotton swabs in cucumber juice, refrigerate them by placing them in a zip lock bag. Once they are cold, you can take 2 swabs each time and place them on eyes for few minutes and pat dry.
