The DIY: Shamban recommends two DIY eye solutions I've never heard of before: Potato slices and chamomile tea bags. The starch in potatoes acts as an anti-inflammatory, Shamban tells me, while the citric acid and phosphoric acid decreases under-eye puffiness.
The Verdict: I try the potato slices first. After cooling a raw potato in the fridge overnight, I slice two pieces and place them on my eyes for about 10 minutes. When I open my eyes, I can't believe what I see -- my bags are gone. My only complaint: I smell like potatoes all day.
So I move onto chamomile tea bags, which are just as soothing, minus the odor, says Shamban. I boil water and let two bags steep for 10 minutes. After the bags have cooled, I place each one on my eyes for about 10 minutes. The process takes a lot longer than swiping my eye cream, but my eyes definitely look less puffy once the tea bags come off.
