Perk Up Your Peepers Give your I've-been-up-coughing-all-night-and-it-shows eyes the wake-up call they need. Place a cold water-soaked washcloth over your eyes for at least a minute to reduce bags and refresh the area. Then use Kiehl's Eye Alert, $22, says Jennifer Campain, professional makeup artist and beauty expert from Lehigh Valley, Pa. This product contains caffeine, which constricts blood vessels and temporarily reduces any puffiness for a more awake look.
To help your efforts while you sleep, Baldwin recommends making sure that you snooze with your head propped up. "When you lay flat, fluid collects under your eyes, which increases bags and puffiness," she says. This may also help with congestion and allow you to breathe easier.
