If you’re feeling tired and you’ve stared at a computer screen (or phone screen) for too long or you’re simply fighting off a cold, your eyes might start to look really red and tired. Here’s a simple three-step plan to make them sparkle again:
- A lack of water can make your eyes look really tired, so drink six to eight glasses of water every day to keep the redness away, or a quick tip – use eye drops for redness relief.
- Empty an ice cube tray into a sink of cold water and soak a towel in it. Wring the cold towel out, then lie down and place it over your eyes for five minutes. If the towel gets too warm, soak it in the ice water again and repeat.
- Apply a dot of pale, pearly eyeshadow on the skin at the inner corner of your eye and just above your pupil. This will make your eyes look wider and brighten up your eye area even if you’re still tired, and nothing is working.
