puff the magic eye gel...

It's springtime! Cue the budding trees, t-shirt weather and annoying yellow pollen everywhere. Yup, not only is that pollen turning your car a completely different color than it should be, if you're prone to seasonal allergies, it's making your histamine go bonkers. And if your histamine is out of whack, chances are it's obvious.

Congestion isn't glamorous and wreaks havoc on those under eyes. Even if you're eyes are never puffy, any congestion can create little pockets of puff that is stubborn to get rid of.

I experienced this firsthand when I had a head cold a few weeks ago. Not only did I not feel well, but I looked (and felt) like the picture above.

Sure there's cucumber and tea bags that will help de-puff, but laying horizontal for 20 minutes every morning (and I'm not including when you hit the snooze button a zillion times) won't help you get out of the door any faster. That's why caffeine is your best friend here. Yes, you probably already have a love affair with caffeine, if you're one of the millions of people who drink it like the zombie apocalypse is happening tomorrow. Just like your favorite cup o' Joe will energize you, caffeine under your eyes will perk you up fast. Caffeine helps to flush out the liquid that's pooling up under the eyes so you'll be able to look fab in no time, even if you're still sneezing and coughing from this glorious springtime weather.
