Soak two tea bags in water and place them in the fridge overnight. Right after waking up, place one tea bag on each eye and keep it there for 5-10 minutes. This will help reduce the puffiness and dark circles to a great extent.

Since black tea is the most caffeinated tea type, it is best to use this. Caffeine is well known for its ability to sort out problems related to the eyes. However, other types of tea bags can work too. Tea has natural tannins, which are a mild diuretic.

This method has been used by models since a very long time. Keep doing this everyday, for a fresh and wide awake look! I hope you try out this DIY and keep watching this space for more easy DIYS.
