Nobody likes to wake up looking beat, especially around the eyes. But our existing routine has made some of us indisciplined. We stay up late, work for longer hours, and put a lot of strain on our eyes. As such, for the large part of the week, we wake up and realise that our eyes look incredibly tired — almost sleep-deprived. And regardless of whether you are home, or stepping out for work, it can cause you some discomfort.

Below are some quick and easy ways with which you can get rid of the puffiness and fatigue around the eyes. Read on.

* Wash your eyes with water through the course of the day, especially if your job entails looking at the laptop screen. Doing this can relieve some stress around the eyes. This ensures that you sleep better at night, too, without any kind of burning sensation or itchiness.

* You can also use some rose water to treat your eyes. Rose water is also believed to have some analgesic properties, meaning it can act as a pain reliever. So, on days your eyes feel sore and tired, just apply a few drops and decrease fatigue. It will give you immense relief. Just take a cotton ball and add a few drops. Close your eyes and place it on the eyelids for 15 minutes for the relaxing effect.

* Putting an eye mask on can also you provide you instant relief. Alternatively, you can even use a sheet mask to relieve the puffiness around the eyes. Store a pack in the fridge for better results.
