Drink More Water

This point looks so simple but very effective because if you take more water puffiness of your eyes can be reduced.

Apply Palming Method

This method but you have to rub your hands against each other until they get warm and then you have to cup your eyes for some time. The advantage of doing this that both your eyes as well as elbows get relaxed simultaneously.
