Bhavesh, Research studies show there are health benefits to drinking coffee, the trick (as with anything) is to do so in moderation. I think its no more than two to three cups a day. Have to look at the research to be sure.

And I thought I was it was because I was getting old(er). Great tips, I will have to try them. (May be I need to start drinking coffee again!)

Linda, It works like a charm. I woke up with puffy eyes this morning. My neighbor came knocking at my door before I had got up, I ran to the door, her daughter had a tooth ache. I helped her with that and later caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I had puffy eyes. Made me wonder what I had done as the night before was uneventful. Regardless the nice cool tea bags did the trick and I had a nice cup of tea as well.

Great article! I don't suffer from puffy eyes. Maybe it's the caffeine I drink in various forms all day long.
