So, the simplest of all the remedies is the cold water, which is already well-known to have the mentioned effect on the blood vessels. But, it is necessary to attack the problem from the inside, too, in order to achieve the best effect there is. And that is usually done by the increased intake of water, which is also beneficial for any health problem, in general.
Nevertheless, if the consumption of water is combined with the intake of the caffeine, such is the case of drinking the teas (the green and black teas are more healthy than coffee), the effectiveness of such a treatment is improved. Also, the cooled teabags are recommended to be kept over the eyes for five minutes, and the same method should be practiced with the two slices of cucumber. These are the techniques for reducing the swelling and for improving the circulation in the affected areas.
However, in order to minimize the swelling, the two masses of the small pieces of potato could be placed over the eyes, too.

Another way to remove these unattractive bags is to simply keep the cooled teaspoons over the closed eyes, of course, with the prominent part downwards.
