Tatum’s Tuesday Tips: to reduce puffiness use chilled tea bags, or a chilled coffee soaked cloth, or chilled spoons. All from the refrigerator or freezer. I make my brewed coffee with cheese cloth. I literally take coffee grinds out of the coffee maker, cool to room temperature and refrigerate. A saturated cloth with just coffee will do too. I do the same with the teabags. Dry cold spoons very effective.. The cold metal works wonders and the immediate sensation stark and yet soothing. I have tried these fun, wacky home remedies for years.
