Myth: preparation H can shrink bags under the eyes
Truth: Phenylephrine, which is the active ingredient in hemorrhoid cream will cause the blood vessels to constrict. this can help depuff your swollen eyes but the tubes additional ingredients such as mineral oil can irritate the ultra thin layer around your eyes. instead try a serum or gel with cooling ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile. or place a chilled spoon or cucumber slice under your eyes to shrink excess fluid. you can also try sleeping with an extra pillow to improve circulation.
