Close the eyes and apply one tea bag to each eye. Let sit for 15 minutes. Another option is to cut up a cucumber. Apply two slices over the eyes and set for 15 minutes. This technique also reduces puffiness. Once you've tackled sick and tired eyes, Visine, Clear Eyes and other drops are all effective in clearing things up so you're no longer seeing red. Of course, it's also important to keep lip service in mind. Dry lips and cold sores are often some of the unsightly side effects that accompany an unexpected illness. To prevent an outbreak from occurring, keep the lip area hydrated and conditioned with lip conditioner. There are plenty of inexpensive brands like Blistex available at your local drugstore. If you feel a cold sore coming on, invest in a medicated lip ointment and apply throughout the day. You may also want to consider using antiviral medication if cold sores are an ongoing issue.
