    Yes. Cucumbers are good to treat puffy eyes. As we all know, cucumbers can be used to keep the skin smooth because they contain a lot of water. Besides, they also contain caffeic acid and vitamin C which can soothe irritated skin and reduce swelling. If you get puffy eyes, you can put the cold cucumber slices on your eyes for several minutes every day. Then your puffy eyes will go away day by day. However, if you are sensitive to cucumbers, you'd better not use cucumbers for your puffy eyes. The best way is to talk to your doctor.
