If you've got an interview or presentation to give, it can be daunting to stare into the mirror and notice that your eyes are puffy or accompanied by dark circles. A popular, if scientifically unproven, home remedy for the condition is to apply hemorrhoid cream to the area around your peepers.
While noting there's no evidence that the treatment works for everyone, as well as the fact that hemorrhoid cream is not meant for the face, a 2010 Livestrong post walks you through the process of using the cream to make yourself look perkier.
You start by washing your face, then blot it dry and apply the cream to the area. The idea is that the cream will shrink the swollen tissue causing the eye issues. A doctor quoted in the piece recommends trying it only once or twice a week.
