Under eye bags can be mild swelling or puffiness around the eyes. They’re frequent as you become older and the tissues around your eyes, especially the muscles that support your eyelids, deteriorate. Fat that supports the eyes can then migrate into the lower eyelids, making them puffy. Fluid might also build up beneath your eyes.
Bags beneath the eyes are mainly a cosmetic issue and not an indication of anything serious.
These are some of the common factors of under eye bags & dark circles:
- Fluid retention, especially upon waking or after a salty meal
- Lack of sleep
- Genetics — under-eye bags can run in families
- Medical conditions, such as dermatitis, dermatomyositis, renal disease and thyroid eye disease
As we age our skin needs extra support. One of the products I’ve seen amazing results not only personally but also with a lot of my customers is the Eye Arise eye serum.
It gently exfoliates the skin of the eye area while soothing and softening the skin around the eye. It also has a cooling, firming sensation while promoting moisture retention and protecting the eye area. The most significant impact on collagen and elastin is achieved with safe and active ingredients. It improves skin firmness, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and promotes maintenance of the skin’s lipid layer.
3 Things to start doing to get rid of under eye bags
- Use a cool compress. Wet a clean washcloth with cool water. While sitting up, apply the damp washcloth to the skin under and around your eyes for a few minutes using light pressure.
- Get enough sleep. For most adults, 7 to 9 hours is a good amount of sleep.
- Sleep with your head slightly raised. It may help to add an extra pillow or prop up the head of your mattress. Or elevate the entire head of the bed a few inches. This helps prevent fluid from accumulating around your eyes as you sleep.
3 Things to stop doing to help get rid of under eye bags
- Don’t smoke. Smoking can aggravate the problem of bags under your eyes.
- Cut down on fluids before bedtime and limit salt in your diet. This will reduce the fluid retention that can cause bags under eyes.
- Don’t go to bed without washing and moisturizing your face.
