Here’s How You Can Get Rid Of Those Bags Under Your Eyes

Late nights, long flights or too much partying can leave your eyes looking tired and stressed. Here’s the solution.



It sucks having bags under your eyes. Here’s our go-to solution:

1. Deep Wrinkles And Fine Lines

Sadly unavoidable, wrinkles are just part of life. Your skin has less elasticity the older you get. UV rays and harsh climatic conditions speed up the process of premature ageing. Regular moisturising with an under-eye serum will help delay the early onslaught of wrinkles.

GROOMING TIPS

Bags: Mostly a genetic condition, bags under the eyes can also be caused by fluid retention. To make them disappear, gently massage the bag outwards from the eye or try sleeping with your head slightly elevated. Products: Keep your eye products in the fridge.

Quick fix: There’s method in your girlfriend’s cucumber-on-the-eyes madness after all. Cold compresses, whether teabag or teaspoon, applied to puffy eyes show improvement in minutes simply because colder temperatures reduce swelling.

Dehydration: Overindulging with booze or drinking too little water can also cause puffy and swollen eyes. The only way to remedy this is by conscientiously drinking more water.

NB: If your eyes remain irritated, red, or puffy for more than a few days, be sure to see a doctor or eye specialist.
