Tired of Bags under Your Eyes?

BlogBeauty Tips | November 10, 2015

When it comes to beautiful skin fears, three things top the list – wrinkles, acne, and dark circles under your eyes.  Fortunately, you can take steps to prevent all of these.

What Causes Dark Circles?

Dark circles are simply the appearance of blood vessels under your skin. They can appear red to blue to brown, depending on your skin thickness and color.

Most people believe that dark circles appear when you haven’t gotten enough sleep. And, that’s true. But, it’s not the only reason bags appear under your eyes. It can also be the result of:

• Genetics. Sorry.
• Allergies. These can be seasonal or because you came into contact with an allergin.
• Too much sun. You were warned, weren’t you?
• Thinning skin. It could be aging or the products you use—or don’t use.
• Rubbing your eyes. Sometimes you need a good cry, but your eyes will need time to recover.
• Eczema or pigmentation irregularities. If these are the case, you may need to see a doctor.

What Can You Use to Rid Yourself of Dark Circles?

We’re truly sorry if you’ve been whacked with hereditary bags under your eyes. But, even then, there are ways to mitigate the effects of genetics. In all cases, it’s a matter of reducing the impact of the underlying cause – not covering your bags every day for the rest of your life.

To make an impact:

• Wear sunscreen… all the time and especially on your face.
• Choose a makeup remover that doesn’t leave you clawing at your face.
• Take an antihistamine if your bags are allergy related.
• Get a retinoid cream designed for under-eye use. This will help to thicken your skin while simultaneously lightening it.
• Get plenty of sleep. Your skin loves it when you sleep.

If none of these work to reduce dark circles within a couple of weeks, you may want to see your dermatologist. There are laser treatments and fillers available, although these treatments are often reserved for severe cases.

How Do You Deal with Bags in the Meantime?

Everyone has seen the cucumber treatment on TV, and you’ve probably already given it a go. Cucumber will certainly help to calm and instantly reduce the appearance of bags. In addition, you might also want to try:

• Lemon juice. The Vitamin C works wonders. Use a small cotton ball to apply freshly squeezed juice under your eyes. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with cold water, avoiding splashing the lemon juice into your eyes.
• Raw potato slices. Use these as you would the cucumber; potato has a natural bleaching agent.
• Almond oil. Apply this before bed to the offending area and then rinse with cold water. You can do this nightly.
• Use a creamy solid concealer, but choose your color wisely. For example, look for something with a peachy undertone to minimize bluish bags. Don’t use too much though; a complete lack of shadowing looks unnatural.
