Get rid of bagsunder your eyes
As we age, the skin around our eyes loses collagen and elasticity. This is particularly visible in the area between the tissues and muscles that support our eyelids - where the skin is very thin and delicate. A pouch of fluid (or orbital fat) can accumulate in the space under your eyes, making them swell. This puffiness tends to be more pronounced in the morning, as the pouches have had all night to settle and expand.
Bags under your eyes shouldn't be confused with dark circles. These are blue-like rings caused by tiny blood vessels bursting. Dark circles under eyes are often accompanied by eye bags.
Besides the effects of ageing, the following may cause bags under your eyes:
- Poor nutrition
- Lack of sleep
- Allergies - pollen, makeup, contact lens solutions
- Tight-fitting glasses that pull against the skin under your eyes
