How to Get Rid of Bags Under Your Eyes

It doesn’t matter how much sleep you get, bags can appear under your eyes at any time. People often assume it’s a sign of not being well-rested, but bags under the eyes can also be a hereditary thing, due to allergies, thin or light skin, and other reasons. So what do you do if you’ve gotten adequate sleep and they are still there? Here are some tricks to use.

Cut Back on Your Salt Intake

Did you know that if you are eating too much salt in your diet it can result in fluid retention? Fluid retention of course makes you appear bloated, and puffy under the eyes. You can try cutting back on your salt intake and see if that makes a difference.

Don't Ignore Your Allergies

If you have allergies you'll want to make them an issue and find ways to either reduce the allergens you are exposed to or find remedies such as allergy medicine. If you don't want to treat your allergies with over the counter medicine, you can try essential oils as there are a number that can have a big impact on your allergies.

Eliminate Your Vices

If you are a smoker and/or a drinker, both of these can lead to unsightly bags under your eyes. Until you cut back or stop them all together, you'll continue to have these bags. Alcohol dehydrates your body, and in your eye area that means your eyes will look dark and sunken. Meanwhile smoking weakens the skin in your body, including the delicate skin around your eyes.

Up Your Water Intake

There are so many ways in which water can help our body, and that includes being able to reduce the bags under your eyes. Make sure you are getting enough water each day, as it will help create that “glowing” more supple skin.

Refresh Your Look

By getting rid of the bags from under your eyes you will look more rested, refreshed, and younger. Don’t be afraid to play around with these different tips as you work to find the method that offers you the best results.
