No one wants extra baggage under their eyes. It makes a person seem more aged than they are. But under eye bags are an often normal part of the aging process. We get them for many reasons. Under eye bags can be genetic, but often people end up with them anyway, as they age and the under-eye area loses muscle tone. Read on to learn how you can combat these pesky bags!
Sleep is very important if you want to fight those eye bags! A lack of sleep can lead to under eye bags that are more prominent. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep and let your body recharge itself.
A significant part of aging has to do with lifestyle and diet. Be sure to drink enough water and not too much alcohol. Alcohol can lead to dehydration that will worsen your eye bags because your skin will appear dry, thin, and wrinkly. Consider adding chlorophyll to your diet, as well. “This powerhouse pigment also eliminates toxins in the body, reduces inflammation and puffiness, and stimulates blood circulation and oxygenation,” adds Cecilia Wong, NYC facialist.
There are a lot of eye creams on the market, but do they really get to work? “Many of the eye creams are just hype and simply don’t work,” says Nathan Halsey, a skin expert. If you decide to use eye cream, look for ingredients, like arnica, retinol, caffeine, hyaluronic acid (HA), and vitamins C and E.
Fillers that are made with hyaluronic acid (HA), such as Juvederm and Restylane are really popular and effective. Fillers that are injected in the tear trough area can hide the fat and make you appear more rejuvenated, while fixing loss of volume. Dermal fillers can also boost the collagen formation over time. It’s important to find a highly skilled filler practitioner to do the job, as they need to inject a precise amount in the right area.
