How to Get Rid of Bags Under Your Eyes


Close up portrait of beautiful middle aged woman with short brown hairWe’ve all looked in the mirror after waking up from a deep sleep only to see heavy bags under your eyes. When you’re younger, these bags luckily dissipate on their own, but as you age, that puffiness is there to stay.

Why Do I Have Bags Under my Eyes?

Developing loose, drooping skin beneath the eyes comes down to gravity. As you age, the underlying muscles below the eye weaken, just like they do in many others areas of the face, and being to sag. To accompany this, the skin that covers the muscle loses elasticity due to the reduced amount of collagen production. Together, these two factors create the appearance of bags under the eyes that make you appear tired, sad, or even angry.

What Can I Do to Get Rid of Sagging Eyelids?

Your eyes are typically the first facial feature to show the signs of aging. The skin on both the upper and lower eyelids is among the thinnest anywhere on your body, and when considering the thousands of blinks and eye movements during the day, your eyelids have a tremendous amount of stress put on them. While eye creams and lotions may help to prolong the sagging skin and puffy eyes, there may come a time when surgery is your ideal option. Blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) removes the excess skin and fat deposits that contribute to your aged and tired look. When blepharoplasty is performed on the lower eyelids, an inconspicuous incision is made just below the lash line, and the excess skin and fat deposits are removed leaving you with a smooth and youthful look. When accompanied with proper care, such as sun protection and a healthy diet, results can last for many years.

Look Wide Awake and Confident

When your eyes look good, your entire face will follow. As your eyes express your emotions, turn your constantly tired eyes to awakened, happy, and confident eyes to accurately communicate without having to say a word.
