There can be many causes for eye bags. One of the key reasons is premature ageing. As you grow older, the ligaments under your eyes that actually hold fatty tissue begin to loosen up, causing the appearance of eye bags. Besides ageing, hereditary factors and lack of sleep, bags are also a result of tugging under the skin while applying makeup or washing your face. If you’ve lost hope on how to correct your under-eye bags, here are some solutions that might work...
Pamper your eyes
When you’re fighting eye bags, one of the first things you must do is adopt a night skincare routine. When you use a product that helps de-puff your eyes, your skin repairs itself as you sleep so you wake up with better skin the next morning. Our suggestion is the Pond’s Age Miracle™ Firm & Lift Eye Contour Lifter that lifts skin around the eyes. All you need to do is roll it gently around the eye area and over time, you can expect to see visibly firm skin in that area. Post this, apply the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Night Repair Crème to your face to help brighten your skin while you get restful sleep.
Watch your sleeping position
While lack of sleep can cause wrinkled skin and puffy eyes, it is necessary to sleep in the right position while doing so. When you sleep on your back, there are chances of fluid build-up around your eyes. So it’s best to sleep on an extra pillow that will prevent this problem from reoccurring.
Reduce intake of salt
Excess sodium can cause fluid retention and eventually, lead to puffiness around the eyes. So we suggest you limit your intake of salt—opt for fresh vegetables and fruits instead.
The spoon method
Might sound bizarre but the spoon method can actually help in reducing eyes bags to a great extent. All you have to do is leave two spoons to chill in the freezer for 10 minutes and then place the spoons below your eyes. The cool temperature of the spoon constricts blood vessels and when you add pressure with the spoon, it moves excess fluid around the eyes.
When your body is dehydrated, it starts accumulating water as a defense mechanism. This can easily cause swelling around the eyes. Precisely why drinking at least 3 litres of water every day is a no brainer if you want to get rid of puffy eyes.
