Are you annoyed every time you look in the mirror because your bags under the eyes make you look tired, dull and old? It's obvious: puffy bags under the eyes destroy the even overall appearance of your face! And after all, the eyes are the first thing you look at in a person. A puffy bag under the eyes can be very disturbing and ruin the perfect look. But the good news is that there are things you can do about it. We'll tell you how to get rid of this annoying problem once and for all!
What are bags under the eyes anyway?
The unpopular puffy bags under the eyes occur when skin weakened by the ageing process sags and forms a pouch under the eyelids. This causes the fatty tissue under the eyes to slide down and fill this pouch. Excess fluid deposited in the body can also accumulate in it, making the eyelids look even more puffy and droopy. Dark circles and discoloured skin around the eye area add to the problem because they make the bags look even worse.
It's annoying! Unattractive bags under the eyes are one thing above all: a visual problem that is fortunately usually harmless. Nevertheless, they can be very annoying and disturbing. Sometimes, despite everything, bags under the eyes can also be a symptom of a serious illness. If your eye area is chronically swollen, you should definitely see a doctor. By the way, bags under the eyes are usually more noticeable in the morning than in the evening because more fluid accumulates under the sagging skin overnight.
What causes bags under the eyes?
The main cause of bags under the eye is the natural ageing process. As we age, the collagen in our skin, connective tissue and muscles declines. The low concentration of collagen eventually triggers the skin and underlying muscles to gradually lose tone and elasticity. This is particularly noticeable around the eyes because the skin there is extremely thin.
Other factors that lead to the development of bags under the eyes are, for example, water retention or chronic diseases such as thyroid diseases, allergies, infections, or stress and fatigue due to lack of sleep. Alcohol and smoking can also cause bags under the eyes. Genetic predisposition also plays a very important role when it comes to bags under the eyes. If the swelling is painful or reddened and even itchy, a doctor should definitely be consulted because an inflammation could be present.
