Eye bags are visible swellings in the lower eyelid area of the eyes or simply an unsightly sagging of the tissue. Puffy eyes with bags under the eyes always make you look tired and old immediately. Like the even more common problem of dark circles, they are usually caused by too much stress and lack of sleep. Excessive alcohol and cigarette consumption can also be the cause of bags under the eyes. In addition, as we get older, our skin unfortunately does not cope with this unhealthy lifestyle as easily as it did in our roaring twenties. In some cases, bags under the eyes are simply genetic. Here we explain how you can effectively get these annoying beasts under control!
How do bags under the eyes develop?
Even if this is often mistakenly assumed because of the name: Tear sacs have nothing whatsoever to do with tears. Unfortunately, they do not shrink when you empty them by crying. The bags under the eyes are not made up of fluid, but of fat. This always happens when the lymph flow gets out of rhythm. Then the eye area swells up unattractively. With increasing age, this effect becomes more visible because the connective tissue and the muscles unfortunately slacken over time.

Five home remedies for bags under the eyes!
But there are also some Home remedyYou can use them to combat those pesky bags under your eyes. Here are our tips!
- Tea bags and coffee pods: Cooled tea bags with green or black tea, as well as coffee pods can help! Simply place them on the puffy eye area and leave them on for a few minutes.
- Curd mask: A mask made of curd also helps to combat thick bags under the eyes. Take two teaspoons of curd and leave it either on the whole face or just under the eyes for about 20 minutes. Afterwards, simply wipe off the mask with a lukewarm, damp cloth.
- Aloe Vera Juice Mix: Another tip is to mix aloe vera juice, nut oil and wheat germ oil in a bowl. Then soak two cotton pads in it and place them on the closed eyes for at least 15 minutes.
- Massage: A facial massage can also be beneficial and effective! Gently stroke the skin under the eyebrow. Then gently tap the area around the cheekbone.
- Drink a lot: However, the most effective and simplest home remedy is to drink plenty of fluids. So: drink a lot! Preferably 2 to 3 litres a day. Regular, restful sleep also helps!
Simply remove bags under the eyes!
To achieve an absolute instant effect, it is advisable to trick yourself with make-up. This way, you can conceal those pesky bags under your eyes at least a little. Choose a concealer that perfectly matches your skin tone and the colour of your foundation. If it's too light, it will only accentuate the bags under your eyes.
Dark eye shadow and black kohl also tend to accentuate the beauty problem. They make the eye look smaller and the puffiness seems more present. It's better to base the lid with a natural, light eye shadow and apply a little darker eye shadow in the crease. This makes your eyes look bigger. A light kajal on the waterline can also visually enlarge the eye and distract from the unsightly bags!
Myth haemorrhoid ointment
Time and again we hear that many stars supposedly swear by good old haemorrhoid ointment to combat annoying bags under the eyes before an appearance on the red carpet. However, doctors strongly advise against it! The haemorrhoid ointment does indeed reduce the swelling, but it contains extremely unhealthy additives, such as cortisone or even local anaesthetics. Of course, the delicate skin under the eyes is hopelessly overstrained by this and can suffer serious damage in addition to irritation and allergic reactions. So: Hands off!
Last resort for cases of hardship is a lacrimal sac operation!
Those who suffer extremely from bags under the eyes and simply cannot get them under control in the long term can of course still think about the possibility of an operation. A so-called lower eyelid correction is performed under local anaesthesia and takes about one hour. The doctor removes the fat from the tear sac and tightens the skin at the same time. Whether a surgical removal of the bags under the eyes is really necessary should be discussed with a specialist. We recommend that you try the Lavule Eye Ring Cream first! It delivers amazingly good, fast results and solves the problem of annoying bags under the eyes in no time at all. This way you can save yourself a surgical procedure!
Do cucumber slices also help against bags under the eyes?
Yes, just put two cucumber slices on your closed eyes for about 15 minutes. They have a cooling and decongestant effect.
Can bags under the eyes disappear on their own?
Once fat is deposited under the eyes, it usually leads to chronic bags under the eyes, which rarely disappear on their own. However, our Lavule dark circles cream, home remedies, a healthy lifestyle or, in the last resort, an operation, can very well get the problem under control.
Does facial yoga help against bags under the eyes?
Sometimes facial yoga can actually bring about a softening effect. Grasp the top centre of your forehead with one hand and gently pull the skin upwards. Then form an O around your mouth and notice how this tightens the skin of your face. Then look up and blink quickly ten times in a row. It's worth a try!
