Having nasty and dark bags under your eyes is certainly NOT a great way to start the day! They make you look tired, stressed, and just plain sick. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do in order to help reduce this problem.
The Tea Bag Trick Did you wake up bags under your eyes this morning? Have no fear! Simply grab a few tea bags and use them to relieve those dark circles. Rinse them off in cold water and spend a few minutes with them sitting under your eyes. This is a quick fix, so you shouldn’t rely on it for everyday use, but it certainly is a good trick to have on hand!
Be Careful Be gentle to your face! Be sure to wash it daily, moisturize, and wear sunscreen each and every day as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. If you take good care of your skin, it will reward you with less under-eye bags.
Drink Up Experts at Mayo Clinic recommend that every human drinks eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day. This will do more than keep your insides healthy — it also does wonders for your skin! Staying hydrated will prevent under eye bags from forming. Many people find it easier to drink water if they flavor it with tea, fresh fruit, or artificially-flavored syrups. The good folks at Health Ambition give several great tips on how can stay well hydrated in easy (and delicious) ways! Do whatever is necessary to get that water in!
Yes, under eye bags can be a serious pain. But, with a little work and pre-planning, anyone can prevent them! Follow the instructions in this infographic that was created by Campus Eye Group!
