Let's face it. Even those of us who pride ourselves on not putting tons of weight on our appearance hate getting bags under our eyes. They make us look tired and worn out. And they often come with feeling tired and worn out.
But you don't have to settle for that! Check out this article to learn how to get rid of bags under your eyes!
Best Practices To Get Rid of Bags Under Your Eyes Naturally:
Get that shuteye!
Sleep is crucial for good health and keeping your skin youthful. Not getting enough sleep is one of the main causes of under-eye bags. But did you know that how you sleep can affect that too?
And – news flash – if you are a tummy sleeper or a side sleeper, like me, these positions allow fluid to pool under the eyes during the night. Bummer. Side sleepers may actually notice that the eye they sleep on has a larger bag than the eye on the other side. Hence why my right eye looked worse than my left!
If your bags appear early in the morning but are generally gone by noon, it probably means fluid retention, adds skin care expert Nathan Halsey. “You may be able to reduce their appearance by simply using an extra pillow to elevate their head whilst you sleep on your back.”
Diet and lifestyle are important too. Make sure you drink plenty of water and protect your skin when you're out in the sun.
Finally, if you’re a sun bunny like me, make sure you use a nontoxic sunscreen under your eyes. UV damage can thin the skin and prompt a loss of elasticity, creating wrinkles and fine lines as well as darkening and pigment problems. Keep in mind that most mainstream sunscreens actually increase your risks of cancer because they are filled with crappy chemicals like parabens.
