Puffy bags under eyes

Before we discuss treatment, it's important to understand the difference between puffy eyes and bags under eyes. Puffy eyes are very common and are caused by fluid retention. This fluid literally "pools" in the area under our eyes while we sleep at night, making it look as if we have "bags" under our eyes when we wake up in the morning. Puffy eyes are a nuisance when you want to look your best. There are several ways to quickly rid yourself of puffy eyes, which are discussed below.

True bags under the eyes are the result of accumulated fat in the eye area. This occurs when the septum surrounding the eyeball weakens, causing the outer layer of fat within the socket to sink forward – making it look like you have literal "bags" under your eyes.

The only cure for bags under the eyes is a surgical procedure called blepharoplasty, which removes excess fat, skin and muscle around the eyes. There are also many temporary fixes for bags under eyes that can tighten and lighten the skin around your eyes to decrease the size and appearance of your bags.

Treatment for puffy eyes and bags

The best and easiest treatment for puffy eyes and bags can be found in a bottle. There are many good eye serums on the market that combine the best of science and nature to eliminate puffiness and reduce the appearance of bags. Our favorite combines powerful Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, which lessens the appearance of bags by suppressing the body's production of interleukins, the chemical messengers that trigger inflammation, and Aloe Vera and cucumber extracts. The result is a serum that tightens, lightens and cools the eyes.

There are also many home remedies to reduce puffy eyes and bags. They involve applying cucumbers, tea bags or cold compresses to the eyes. Tea bags work best for bags, as the tannins in tea acts as an antiinflammatory. If you're trying to combat under eye puffiness, remember that the key to reducing puffiness is drainage, so if you're lying down to apply your treatment, you won't be as successful.

Many treatments also come from the inside out, so before you begin to tackle those bags, make sure you eliminate the common medical causes of bags under eyes.
