The skin around our eyes is some of the thinnest skin in our bodies. That's why the area around our eyes can fluctuate so much in appearance even on a daily basis. If our bodies are retaining any extra fluid at all, the first symptom we'll notice is under eye bags.
Often, however, under eye bags aren't caused by fluid retention per se, but by an osmotic gradient. Even if you don't have an excessive amount of fluid in your body, fluid will always flow to areas where there's a higher concentration of salt. So if you eat salty potato chips before you go to bed, for example, you're setting yourself up for under eye bags in the morning.
Other issues that can contribute to under eye bags include allergies, sleeping on your stomach, going to sleep wearing makeup, imbibing excessive amounts of alcohol and rubbing your eyes frequently.
Then, of course, there's the aging process itself. As we age, the muscles around our eyes aren't quite as tight as they once were. They begin losing their battle against gravity. When muscles, ligaments and skin are affected by age, the underlying fat pockets push through.
The most effective and least expensive way to treat puffy eyes is with skin treatments, balms and creams that can moisturize and rehydrate the delicate area around the eyes.
Combine these skin treatments with cooling treatments that use traditional methods like cucumber slices or cold spoons. Cold causes the blood vessels in the areas around your eyes to constrict, and that will decrease swelling as well.
In today's culture, more and more people are turning to costly and unnecessary procedures like cosmetic surgery to get rid of under eye bags. Cosmetic surgery is very expensive, and despite what your cosmetic surgeon may tell you, it's not a permanent solution for puffy eyes or dark circles. In a few years, you will have to have the procedure performed all over again.
Research has discovered that the right skin treatment product in combination with cooling treatments is a very successful means of combating under eye bags.
