Why do we get bags under the eyes and how to get rid of them

(ORDO NEWS) — Bags under the eyes can seem like a serious and even irreparable problem that spoils the appearance. However, there is a way to get rid of them.

Bags under the eyes do not look very good, that’s why we don’t like them so much. Here are the most common causes of their appearance and the best working methods that allow you to get rid of swelling under the eyes.

“Bags” is a slight swelling or puffiness under the eyes. They are normal and often appear with age, when the eyelid muscles around the eyes weaken.

The fatty tissue that supports the eyes can sag, causing the lower eyelids to look puffy. Fluid can also accumulate under the eyes. There are other factors that can affect the appearance of bags under the eyes, for example:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Allergic reaction
  • Fluid buildup in tissues (eg, after sleeping or after eating salty foods)
  • Genetics
  • The result of the influence of the sun
  • Bad habits

Bags under the eyes are characterized not only by swelling under the eyes, but also by sagging, loose skin in this area, as well as dark circles.

How to get rid of bags under the eyes

Cold compress

This may reduce swelling. To do this, you can use various objects, such as ice cubes or chilled spoons. Apply them on the area around the eyes for a few minutes. It’s best to do this while sitting.

Sun protection

The sun’s rays due to ultraviolet radiation have a negative effect on the skin and are an important factor in diagnosing various skin problems. Therefore, the use of sunscreen can prevent premature aging of the skin and the formation of bags under the eyes.

Cucumber patches

Cool cucumber slices reduce puffiness under the eyes, nourishing the skin and acting as a cold compress. They can also help you get rid of dark circles thanks to vitamin K. You can actually use them as an alternative to hydrogel patches.

Microcurrent therapy

By acting on the skin with microcurrents, you can reduce swelling and get rid of dark circles under the eyes. Regular sessions of such therapy give noticeable results.


This substance contributes to vasoconstriction, which is why it is used as part of many cosmetic products designed to combat swelling under the eyes and dark circles. Alternatively, you can also apply chilled tea bags to the skin around your eyes for a short time.


Be sure to eat more foods that contain collagen, vitamin C, and iron, and watch the amount of salt you eat, as this can cause fluid retention in the body during the day, resulting in puffy eyes. It is also better not to drink any liquid before going to bed.
