What Causes Baggy Eyes?
Are you tired of waking up to baggy eyes? Keeping view of how busy and stressful work and private life can be, chances are that your answer will be an affirmative. Since it’s hard to juggle multiple things at the same time, most people tend to neglect their appearance, often looking tired and dull most of the time.
Whether it is because of a busy working schedule, genetics, or your lifestyle, you’re looking for a solution. Various eye creams and natural treatments have been of little help, most often proven a failure in the elimination of these baggy eyes. Feeling hopeless? In order to reach the right solution, it’s imperative to be fully aware of the fretful causes behind it.
Take a look at these common conditions that lead to this facial phenomenon:
While most of us would love to believe the age-old myth of the ‘fountain of youth’, the sad truth is that there exists no such elixir that can turn back the clock and reverse the natural aging process. As we age, the muscles and ligaments present under our eyes that are responsible for holding back the fatty tissues tend to get weak. As a result, these tissues fall forward and form bags under the eyes. The more we age, more speedily these bags become a permanent fixture of our face. While anti-aging creams offer a temporary relief, slowing down the progression of age; there exists no permanent and reliable solution to this problem – other than plastic surgery.
One of the most recurring reasons why people get baggy eyes is because their parents have it too. Not many people know that heredity is a major eye bag initiator, much beyond our control. While many eye creams and concealers claim to overcome this condition, the fact is that they merely disguise it for a temporary period of time. Know that the underlying cause of this condition cannot be treated without getting plastic surgery.
Have you ever noticed baggy eyes early in the morning? This happens because our circulatory system runs in a much slower manner when we’re asleep than awake. As a result, fluid retention takes place which leads to the creation of bags on the under eyes. When you fail to get a goodnight sleep, the body, being in a stressful state, prevents the circulatory system from flushing out the excess fluid. While early morning bags that vanish by noon are not a serious concern, the bags that persist throughout the day can be a sign that you are not getting enough sleep.
How to Get Rid of Temporary Baggy Eyes
By following these quick and easy tips, you can eliminate the presence of temporary baggy eyes:
- Apply a cold compress over the eyes for a few minutes. Doing so helps get rid of the swelling;
- Brew 2 green tea bags in water and allow them to cool. Once cooled, lay them onto your eyes for at least 10 minutes. This promotes circulation and reduces the engorgement;
- Stay away from foods and beverages that encourage fluid retention such as alcohol, coffee, white sugar and fried foods etc.
