We now have an almost unlimited choice of highly efficient products that assist us in battling the countless signs of aging. We no longer have to grow old gracefully.

Yes, you can cover these areas with eye makeup products but that doesn’t always solve the issue. So..

How Do I Get Rid Of Bags Under My Eyes?

Women everywhere are constantly asking the question; “How do you get rid of bags under your eyes?” Fair enough! I think there are plenty of men who also grapple with the same concern.

If it’s not bags, it’s dark circles. And if it’s neither of these, it’s fine lines. These are the three main culprits. Well let’s go over a few remedies that are simple, but work rather well.

Clean Cold Water Treatment

First you have the cooling effect. If you wake up in the morning with bags under your eyes, I suggest you resort to a cold washcloth. Douse it in cold water, ring it out, and fold it. Lay back on the bed for five or ten minutes with this over your eyes. The puffiness will decrease.

Masks For Treating Bags Under Eyes

You can also purchase a simple eye mask that will have the same effect. Surely you’ve seen these before. They come in colors like green, blue or pink. Leave them in the refrigerator when you’re not using them. This way they’re always cold.

Furthermore, you can purchase eye compresses from cosmetic lines such as Borghese. These work like a charm and battle fine lines as well.

Sleeping Beauty Didn’t Have Bags Under Her Eyes

Probably the best solution for bags under your eyes is to get enough sleep and a proper diet. Too much salt can make this area swell up. And not enough rest can always contribute to eye area problems like bags, dark circles and puffiness.

Eye Cosmetics

One thing everyone should invest in is a quality eye cream or gel. These are awesome for dealing with dark circles and bags under your eyes. Apply with your ring finger in the morning and night after cleansing.

You’ll certainly see a decrease in dark circles, fine lines and puffiness if you use regularly. Virtually any cosmetic brand offers eye creams and gels. It’s up to you to find one that works wonders for your under-eyes.

A Photographer’s Story About Bags Under Eyes

It might seem that bags under your eyes are an indication that something is not quite right. I once did a model photo session with a delightful and lovely young woman—about twenty-three years old I think she was, who had perfect body, beautiful, shining hair, straight and clean white teeth, and flawless skin.

But, she had layers of bags under the eyes, which made onlookers think she was either fatally ill, had a big time sleep deprivation problem, or had a terrible drug or alcohol problem.

But she was genetically predisposed to this cruel feature, one to which no remedy applied would alleviate or remove. Many of us, that is, would consider this a cruel hand of fate having been dealt us.

One’s physical appearance is economically driven (the best-looking people have the most success in the business world, according to some statistic or other).

A woman’s physical appearance is a major contributor to the biological imperative (eyes spaced just so far apart, lips flush, hips of perfect child-bearing proportions and capacities, according to anthropologist Desmond Morris and others, are signs of symmetry and quality of species…which potential mates unconsciously measure).

And, of course, physical appeal—youth and beauty at the top of the list of desirable traits in fashion and beauty models — is brainwashed as the be all and end all for this our consuming culture.

But technically, a bag or dark circles under your eyes indicates that you have fluid collecting in the loose skin or a filling of the fat deposits in that area (creating shadows), says one health professional at TeenHealthFX.

And causally, you have bags under your eyes (or dark circles under your eyes), as nine out of 10 people do at one time or another in their lives (according to, because of numerous possible (and combined) sources:

  • Vitamin-deficiency
  • Poor diet
  • Overexposure to sunlight
  • Overuse (number one culprit: long-term pc monitor-reading)
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Allergies
  • Genetics / heredity
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Disease or illness (or organ damage)
  • Natural aging
  • Stress

So the next thing you might want to know is what to do about those bags under your eyes—how to lessen the bags or lighten the dark circles. Here’s where the beauty industry comes in, providing answers from solutions to surgery.

But for some milder cases, good old fashioned organic “remedies” still suffice. Some people apply warm (pre-steeped) teabags for about ten to fifteen minutes.

Others use a slice of raw potato cut in half, each half they put under each eye for about twenty minutes. And still others swear by the standby cucumber slices. Then again, there are scads of creams and lotions, anti-aging to anti-oxidant, which are claimed to really work for every purpose…save the hereditary.

So, before your next photo session, take another look at these eye care tips to enhance your beauty and get some great pics!
